Trout Beads for Salmon River NY
Hey !

Soon, I'll purchase some beads from Home for a trip to SR and tribs in upstate NY.

For november fishing, what types of beads I need ? (colors and size) I think Tangerine color match with salmon eggs ? in a 6mm to 10 mm size ?

Are they effective in hight and low water level ?

And last question, what is the best way to fish with ? (number and size of split shot, hook sizes, type of tippets.) Thancks Steelheaders !!:D

PS: Sure on the NY state, leads split shot are forbidden ?

Believe it or not blue beads are a hot color in the Salmon River. Also clear.watched a guy using just a clear land 3 chromers on as many casts. Lead is prohibited in the Salmon. Try blue yarn eggs with pearl flashabou tails, deadly!

Hi The boz, ok I'll take also blue ones. For the split shot, what can we use on the SR ?

Tungstun, brass anything but lead. All the tackle stores in town(Pulaski) have alternative weights . Take your pick.

OK, about the blue beads, it was on fall or spring time ?

Ben, blue seems to be a good trigger color for steelhead in both the fall AND spring. While its good to have your classic orange, peach, and chartreuse, it's definitely worthwhile to have some blue, pink, and purple in there too.

Hi AJ !!

You steel in Sweden ?? I saw in the DSR page that some chinooks enter the river ! Ready for the season ?

I just place an order on Our New "Dead Egg White" Color: OTTER'S Soft Milking Egg® patterns for fly fishing for some tangerine, apricot, blue and dead whites eggs. Blue is a strange color, what kind of egg species it imitate?

I'm back in the States now, the Salmon River gets fish a little bit earlier than we do, but I've heard very scattered reports of possibilities in my area as well.

You cant buy lead in ny but you can use it. I just checked the regulations for the salmon river and oswego river. I live right down the road and use lead all the time. Although its recycled lead I have pulled out of the rivers during low water times.

Re: Trout Beads for Salmon River NY
Whilst fishing on the SR I overheard 2 guides talking.

What are they hitting?
Retro roe.
When aren't they hitting retro roe.
Salmon river special.

Its a pinkish blue. Fat Nancys sells them

Use a toothpick to stick it 1.5-2" above the hook.
