initial fishing report 25 Oct 17
despite ideal human conditions (50 degrees, sunshine, dead calm), and CFS 335 / 476, water temp at 56 degrees, the initial River Patrol report is that “all’s quiet” on the run . . . upper section has a few clients fishing, a solitary Steelhead landed, little fish movement – middle section a bit more active, producing a Steelhead and nice Domestic Rainbow so far – lower section seeing some Steelhead, but no indication of fish moving up into the run (some few are milling around in the estuary section)
Fishing Report 25Oct.2017
Most guests reported the fishing to be slow today with just a few hookups or fish brought to hand. Our river patrol also reported the fishing to be relatively slow all over the run. However, they said that there are a few fish but people need to work for them. They noted that the people getting hookups are those who bother to stick around and work for the bite.
The posted water release from the Salmon River reservoir is currently 335 cubic feet per second thru midnight tonight. The recorded water flow at the USGS Streamflow gauge on the Salmon River at Pineville is currently 464 cubic feet per second.
