I have not seen this many fish this early in the 33 years I have been fishing this great river. I can only hope it continues. On May 27th I lost a bright Salmon in the 12-15 lb range (broke my 6lb test) and landed one nice grilse around 23", I also rose several other fish which hit my fly but no hookup(this could have been the same fish rising several times). On May 28th also landed a nice fish 32" long.
On June 4th I arrived at the pool at 8:15 pm and at 9:25 hooked and landed a 32-34 inch fish.
On June 5th I hooked and landed the 3 Salmon the smallest 32" and the largest 35".
I would just like to remind everyone to please get these fish in as fast as you can put these beautiful fish back as gently as you can. Make sure you hold on to them to make sure they fully recover. Please don't hold them out of the water too long for picture taking. Thanks

Here is a link to a video I shot of me releasing a 35 inch fish. Look at the sea lice on the back.
