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.

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.
