Unethical Practices
Salmon River
Water Temp: 62ºF     Flow: 100 cfs

I don't know what Salmon fishing does to people, but it seems the sight of large fish in shallow water causes anglers to lose control of themselves.

The low river flow and continued stream of fresh kings and cohos has caused quite the lifting-snagging-lining craze recently. The low water makes seeing the fish easier and groups them in tighter pods. Of course, lining these fish becomes easier. "Anglers" are chasing fish in shallow water, lifting them in clear pools, and keeping fish illegally caught.

While River Run Troutfitters promotes catch and release fishing, we understand the need/desire to keep your catch. Let's at the very least, be ethical in our fishing practices, so that the fish we kept are the ones you caught legally, not snagged.

If you fish with us, we guarantee you will CATCH a fish, the right way. Want to learn how to actually fish for salmon? Give us a call, (518) 527-7104. We'll teach you how to ethically fish for migrating chinook, coho, steelhead, and brown trout.
