    Salmon with Rainbow Sprinkles

    Good haul, nice to have some flow in that river for once. Feels like a decade since it was really producing during October.

    Wow that’s some great success! The colors on them look amazing. Some hefty fish too! NH fishing seems to be no joke :). Cheers!

    Wish I could join you. My 15 YO granddaughter is playing violin in her first concert with the Merrimack Valley Philharmonic on Sunday. Then I have some things to do all week. Bad planning.

    Glad that place eventually payed off in a big way. The weather has been perfect for getting those brutes on the move. Been seeing a lot of nice fish come from there this year on instagram. I'll be there tomorrow afternoon and monday!

    Salmon with Rainbow Sprinkles

    Wow, great report and photos. I was going to post a report on my trip for salmon. But after seeing the size and number of fish you caught I guess I’ll skip it. I got two and lost one. Caught one on a haresear and one on a streamer. Saw other fishermen and no one was doing much either. I was hoping for a fish like you caught but they just don’t seem to be in the river. Or at least that’s the general consensus. Congratulations on a great day of fishing (imho)! Thanks for sharing.

    Salmon with Rainbow Sprinkles

    All on WB. Olive on a couple. A sort of golden tan on the rest. I lost my last olive WB to a tree and was too lazy to go back to the car for more, so I switched to the tan one. Didn't seem to make any difference.

    Wow, very well done and beautiful pictures. What’s your fly of choice if you don’t mine sharing.

    Salmon with Rainbow Sprinkles

    exactly, the long "snout" makes me say male, don't think hens' get the "gap mouth" like that. They don't always have obvious kypes when they're under 18"/19" or so. Regardless, still a very nice looking fish along with the rest. Once again, well done!

    Salmon with Rainbow Sprinkles

    You may be right. As I look at the picture again the jawline looks more male. I was going mostly by the color when I caught it. It looked very different from all the others.

    I may be able to squeeze tomorrow in. Then I have a few days of 'other stuff' that will prevent my going back.

    Salmon with Rainbow Sprinkles

    If I were catching fish like those, you bet i would be making a trip back the next day! smart move.

    Salmon with Rainbow Sprinkles

    Sort of. Start to finish was less than 24 hours, but it was spread over two days, Friday PM and this AM.

    Salmon with Rainbow Sprinkles

    WOW! way to go, nice collection of kypes! is that all one day of fishing? if so, super impressive! last salmon kind of looks like a male to me, (not that it matters really).
  21. The salmon have finally started to show up in better numbers. So, off I went. Poor attempt to photograph a jumping salmon. It's harder than I thought. First of the season. A male. As were all except (maybe) one. Another male. A very pretty rainbow. Back to salmon. All of them were fat. And strong. Biggest fish of the day. I had a hard time getting the net around him. He's about 6 inches top to bottom. One more male. And a second rainbow. Last fish of the day was the only female (although I could be wrong about the sex). Friday morning was cold. Spent a lot of time breaking ice off the guides. Also learned that Touch ID on the iPhone doesn't work if your fingers are freezing. Obviously the fishing was good. I lost as many as I caught. Salmon jump enough to throw barbless hooks much more than trout do.

    I wonder if the ongoing construction to upgrade the water intake pipe to the hatchery had any impact on the fish entering the stream. The pipe is being extended to bring cooler water to the hatchery and is totally warranted. I think the pipe will extend 2 miles out from the dam and there was a substantial amount of work being done at and around the dam gates which may have effected fish movement. I did notice the work was to be completed by October 2nd and that date must have been extended .

    I forgot to mention billfish has a nice new old town canoe that is not tippy like those ratty aluminum ones.

    Update: I ended up fishing yesterday in the high wind and sleet at times. It was slow. Fish came in spurts. The good news is that there were fish in the lower river. If you’re going this weekend don’t don’t be afraid to walk a little, it paid off for me. That way you can avoid everybody and their brother. The Massachusetts hatch was thick, despite the cold.
