At The Oak

10/8/12

Spent the past three days fishing the salmon run on the Oak Orchard River. The salmon are in and they are are meaner and fighting harder than in years past.  The chinooks are tough fighters, and as I discovered too big for my net.  The water flows were on the low side but still enough to give the fish plenty of water to swim and fight.  The two most effective flies were a chartreuse Estaz Grande Egg and a black woolly bugger.  I believe fly selection isn't as important as just getting the fly in front of the fish.  The salmon aren't feeding but the browns and steelhead are so use use a fly that imitates the salmon eggs.  Almost all of the fish I caught came from the head of Sycamore Pool.

I will be writing a article on fly fishing for salmon this week so check back later.


Even with a 10 wt. rod the salmon goes were it wants to.
