While it may seem strange to sum, it's fun stuff for us. We are actually going into planning and surveillance mode this weekend at deer camp. Now is the time to finish up projects there and get those cameras out. Gotta know what's hiding in those woods to target accordingly.
I'm not a first buck that walks by guy and will always harvest a mature deer no matter sex but its nice knowing how the gene pool is doing.
During our next trip in September well pattern the movement and October will be here before we realize summers gone.

Have fun times doing fun stuff

Just wondering if any of you guys fish the SR in the summer for trout or the possibility of a summer steely or Atlantic?  I'll be in that neck of the woods and I'm wondering if it's worth throwing in the fly gear.  Thanks...

When I had my place up there Summer fished commonly-Atlantics could often be seen in the pool below  the wire in upper fly and went there quite a bit for a while- only ever had one hit--I suck- but I liked being there.
Smallmouth are kinda sorta common in upper river and hit nightcrawlers - especially on a long drift under a float and they hit bright big flies pretty well. Chubs steal the worms a lot though and some guys use lures for the smallies with good results.
Its Summer so some days a lot of fishing just to fish but some days are pretty good too. Never went way low for them.
OOppsss almost forgot= sometimes in upper river new stocked fish are there and are several inches long - please dont keep them just catch and release.
Fran from the Hatchery and I were near the upper vines one day talking and we watched and a guy  catch and release one after the other on flies

So I did fish the lower fly section for about an hour.  I had one fish rise to my dry but he quickly though better of it.  Looked like a trout of some sort in the 14-15 inch range.  As I was working my way back down the run with a streamer I slipped and when I tried to catch myself my rod hand came down first and I broke my fly reel right at the seat.  It cracked clean off.  I wasn't mad though, other than being a tad disappointed that I wouldn't get to fish the run the rest of the way.  That reel didn't owe me a dime.  It was 23ish years old, went to Alaska 4 times with me, out west, countless steelie streams and trout ventures. I just sort of reminisced once it was broken about all the places that reel went.  It was a nice day to be on the water and the Salmon River is quite the resource, very cool place.  Thanks for the insight R3.

Just for the record, the Lower fly zone is closed for fishing until September.
The upper zone is open now but with only no weight

The lower parking lot area was marked with dates that stated it was open now At least I think I was in the lower fly area.  
The area by the bridge in Altmar was marked as closed.  Ooops...

The bridge in altmar to about 1/4 mile upstream is the lower fly zone and its closed until Sept. Reason is because it has cold water springs that Atlantic salmon will congregate.
The fly area past the hatchery is the upper fly zone which is open now but until August is no additional weight.

Our mission at deer camp was a big success and definitely fun stuff.
We brought some upgrades to our cooking and storage. To be clear, there are no structures such as a cabin. Its camping at a cleared spot in the woods.
The shooting shack project is finished with the windows and braces done. We put out 7 trail cameras. 2 were new solar powered ( battery back up ) wifi. 2 were standard battery wifi and 3 are basic SD card.
I forgot to set the 3 more I have out.
Every camera but 1 took pictures the first night.
He's not a shooter but has potential with the thick beams.
Always nice knowing what's in the neighborhood.
Can't wait until we start seeing the ones we will actively target their movements.

Good choice.
The regulations are many on that river.

Two sport shops in Pulaski each reporting their first King caught in the river this year-photos show beat up looking fish ( low waters -high temps?)
