I started Saturday morning fishing for a couple hours in the Upper Fly Fishing Zone of the Salmon River. It started a bit slow but after about 30 minutes the action picked up. I got into and quickly lost a big brown trout. The big browns have been my nemesis so far this season. After that I landed a big male coho, a brown trout and a small chrome steelhead. All in all, it was a pretty good morning.
I decided to head out around 11:00am and fish Grindstone Creek for a little while in the afternoon. I was able to land a nice steelhead, just starting to get the winter colors. It wasn't a big fish, but it was a great looking fish. There were an encouraging amount of steelhead around as well as some zombie kings still in the mix.
I was able to talk myself into staying overnight at my parent's house in Pulaski to squeeze in a couple hours on the River Sunday morning before heading back out of town for work. It was a beautiful frosty morning on the SR. I fished mid-River and was alone except for a few other guys. I landed a great steelhead on the spey rod. It is amazing how those fish can rocket right out of the water! No photos though unfortunately. No sooner did I get the hook out, he bolted back into the current. I gotta find more fishing buddies to capture more of these fish on camera!
