Hey! welcome aboard.

Yes there will be salmon in the rivers.

New Member umichjesse said it best.

"I won't share the names of the rivers but I really don't need to. The pinks will be in any river with enough water. 95% of the fishing is done within a half mile of the lake so it is only a matter of stopping your car and taking a look in the river. If the fish are there, you will see them. If you don't see any, hop in the car and check the next river. The dead give away will be all the cars parked next to the bridge.

Normally I am more willing to give out information, but the north shore tribs are so short that they get over crowded quickly. If it were a longer river like the Brule (Wisc) then I probably would name names.

Believe me, you WILL find pinks, and the exploration will make it that much more satisfying."

So those thinking about chasing salmon this weekend, we've had plenty of rain, the timing is just about perfect. The salmon will be in and you won't find a report saying so in so river is hot. That much you'll have to do for yourselves.

I'm not naming any rivers, but they do have a slight tint of pink running through them!

How long do the salmon usually run? Is a trip in early October worth it?

I couldn't resist this one but is a bear Catholic? I mean does the pope go in the woods? Well you get the point. Sorry, again, I couldn't resist.

The salmon run usually peaks last half of sept into the 1st week of oct. I have had good fishing into the last week or so of oct. But that was a while back and the runs just ain't what they used to be.

      I also needed to buy a receiver so my total cost was $500 but they did have them at Scheels beginning of the year but you can buy it from dish. I think they charge $7 a month for use of the receiver.

      I was out last night in west metro and the water had mostly either frozen again or gone down the open holes. I was pleasantly surprised. We lost about an inch of ice though the top few inches were starting to soften.

      I would build a frame that your current otter sled would fit in that has downhill skis on the bottom of it.  I did this for my setup that is very similar to yours, I can pull 100 pounds through 8" of snow with very little effort.  Side note I wouldn't pull it with a four wheeler, mine slides to easy and wants to hit the back of the wheeler when I try to stop.

      I've got an Eskimo 949I which I love. We occasionally go deep off the trail to isolated lakes and my otter sled is too much like dragging an anchor when we break new trail or if there is deeper snow on the ice. I am in search of a slender long sled that pulls easier and can still accommodate my hub house, auger, buckets, poles etc.   ive looked at gander, FF, cabelas, Joe's and the like without finding exactly what I want. Does anyone know of a sled that fits my description?  Thanks and tight lines.
