Re: Pacific Salmon on Flies - By Dennis Dickson
Good article by someone who has caught Salmon on the fly. Kings will take a dead drift fly if it is put in there mouth. Silvers love flies and they are no problem with catching them. Reds may be the hardest to entice with a fly but in Alaska with millions passing by it is not hard to get a taker. I mentioned on another post about floating a fly under a red and getting a take when it comes out on the other side of the fish. This is a trick taught to me by the owner of Ole Creek lodge in Alaska. Even if Salmon do not eat in fresh water they will respond with a reaction strike much like bass.
