Re: NY's Salmon River in October
I am coming to the party a little late but i will offer my 2 cents. I was there the 7th of September and the fishing was great. The kings are still in the water but they are thinning out. The cohos will be coming in very shortly. There will be browns also and some steelhead. The other guys are not kidding when they say that on the weekends it will be shoulder to shoulder. There is lots of river to fish that is free and some of the hot spots are the ballpark,the sportsmans pool and the thistle pool. the compactor pool is pretty good to. You can go on the DEC website and download a map of the river. I hope you have a place to stay as most places will be booked. Good luck.
