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.

The Salmon season is behind us now and the river is full of Steelhead. We started out mid-October with low warm water and plenty of steelhead that weren't eager to bite. Now on November 1st we have really high water and good water temps and the outside temp is 68 (not bad huh?) and a river full of eager to bite steelhead. Once the flows settle back down we will be set up for a great fall/winter season. My November is full and I have some December dates still open. If your interested in a trip, please call or e-mail to discuss it. Paul
