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

    • Salmon/Trout fishing from SHORE or close to it

      When is it a good time to start fishing fro salmon/trout from shore, or from a small bass boat? When do they start to migrate to the shallow waters? I understand it has to do with water temps, when will the lake flip and bring those fish closer? I like to use spoons, hoping to take my 16 ft Almunacraft on the lake but obviously not very far, hoping to stay near shore to get some salmon or trout. Thanks for help
