It's spawning run time and new fish in the river are very eager to chase a bright colored streamer. Cast cross current and let it swing. Expect the hit to come at the end of the swing when the fly stops at the end of the swing.
Nymphing is also very productive. Once fish are in the river for a while they begin to ignore streamers so you need to deliver a lays potato chip to the couch potatoes glued to the bottom.
The river has fish throughout. They can be tough to catch on some days but you may catch the biggest salmon of the season on the next cast.
Remember there is only a little over a week left to fish fish the entire river. On Nov.1st the only section that remains open will be from the Dam on Moosehead to the yellow posts at the Beach Pool.
