Salmon on the Shetucket River!




Another nice fall day on the Shetucket River in eastern CT.  With the recent stocking of 250 excess broodstock Atlantic Salmon by the CTDEEP, they're spread out from the Scotland Dam downstream. The number of fish are down sharply from years past and it takes some work to find the best holding water.

WE JUST RECEIVED NEWS THAT 70 ADDITIONAL SALMON 6 LB. AND ABOVE,  WERE STOCKED ON 11/14.

We were able to take 3 nice 5 lb. class fish on this cool day.  A week earlier our guests Dave and Ralph teamed up to take another nice salmon from a perfect holding spot.


Everett with a nice one!


We had several follows and bumps on other salmon that showed themselves.  Mickey Finn streamers have been successful, but traditional small salmon flies, with a jungle cock eye and some yellow/blue resulted in both the above fish.

Dave had several misses on the fish above and turned over his spot to Ralph while making a fly change.  Ralph on in relief, hooked up for a true TEAM EFFORT...nice job guys, we were happy to get you in the right spot after a slow morning.

It's never too late...we can help you get to the right holding spots with the right patterns...then it's up to you!

DRAG FREE!
