    Default Salmon River trip

    Hello all,
    I will be fishing the Salmon river in Pulaski NY this weekend. I was there at the begining of Sept and we had a blast. That was my first time ever fishing Salmon. I am now "HOOKED". We caught some monster Kings at 31 lbs and 28 lbs. This time around I am hoping to catch a steelhead for another first.
    I will give all those interested a full report on the fishing conditions when I return. I will post some photos if I can figure it out. I am not much of a computor guy as I try to spend most of my free time on the water fishing or in the woods hunting. Maybe someone here can tell me how to get the pics posted. Thanks, be back shortly with my report.

    I can safely say i'll never fish the Salmon River again.

    It's a great river, or was, but there is just too much drama goes on there during salmon season and to a certain extent steelhead season....

    Drama i'm just not prepared to deal with....

    You're lucky I wasn't on the river and that I saw this

I am swamped with work and do not have much time right now. I also want to incluse a few good photos. I want to give an informative report and not just a yeah fishing was good.

    Well then, it sounds like you're the type member we love to hear from here.

    If you have any trouble posting photos check this thread out: http://www.theflyfishingforum.com/fo...to-bucket.html

    I updated it because Photo Bucket did a software change about 6 months back and I hope it is helpful.

    I just fished the salmon river a few days ago (10-9-13) and fishing was very good.

    We starter at the lower end of the DSR and had a few hook ups but very very slow.

    Then we launched the drift boat up river and stopped in a few spots. Fishing was very good. Tons of salmon. Lots of hook ups. FYI - we didn't fish from the boat, just took it to our spots.

    Landed a 25 lb female and 27 lb male. Both pretty fresh. This was only my second time fishing salmon on the fly rod so there was a learning curve that I had to go through.

    Lots of people don't like the crowds but I can tell you from being in the drift boat for 8 miles of river that there are areas with a crowd then areas we stopped with no one but us and plenty of fish.

    Also the crowds are not what they were two weeks prior. (9-25-13)
    Stay away on weekends!

    Johnny
