This Salmon Angling rookie was quickly enjoying the action. He hooked at least two fish during his first session on the river. This is true for all of our guests as they all reported hooking fish before dinner.
I heard one report of a pair that had a double header that almost became a triple. They managed to land the first fish and just as they released the second one the first angler hooked into another.
Guides and guests tell me that fish seem to be moving very quickly up river. They will see fish in the pools and have hot action for a period of time and then it stops suddenly; only to start again when the next school of fish move up into the pool.
This is not overly surprising with the river conditions. The fish realize that the river is low by the force of the current. Instinctively they start to head up river as far and as fast as they can before water levels decrease too much.
The decreasing water levels will continue for the time being because there has been only intermittent light rain showers for quite some time now. The forecast shows no relief in sight.
