Going up to Salmon river NY 3/14-3/15.... Gonna hit one of these creeks on my way back home to harrisburg on the 16th. Anyone ever fish these? I believe their in Luzerne Co. I think they have a regs section. If anyone has any insight or would like to meet up on the 16th on one of these creeks shoot me a pm.

Thanks in advance

They both have special regs areas. A lot depends on the weather, I'd say Nescopeck will be ahead of Bowmans because it is much farther south. But check to see if they've been stocked or when they'll be stocked. Both also have decent populations of wild fished, based on my experience though, Nescopeck has more wild fish.

The object of a resource is to use and reuse a resource, not to use it up, have we learned nothing in over 125 years of stocking?

Never fished either but I had a near death experience on the Nescopeck. It was February 1976 and I was kayaking for the first time with friends who had more experience than I. Water was over the back and up into the laurel and trees. Beautiful stream from the parts I saw while upside down. Would definitely like to see it sometime from above the water.

Appreciate the feedback guys... I have family just outside of Wilkes Barre and haven't fished up there in about 10 years. I know they don't stock until later so I guess I'll see how well they hold over and hopefully can get into some wilds. Thanks again!
