Todd’s Anticipation of what the Steelhead day would bring?
FISH ON and ON
Todd’s Biggest was this 16 lb. Fatty Salmon River Steelhead!
The Steelhead rewards were many! Congrats Todd!
Anton was my 1 fly fishing guest on the drift boat today fishing for Steelhead on the Salmon River.
It wasn’t long before Anton had his first fly fish Steelhead on for the day off the drift boat. We decided to get out of the drift boat and work this productive Salmon River fly fishing spot 5-6 feet at a time. Working our 30 foot window of fishing opportunity. We picked away at the Steelhead. I watched Anton’s fly fishing presentation thru out the day and suggested a few reminders and tips.
Every time I would say, Try this, then like magic, “FISH ON” – We both would chuckle. 🙂
At one point we were hitting Steelhead on almost every drift. WOW!

Not easy to do, but FUN fishing to try!
Sorry, your Salmon River WORLD RECORD TROPHY Suckers don’t count. 😉
Jeff also would have had a new line class record for this 22 pd. Salmon River Coho Salmon. (average 8 to 12 lb’s.) But didn’t have his I.G.F.A. hand book with him to know it qualified.
There is no HO like a Coho 😉

TIPS: What helps to cause a BIG RUN of Steelhead or Salmon?
This might help you plan your Salmon River Steelhead Salmon fishing drift boat guide trip.
What’s the very-very best way to keep your rod from EXPLODING! When fighting and doing battle with a BIG Salmon or Steelhead?
Im glad you asked, Just hand me your rod. 😉
((Great, after my sarcastic joke….. now I feel obligated to write the below for you.))
TOP 3 WAY’S to avoid exploding your rod. On any fish, of any BIG Salmon or Steelhead size and weight.
I’m talking from Salmon River Steelhead Salmon fishing experience folks. 😉
#1 Rule – Rods will easily explode on you. When you put your hand ABOVE the cork (hand grip) for extra leverage on rod blank. Sure, on lil trout you measure by the inch, it’s never broken. But, how about a 30 plus pound Salmon River King Salmon. Even a 10 pound Salmon River Steelhead will cause your rod to break – explode if it’s mishandled by you.
Don’t blame the manufacture, its your fault! These fish are equal opportunity rod breakers. And don’t care how much or how lil you spent on your rod. Rods are meant to be flexed fully. So by placing your hand above the cork, it isn’t and it will EXPLODE!
2. Check your ferrals thru out the day. (A ferrel is where the pieces of your rod join together.) No matter the price you pay for your rod, they do come loose thru out the day. By checking them every few hour’s you should be ok.
If your ferrules are loose. And your rod is doubled over on a BIG Salmon or Steelhead, it will break Every time.
3. Remember when your rod fell off the roof of your car? Or, got a nick in it from a split shot or lead eyes on your streamer? Even if you do all of the above, that nick, is your weakest link. I will guarantee you. That that is where it will break when your rod is doubled over on a Salmon or Steelhead!
When you drop your grandmas finest china on the floor, it breaks. Her china was not made to be dropped on the floor. Your fishing rod is no different.
If you remember that your fishing rod is similar to your grandma’s finest china. And follow rules #1 and #2, you’ll be ok. (Many anglers bring 2 rods when Salmon or Steelhead fishing on the Salmon River.)

Salmon River Steelhead Salmon Fishing Guide Reports.
Fisherman loses 4 front teeth while doing Battle with a MONSTER King Salmon while fishing on the Salmon River NY.
(Before and after his Dental Surgery)
He lost all four of his front teeth as a result of a King Salmon fishing related accident. In October 2014 on the Salmon River.
When he was fishing the Salmon River the water level was way up. And had several heavy split shot sinkers on his line to get his bait down.
He hooked a “HUMONGOUS” King salmon. As he reeled in the Salmon and got it close to shore. Rodriguez’s line snapped and the sinkers on the line flew at his face. Hitting him squarely in the mouth.
“It completely knocked me out!” he said in an interview last year. “I fell in the water and all I remember was this old guy dragging me to land. If it hadn’t been for that old guy, “I would have been dead that day!”
He tried to get used to having no front teeth, but suffered silently, said his wife, Tracy. He was reluctant to smile.
Salmon River NY Trophy Steelhead Fishing Testimonial:
HELLO RANDY I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for an incredible day of fishing. I have fished with you twice and I have hooked a total of 19 steelhead. I know people who have been fishing the Salmon River in Pulaski NY for five years. And haven’t hooked that many Steelhead. As I was driving home I was laughing, the Salmon River was at 1200cfs. The weather was bad, and the Steelhead fishing had been slow for five days. Still I had the best fishing day of my life.
As a registered Maine guide and a person who has fished all over the world. I have never met anyone who works as hard to get fish as you do. Anyone who is thinking about fishing the “Salmon River.” Should book a Drift Boat Guide trip with you. If the dates aren’t available they should change there plans. To get an open date, Its the closest you can get to a sure thing in Steelhead fishing. Thanks again! I’ll see you next March and hope the river is high and the weather is bad. Capt. William Griffin
