Been noticing lots of salmon are already running in the salmon river this week. Does this mean the run is on, or is this going to slow down with the water temps getting higher because the weather is warming up? I took the first week of October off for the salmon run, hope I'm not too late.

October will have more kings and lots of steelhead. Typically the salmon do start running right before labor day so dont panic.

Lots of good public access on the river. Black hole and Douglaston is where you want to be on weekends. If you are there during the week scout area out the nite before and then get in there early. PM me if u need more info

The Salmon start running in late August you should be fine, Now late October and November is a little late and the fish you do catch are black.

We're going to be fishing some new tribs this year, I love fishing the salmon river, but it just gets too crowded during the weekend, we'll fish the salmon river during the week but not on the weekends.

I will be going up October 10-15 and will be all over the river only spending time where we can find fish from Douglaston all the way past the hatchery above Altmar. looking forward to firing up the smoker.

I'm headed up October 1-6, I've seen lots of fish caught but they have been dying because the water temp has risen in the river the last few days.....once it cools and stays cool the masses will run.

Huge fish everywhere! The only crappy thing was the drag blew out on my 2 year old Pflueger Trion that I have only used a total of like six times
