Re: NY's Salmon River in October
The Kings are already in the river! If your going on a weekday try the Upper Fly area there will be loads of fish when your going and unfortunately quite a few fisherman! If you fish on a weekday and work the lower half (down river) of the fly zone many times you can have it to yourself . Also as swampdonkey mentioned the smaller Tribs don't usually get the same crowds. If you get some rain prior to fishing the Tribs can be very good!
Just below the DSR is great that time of year but it's a tough wade and walk from the bridge but worth it because your only.competition is generally boats!
I'm heading up Monday I'll try to post how it's going!

And last year in October the Steelhead were thick upriver! Plenty of Chromers to go around!
