Salmon Season Is Here !

Hi All

Like every year we kick off the Salmon season in the lower river...Timing is about the same every year..I started looking around after a big rain August 21 st. with no bites that a.m...On the 23 rd. I invited friends Russ and Jen out and Jen put a whopping on them and Russ and I did a bunch of long distant releases..So it started about a week ago and has been pretty steady down there..No super duper gang buster days but you can catch/ hook... Salmon and Pike down there for sure...they are lurking...

Had a trip down there August 26th. for a a.m. half day and were 2 for 6..2 to net, 2 to log jams, 2 unbuttoned...not bad action from 7 to 10a.m...Casting lures and flies for Kings, Steelhead, and Trout is a favorite for me...Love the fly fishing but nothing wrong with a lure/ fly chasing, striking fish period !! Fish eat fish world...Big fish meet little fish and CHOMP...

Pulling my 251 Baha Cruiser today and taking it to get winterized..Sad day...But river fishing is good enough to put my time in on the river vs the lake...Had a fun season for 13 weeks on the lake and another season of trolling experience...

I have some good days open Sept.18,19,27,28  for the middle of King Salmon season...Give us a call 231-745-6667 or email  info@redmooselodge.com .We have some great dates open and rooms as well.. Full days are $400.00 , Half  $275.00

Have a great Salmon Season...
