Salmon River Morning Trip

Salmon River, CT
4/18/2010

Headed out to the Salmon River for only the second time this year! Baby Dave's taking up my time these days. Water level was rediculously high from rain storm the night before, so I only caught one brookie. Still nice to get out on the water.

McCarthy, AK
Fred, Nate, Ford, and myself took a trip out to Alaska to hike, backpack, and fish Wrangel St. Elias National Park and Denali National Park. The trip started with flying into Anchorage, AK. We then drove to McCarthy where we picked up a bush plane to drop us into Tebay Lakes in Wrangel St. Elias. Spent 5 days catching tons of Rainbows in and around the lakes. After Tebay Lakes, we took the Denali Highway up to Denali National Park. Fished the creeks and streams along Denali Hwy for Graylings and Rainbows. Then spent the last days in Denali National Park for wildlife viewing.

Went to Dooley Pond to try out the new canoe for the first time. The wind continued to push us to the northern end of the pond so we ended up paddling probably more then fishing. Kristen caught a Yellow Perch and I got a Black Crappie.

James River, Charlottesville VA

Went on a guided float down the James River in Charlottesville with Brian from Mossy Creek Fly Fishing (http://www.mossycreekflyfishing.com). Excellent guide with a lot of experience fishing the James and Shenandoah rivers. I think we caught well over 50 smallmouth bass while there. Highly recommend these guys for guided tours and to learn new fly fishing techniques.

Headed over to Salmon River to do a little fly fishing. Water was very low and nobody was on the river. Fished from about 5-7PM. Fish started biting around 6 and I was able to catch a nice sized rainbow on a yellow sally (appx size 14). In between fishing decide to take some pictures and try different settings on my camera.

Gloucester, MA

This past month I've been working on a site for the City of Gloucester Tourism Department, so I decided to add a few pictures from my trip up there the other day. Unfortunately I had to work late and did not have time to go fishing, but the town is definately a hotspot for shoreline fishing. I will be heading back there shortly on one of my weekends off to do some surf casting and possibly schedule a charter fishing trip. There are so many things to do in the town, that you can easily make a long weekend out of the trip. The tourism website should be up in the next week, so I'll be sure to send everyone the URL.

Great Falls, VA

Not sure how the fishing is here, but still worth checking out for the view of the falls. Apparently fishing is allowed here, but you are not allowed to enter the water at any time. I would call the Great Falls Park Service for more details on the fishing. Might need to head up or down stream a ways before you find good fishing holes. I read up that common fish in here include catfish, bass, freshwater eel and American shad.

This trip is from way back when I was a Junior in college (2003). I figured it would be a good example of how you can use the site to post your fishing trips. We went to Lake Shenandoah several times. Located less than 5 minutes from JMU.
