Salmon River Fishing Report 12/9/2019

Slush is starting to make its way through the river. However, the temperature started to warm up through the latter end of the weekend and anglers were able to land some fish in between piles of slush. A few browns were in the mix, but steelhead were brought to shore the most. The Lower Fly Zone has been producing quite a few fish as well as the lower end of the run itself. Anglers that are fly fishing are dead drifting nymphs or egg patterns with a bobber. Float and spinning anglers are bottom bouncing pink egg sacs and beads.
