Salmon River: 10/30-11/3

Post by justin.czu » Mon Nov 04, 2019 11:36 am

Went up to the Salmon River last week for our annual fishing trip. Wednesday and Thursday were slow, but solid fishing. I managed to land about 12 steelhead between the 2 days. One of which included my personal best, 17 lb steelhead. A lot of browns are in the river. All caught on an orange salmon egg bead, which seemed to be the hot bait. Not many hook ups on other baits. They seemed to want natural colors. Blue goo egg sac was not working :lol:

Thursday rained all day, and they opened the dam Thursday night. The main river was unfishable Friday and Saturday. Fished some smaller creeks and caught a small steelhead (probable 5 lbs), and some wild rainbows.

Some pics below. Hopefully they show up

Good luck! The steelhead seemed to want natural colors this year. I was catching them on a 10 mm orange egg bead. Tight Lines!!!
