We were in camp over the recent holiday weekend and had good, what I call, "pass shooting". For five days we saw a steady stream of salmon of all sizes moving through the water we were fishing in Blackville. Occassionally a fish would take the fly; almost all of these were grilse. If you didn't get them on that first strike they were gone 95% of the time. The water was dropping, but was just too high for real holding. There were as many fish on the move as I can ever recall seeing for such a long period, and several of the ones that we caught had sea lice.
My friend said to me, "I don't know where these fish are going to begin to hold up, but somewhere, someone is having incredible fishing". That's my question, anyone have the answer?
