Multi-species social. That's a great video. Wish I were there.

That blitz @ 2:40 is awesome.

Sorry, that isn't even close to the Salmon River.

Wow. After watching that video, any desire I had to fish there just died.

Flyspoke, I stand corrected. That was a great video. I could not handle being shoulder to shoulder with people like in the original video to which I responded, but the one you posted was much more alluring.

Big difference between the salmon run and when steelhead is the target. Now, on the other hand not seeing any others on the river is just as unique.

It is always worth a trip out so long as you are able to be flexible to the conditions at hand.

When faced with crowds, id rather be on the ocean. Theres a little more room to spread out.

Good point FlySpoke. I've been to the Salmon River in October during the salmon run. I would never do it again. Now I only go in late november when the steelhead and browns are the quarry and the salmon are all dead. Crowds are tolerable. We make sure to get out early, before first light, and get situated where we want to fish. This is typically somewhere in the DSR or at the Upper Fly Zone. Never really had a problem that way, always a great time and one of my favorite trips of the year.

It is a plain fact, however, that downstream fishing with a non-imitative fly (lure, in the British sense) does not mix comfortably with upstream imitative fishing...I'll stay out of the argument about whether this technique is really fly fishing. In terms of interest, it is for me ahead of most downstream fishing and spinning. And I've already opined that spinning is better than staying at home with the television set.
