I cancelled my trip this past weekend as well. The fishing will be fine when you head up. Some steelhead have already spawned early, some are in the mix of spawning, and plenty of others are starting to get the "itch." Steelhead are still entering the river as well.

I'm headed up over my spring break(March 21-24). I've never been to the Salmon nor have I ever been steelhead fishing. Really excited but not sure what to expect. I fly fish Little Pine and Big Pine Creeks here in PA frequently. Any similarities? Any advice is welcomed.

Freaking running at almost 1400 but we're still gonna give it a go. Might try the DSR on Friday.

1400 is no big deal. Id prefer 1400 to 500 at this time of year. I'd focus from the trestle upstream. If the release drops to 500, id try between the staircase and black hole. There are definitely more fish at the upper end of the river. I would never fish fhe dsr but thats another story.

My advise on fishing the Salmon River is make sure you have spikes on your boots,it's too cold to swim in March.

I don't have spikes but I'm very careful when wading because I'm so tall. I can get off balance really easy. I always carry a staff, and I never wade past my knees unless I absolutely have to. It helps having a 12 foot spey rod.

If you need some add on spikes, check this product out. Been dealing with the owner and got a pack myself to add on my boots. I have heard nothing but good things about the product.

If you think you might go to the DSR this time of year, you MUST have some sort of spikes on your boots or they will not let you in.

Anyone been up lately? I know they gotta bunch of rain and it's running a little high now... Any suggestions of where to go other than the main river would be appreciated. Guess it's running around 1200 now and supposed to increase by the time I get there tomorrow night. Not asking for specifics, just possibly a name of a smaller water that might be a little easier to fish.

Every stream,river,brook and trickle is going to be blown after this rain and warm spell.I fear that if you go it will be impossible to find fishable water.If you try the SR be very carefull,do not wade above your ankles.

'ppreciate the feedback gentlemen. Still gonna make the trip as its a miracle in itself my vacation was approved at work this time of year. If all else fails, we got plenty of beer and Jamison. Either way, no complaints here. Still beats sittin' at a desk all day...
