Winter is in full effect right now on the Salmon River. The lake effect snow and single digits at night means slush will start being a factor. Here are a few tips to help you be successful. No need to start at first light. Usually the bite doesn't start til the sun hits the water and the air temp rises. Fish slow and deep especially in higher flows. Fish flies you have confidence in. Concentrate on the guts and tail-out of pools. Dress appropriately, wear layers and it help to be in a drift boat with heaters.

It’s hard to believe its early November already, where did the fall go? Everyone has steelhead fishing and hunting season on the brain, including myself; I’m looking forward to spending time in the woods with friends and family starting next Saturday. Fishing on the Salmon River is back to real steelhead fishing, very humbling for most guys; you have to work hard for every fish, covering lots of water effectively, changing flies often, and thinking out of the box on the heavy pressured water to find a couple each day. So get out there and enjoy yourself and time on the water with friends. - Paul

Francois and Sylvain hit it right this time for their annual spring trip to the Salmon River after we had to reschedule due to the river running at 5000cfs. Swinging flies high in the water column was just what they wanted to do and they did. I will let the smiles tell the rest of the story. Looking forward to seeing you guys next season!
