This is a real Salmon River NY report with eyes on the river. I drove down yesterday in the afternoon to the river. The river off course looks beautiful but what I’m most interested about is whether salmon are entering the river. On different social media sites guys are posting up fake reports cause its a good way to get people riled up and its hilarious to see the reactions of people. Part of this is just cause everyone are bored and just anxious to hear about a real report of fish in the Salmon River. Once fish start entering the tributaries lots of the social media outlets go quiet as guys and gals are out fishing instead of sitting in front of a computer.
Since I’m still a newbie I learned from a seasoned fisherman that to know really what is happening on the river go and check the final destination. For salmon the final destination on the salmon river is the hatchery. I watched for a while by the brook where they enter the hatchery and did not see any fish. I then checked the tanks or ladders not sure what they are called and there were 3 big size fish in there.
