Hi Keith.This has been a funny black salmon season indeed.
While my luck was not as good as my fishing buddy Jason Lyons…we had a fantasic weekend.Many salmon(mostly grilse) and trout were caught during the “Mayfly hatch” on size 14 dry Mayfly pattern and also on other dry flies(brown bombers and Royal Wulff).I had heard about it(ie mayflies and spring salmon) but never experienced it.The weekend before we were fishin sinking lines and big flies.
Hopefully we get some water soon.
Good Luck to you and your guests!
That explains why the fish are fattened up . I have caught a few salmon late in the season before on bombers but have never tried to “match the hatch” . The weather today , and most of this week is cold rainy so it will be interesting to see how the fish react to that . Probably no hatch for sure .
