Guided Fly and Spey Fishing Trips for Steelhead and Brown Trout with
|Posted on August 4, 2015 at 4:20 PM|
Fished the Salmon River yesterday and today looking for summer steel or atlantics. I always forget just how much the river looks like a classic new england salmon stream. Tanic water flowing fast over dark colored cobble and boulders. No wonder this river hosted one of the most prolific atlantic runs in colonial times. This proved not to be the case over the last few days as the only thing missing were the salmon! Saw a couple (literally 2 or 3) in the tailout of the top pool, but they sure as shit werent interested in anything. Fished the entire upper flys only section yesterday and today. Threw muddlers, caddis, bombers, foam wakers, and classics. Managed a few stocker steelhead smolts 6-8 inches long on a waking bomber. Any time a fish takes a wakng dry its fun, but they came in pretty easy on a 12'6" 6wt spey rod.
