Questions about "the run"....

7 posts in this topic

Hi all,

My brother and I may be in the Silver Bay area this coming weekend, 9-16 and 9-17. We're in desperate need of information, so any input would be greatly appreciated. A few questions;

1. Are the pinks and cohos running this week, say in the Baptism River on north?

2. We have been known to carry float tubes onto remote lakes for some good catch and release fishing. Are there any decent (any species) opportunities in the area?

Thanks greatly,

Ben

Leap frog your way up the North Shore checking the rivers.

Start at the mouths and work to the first barriers. Sucker, Knife, Stewart, Split Rock, Baptism, Cross and Poplar.

Bean and Bear out of Silver Bay are inland trout lakes, check the regs out first.

Thanks for the input. As a rule of thumb, when do the salmon run? Also, do steelhead make a fall run?

Thanks,

Ben

Pray for rain or you will be casting spoons on the shore for loopers/lakers/salmon.

The steelhead really don't make much of a fall run. You will catch some but really the main, and in my opinion most fun time to fish the north shore, is in the spring. Another river to look at for salmon is the cascade although from the sounds of it all the rivers are pretty crappy right now. It has been a tough summer on all the fish after that smolt kill and then the water isn't rising. Lets hope for some rain.

The fish are ready they are there it's just a matter of them getting into the rivers for the mostpart. As for the general rule of thumb...rain is good, lack of rain is no good. Right now is not so good. Should get rain this weekend hopefully enough to flip the switch. You might be in luck if we get enough and just leap frog as stated above and you will find fish. Good luck!
