Fall Salmon Run

Recommended Posts

GoggleEye

I was wondering if anyone can suggest a good starting point for going after some of the spawning salmon coming up rivers and streams? I am new to the trout and salmon fishing as of this year and I have got the rainbows figured out and would now like to figure out the spawning salmon. If I can fit it into my fall schedule, I would like to give it a try for a couple days or so. Also, if you can suggest any specific type of presentations to use, I would appreciate it. I am guessing the standard spawn sacs and spinners should be included in my arsenal, but as far as the rest goes, I have no clue! Thanks for any help.

Good luck finding any in the metro, thats for sure. Dont get your hopes up for salmon this year either. The water up here in duluth is so low the fish cant even get in the rivers. some are even bone dry.

just keep checking the BWCA, duluth, ely area forums on the site.

yea, the rivers are blown out. you cant see a dang thing. There is a HUGE thread about the salmon run in the BWCA, Ely, duluth area regional forums, I suggest looking there. Right now the rivers are too muddy to fish in my opinion.

It was very muddy yesterday still, and probably will be for a while.

Sounds like you need to head west! As in west coast, fall salmon run in on and if you ever get a chance to fish it, do it.

      Nice gill Rick

      HunterFisher Don't rule out trying that lake again. If theres a lot of wood in the water those schools could, be pinned down on other trees than you were fishing. Trust me I have a lake near Glenwood i fish that has a bunch of tress scattered throughout the lake. It took me numerous times fishing it to figure out patterns on that lake. But once i found them well worth it!  I have found lakes with a lot of submerged trees or wood usally hold some real good panfish, . They have plenty of places to hide from predators and anglers through out the seasons.

      See you tomorrow Jeff we'll dial them in

      Keep checking in here for any updates.  There's a very good chance that the location may change a bit as there have not been a lot of catfish at the methhole area.  Prefishing in the next day or so will help us pin down a location.  I will post any changes here.
    • Borch
      A lake like that with no real hole or structure lends itself to roaming fish.  If there is a defined weededge that will be your structure.  Electronics are not going to show you much until the fish is on your bait.  Drill a lot of holes and move around until you catch fish.

      Hay thanks for your input.... Just got home and got skunked!!!!! But that is ok at least now I know to take it off my list of lakes to fish in the winter, but will be back on it come spring and early summer...

      Caught 17 walleyes on Friday, but all were dinks except for two 15".  Caught 6 more Saturday, all small again except for one 16".  Also caught a 12 inch perch, 3 eelpout, and 2 tulibee. Considering the snowstorm prediction for Sunday, I pulled my house off the lake and parked it back in the garage for the season.  LOW next week, then onto lakers the following weekend.
    • JerkinLips
      I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday. I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday.
