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!"

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
