Salmon River Report 9/28

published 28 September 2015

This morning we have been getting a steady run of Coho's pushing through the lower end of the DSR which is a good sign for what should be headed our way over the next couple of days. We have finally gotten a break in the weather pattern from the last several days, with overcast conditions and rain in the forecast. Much colder weather is also on the way with Wednesdays high predicted not to get out of the 50's. The estuary is also holding a good number of fish which can quickly fill up the river when they run. Moving out to the lake the picture in 40 feet was excellent today with nonstop marks all morning. Fish continue to hold in the deeper pools upstream, with the Trestle Pool continuing to be one of the best spots. Both fly sections on the river are also producing action with a mix of Salmon and Trout.The river flow continues at 350 CFS until midnight tonight. Large bodied flies and egg sacs are good choices for salmon right now. We're leaving our report at a 2 until we see how big the coho run was and how fast they move upstream. Things seem to be shaping up for a good stretch ahead over the next couple of weeks.
