2020 fall salmon fun

Postby plant_one » Fri Oct 02, 2020 9:54 am

Tough couple days on the river but it all came together tuesday evening with 2 fish in the net. Went 2/17 over a couple days.

Thesw #6 Black Stonefly nymphs i tie with a pegged bead above it seems to make these fresh push fish go a little nutty.

Fish were large and powerful again this year - cousin managed to land a 40" buck that came in at 23 lbs.


As you can see the hen i landed purged hard-core so no egg weight at all. She was dead empty by the time we had a chance to hook her on the scale.




33" - 10½ lbs

27" - 6½ lbs
