  1. Yes, there is plenty of fish in the river. I fished mon afternoon between the bridges and had 2 for 9. It was loaded with them. Once they are there there is no going back. It is all upstream from then on.
  2. Lff, spoons have been the man overall around the river and out deep. Mags in front of the river and 28 size offshore. Bright stuff in either water. It is very green water no matter where you are, unless you are in the river flow. Flies and paddles are a whole nother issue. Keep it simple for now

There was a small upwelling then. The second slug arrived after the week of the windy noreasters we had. That was 9/8. At that time we had a good upwelling and all the salmon that were even thinking about it. busted a move to the river. The fishing was great the first few days, with double digit catches. Since then most of the fish went up the river. Last night i fished right behind my boat. Between the bridges we went 2 for 7. The stacked like cordwood in there. That is the deepest part of the river. We need another front to roll through to bring more fish. The 21 to the 29 north line has been awesome for monster steelhead and 2year old salmon. One trip pulled a steelie just under 18lbs with a few chrome matures as well. Anything silver green and glow was getting chewed. I will be all done fishing on the 28th. Too many things to do, wow. SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS ====================
  4. Hey Greg. i dont ever grab a rod UNLESS there are handicapped in some way. I have been known to back away, point, and shout fish fish fish. When i said recover the finances for them to join the loc, i mean pay me back for doing so, not looking for winnings. That would be a bonus.
  5. Thats a great thought to use the deposit money, as long as you can recover back the funds. I will try it for the next 6 days.
  6. The second day of the loc brought out a 35.54lb monster shark. Of course my charter was too late to enter for the day. (big surprise) Then as the day wore on we beached a 13.73 steelhead, killing me. Even better, a charter captain friend of mine boated a 19.22 brown. Yes, they were not entered either. The very next day, another buddy/charter capt. lands a 25 plus lake trout. Once again no entrys. This really sucks for promoting rochester fishing, and its great captains. I called dave chilson and told him the great news, he laughed. He assured me that this happens all the time. So see whitemule, we have the fish to be on the board, but we just dont get it done. Oh well there is still time left. By the way, there is some very large salmon swimming around this year. It has been 6 years sice we have seen a class of sharks like these. Good luck!
  7. Cutco fishermans solution is by far the best knife and the most expensive you will ever use. Guaranteed for ever.
  8. I always knew you were chicken farmer at heart. Thats definately a beauty. No more talking bad about those forkies. Fins, and a water tight ass, they are all good. Nice job at sandy.
  9. I agree with scott. We dont need to hear shark attacks, started with a triple, coppers on fire, no thanks. How about 200 to 275 water is hot with spoons, 3 to 5 out of the west today, temp is at 75ft in 180 today, etc, etc.
  10. Screamer, sure strike, top gun, fishin magician, high voltage, thats all i can remember matt. It was in that order. By the way fishing has been great home no matter where you go.
  11. I am not trying to make go fast rick, it just seems that way. I was just thinking last night while fishing (of course) we are through half the season in 2 more weeks! Time does fly when you are having fun.
  12. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name: ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s):6/30 7/1 2 3 4 Time on Water:4o hrs Weather/Temp:Waves: flat to choppy Surface Temp: 64 Location:braddocks to hedges LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: ????? too many (good problem) Total Boated:97 Species Breakdown:Kings browns lakers steelhead Hot Lure: White paddles green flys Trolling Speed: 2.5 2.7 Down Speed: same Lure Depth: 77 to 140 ====================Fishing has gone into the summer mode rather quickly. The bite has been unreal for all sorts of fish. The 2 year old kings showed up in numbers 8/2 and havent left as of today. The bait is scatterd everywhere and so are the fish. The best bite for me has been 150 to 250 ft of water. Spinnies and flys by far are the salmon preference. Steelheads and browns are chewing spoons in the upper warmer water. Deep ice water has beeen productive for the salmon as well, with lakers sprinkled in there. The water from braddocks to hedges is all the same picture, take your pick. There are some older kings around, but not in big numbers yet. Things are looking great so far. Good luck. SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS ====================
  13. I bay fishing has been awesome. Fished the last three days there, and had plenty of 2 and 3 year old class salmon. There is a abundance of 3-4 year old lake trout as well. The steelhead are hiding in the warmer water, with the salmon in the deep ice water, 120 to 140 down. Not really seeing as many as we are catching down in those depths. They were chewing flys for me.
  14. There are more chemicals in a jar of peanut butter, then a properly filleted fish.
