Hi all! I am a native of the syracuse area now living, and fishing, in minnesota. i think its so cool that there is a new york forum on this site! and that people from new york have found it and used it! anyway, i wanted to share some pics of my uncle and cousins recent catches there in northern new york. they are great fly guys, and someday i will learn!

Hey FishOn, I assume those are Salmon River fish? Nothing better than fresh steel on a flyrod. We get up there a fair amount and love it! That second picture looks like the Barrel hole?

It is indeed the salmon river. I havent been there myself, but i sure hope to someday. alot of people here in minnesota who have never been to northern new york, would never believe that these fish came from there! you know, the entire state of new york is buildings and concrete!! hehe!

Yep, thats deffinatly the "barrel hole". A tough spot to fish as its packed with steelies and usually 2-3 boats and 2-3 dozen yahoos. The loweer end of the "schoolhouse" pool in the far backround is a sweet spot...

Heres a few SR chromers on the flyrod...

Nice fish you got there! Thanks for sharing your pics! I don't fish the river , myself, all trolling on the lake for me,But it is one of my idle "threats" to my wife, when she's gut something to say like"your going deer hunting , again?" "you already shot 5!" My response is "Don't MAKE me start steelhead fishing ! or ELK hunting!"

  • Your Responses - Share & Have Fun :)

    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
