Musky in Salmon River ?

Recommended Posts

Never caught an adult but did catch a musky fry about 5” on an egg sac at the trestle pool years ago.  I wouldn’t be surprised to see them in the lower river but was really surprised to catch one that far upstream

Can’t say for sure what year but between the range of late ‘90’s and before 2005 since I haven’t done much steelhead fishing since then.  Even at such a young stage, the markings clearly looked to be a musky to me.  I have caught many northerns in the estuary but haven’t heard of any muskies caught in that area but seems like all the habitat they would need are present there.

It never got hooked but the teeth got caught up in the egg sac mesh which is how I landed it

Yes in the little salmon in the early 2000’s, there was a 47” musky taken after the second bend. Have never heard of one in the Big Salmon.

Once in a while you hear of charter captains hooking them in the lake. When I fish for kings from the piers in the fall the gizzard shad come in thick. Sometimes ill see something big busting on them. Not sure if its big pike or angry salmon but if there are some wandering the lake it would only make sense a couple follow those big shad in

      A big shout out and thank you to the Salmon River Fish Hatchery Biologists and staff for the job that they do.  After literally going every year and standing above the arena since the late 80's I was finally able to partake in what goes on down below.  The perspective definitely changes when on the floor and many of the misconceptions that I did not realize I had have been cleared up BIG TIME.  It is a whirlwind once the fish start coming and does not stop until the last one is spawned, research
