    Salmon fishing tips.

    I'm a newbie at this salmon fishing stuff. I went up to the pulaski with very little luck. I did manage to hook up with a salmon but was absolutely shocked by it and unfortunately lost it. My set up is a 8.5' pole, 12lb test, and a simple split shot sinker with a bright colored fly.

    My questions is... what's the technique? What am I missing here because everyone around me was hooking up and I felt embarrassed. I'm quite seasoned when it comes to our hatchery trout, but this salmon fishing is more challenging than it looks.

    Did you notice the guys that were catching, were getting a bite on every drift? Ripping there rod tip up. That's how you get them to bite, whether they like it or not. It is a real art. Sometimes they bite with their tails, those you have to let go.

    It's exactly what I noticed. Fins and tails were doing the most biting.

    Fun place to fish, but yes it can be challenging . I havent fished up there in years and also with little luck but my buddies go back year after year and have dialed in pretty good on spots and techniques for success .. maybe hire a guide next time to give you some pointers. I want to go back up for the fall brown trout season someday !

    Be there a day before the fishing reports. Just go, have fun. Try to go during the week, weekends get real busy.
