Salmon, Salmon, Salmon! Recent rains have been right on que helping to send the first salmon of the season up the early rivers. I had the pleasure to fish today with State Senator Bob Jackman of Indiana. He an his wife were out for their first salmon streamer trip. I could not have asked for better conditions; stained water, Foggy sky, and practically no fishing pressure. We had 20 to 25 chases with one solid fish that was lost before it was boated. Understanding that “chases” are 80% of the fun it was a great day! 10wt fly rods with 400gr streamer express lines were on the order of the day; Salmon Snakes, Swimmy Jimmy’s, and Alewive patterns rounded out the flies of the day.

Tight lines,
