Had great fun by all. This year we had 13 guys on the trip to the Salmon River NY. The steelhead run hasn’t really panned out yet. The water levels were low and the air hot! The smell of the old salmon was pretty strong. The system hasn’t had a flush of water coupled with warm weather made for a pretty good odor. We all hooked up, some more than others. It’s all about location on the river. Up high had the most fish while some of our group did good on some fresh fish down in Douglaston. The magic fly for our trip was the chartreuse estaz egg.
Low water and difficult conditions really cut out where we could take the hard boats. We had sub par dry fly action compared to past falls however worked hard for our fish. We are praying for a good rain to get one more bump in the system before we switch over to winter steelhead. November 3rd is our first group trip.
