Salmon River trip this fall
 
Hi !! I'm looking for a small week trip this fall (come from France) and I first think about the SR !!

There are a lot of lodges and inns. Anyone better than others with a resonable price ?

I'm new in Steelhead fishing, and I will need a fly fishing guide. You guys know a good one ? And last question, november is very crowded ?

Thancks

I don't know much about hotels in that area but I would consider fishing the Douglaston Salmon Run. Have a look they might even be able to set you up with well just about everything, Douglaston Salmon Run, World-Class Salmon Fishing << Douglaston Salmon Run northeast Salmon fishing Steelhead Coho Bass fishing upstate NY >>. Hope that helps, its a bit exspensive but its your best bet for avoiding the circus up there.

Thancks wt bash !! Yes I saw the DSR. It's expensive you're right....but they own the only private piece of the river ?

Maybe on smallers rivers it's better ?

There used to be a few escape creeks along the coast but those little secrets have been found out. Its actually not that bad in terms of crowds, its at its worst during the salmon runs but once the cold starts to really settle in the crowds drop off. You can always find some water to yourself. If you hire a guide they can put you on less crowded sections. The reason I reccomended the DSR is that you don't have to fish in a mess, no trash, its taken care of and angler etiquette is somewhat upheld, plus its nearly all fresh fish in from the lake.

Hi Ben,

You don't have to be a guest to fish the DSR. You can stay at lodgings off site and pay a fee each day to fish there. I believe it's $45 per person per day. If your coming from France it's well worth it. Lodging prices vary depending on what your looking for. You will find very reasonable pricing if you look. November is a great time on the DSR and the crowds are gone.

DSR lodging prices are ok if you have a large group, but for 1 or 2 anglers it's just to much.

I always stay at Brenda's motel when I'm there. It runs about $50 per night per person. It's not the Ritz but it's fine for me.
I believe it has changed hands this spring but it is being kept the same....at least that's what I've been told. It's close to the river, though you will need a car up there. Pulaski is a great fishing town with plenty of fly shops and restaurants. Well worth the trip. Wading there can be tricky, so make sure you have plenty of studs on your wading boots.

If you PM me I can recommend a good guide for you.

Ben, let me know when you're going to headed to the area, I live pretty close to the Salmon River (a few hours) and maybe I can meet you out there for a day or two, or even put you on some other water in the area.
