WB - Fly Fishing Altmar King Salmon, Salmon River, NY - September '17

Video of Michael Evanko and his girlfriend fly fishing the Upper Fly Zone on the Salmon River near Altmar, New York. A decent run of salmon entered the river in mid-September which broke a three year streak of poor early run activity. These fish moved through the river system quickly and were in the Pineville and Altmar areas within three to four days. The water was at 500CFS during the filming of this video. Although there were fish, there were not large numbers and hook-ups were limited. This fish was caught on an egg sucking leech. All video was shot on September 16, 2017.
