Re: Anybody been to the Salmon since the high water?
I just got back last night. I fished Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Only hit the SR a little each day. Water still up, 1600 until Monday, and off-color. I would not say Choco milk, as you can see the bottom in some of the shallow areas but it is not any where close to clear. We fished the ball park all days. Thursday being the best. Friday was just ok until around 10 then nothing. I stayed away on Saturday as the place was a mad house. We mainly hooked kings but there was quite a few steel on.
We didn't hit the popular tribs as they were as varmitblaster discribed. I don't fish that way. The river has changed a lot. Some holes fille in, some new ones were created but it's still the same river. I think most of the salmon fishing is comeing to an end, thank god. Looks to me like an early trout season this year. I did hit the LFZ Friday and Saturday. There was a lot of kings there and some trout mixed in but mostly kings. fish the slack water or off the main current and you will find fish.
Yes we have electricity in Shunk... We just have to feed the squirrels every day.
