Fishing Report


Salmon River

The Salmon are here! Salmon season opened up on the upper Salmon today and few fish have being caught. The water has been a little high but clearing up and dropping fairly quickly. The river flows are around 1600cfs(dropped 800cfs in the last 4 days). I wouldn’t fish any higher up river than East Fork for now. The Pahsimeroi  has 54 in the hatchery so far. Herring, tuna balls and roe are all being used for bait. For lures try Mepps Fly C’s (7/8oz),,K.O.Wobbler (3/4oz), Blue Fox Vibrax (7/16oz). or Kwikfish K-15’s.

These Salmon will take flies, so you might want to try swinging a few and if you hook one, Hold on!
