15 & 16Oct05 - Greg Boyd, Richard (Twitch) Walp and I fished Pulaski, NY this weekend.  We covered the upper portion of the Salmon River, including side channels, and Sandy Creek.  Flow was high on the Salmon River at 2000 CFS.  Douglaston was closed due to the high flows.  Everyone landed fish except myself.  Landing was challenging with the increased flow.  Once a salmon hit a seam, more often than not it was down to the next pool or two!  Kings were predominant, however hookup numbers were low and sporadic.  Nearly all the kings I saw (caught and in the water) were in the process of decay.  Most Kings were hens.  Greg managed to hook two Cohos, but landed only one.  One Steelhead was spotted, but it was beat-up and was drifting back. No one fly was hot, but black and purple were the preferred colors tied as Estaz Eggs or Sparkle Chenille Comets.  Fishing pressure was moderate.  Weather conditions were overcast and slightly cool, but turned to drizzle, windy and cold mid-day Sunday.  Winds gusted to 33 mph.

02Oct05 - Mark Czekaj and I drifted the Delaware River from Bulls Island to Lambertville.  It was approximately a seven-mile drift which took us 5.5 hours, from 9 AM to 2:30 PM.  I caught 4 smallmouth bass and 2 bluegills; Mark was less fortunate.  The fish were caught using an orange Paddler and a Hellgramaniac.  All in all, fishing was very slow.  The bass were small and measured up to 10 inches, however I did spook a half dozen bass between 15 and 20 inches.  Most bass were in the shallows (< 3 feet).  The water was crystal clear and afforded viewing to the bottom all along the river.  Channel cats appeared to be in large enough numbers that had we drifted with bait we probably could've caught a few.  The cats looked as if they'd weigh three to five pounds.  There were a good number of suckers and a few large carp.  Surface activity was non-existent even though a few tricos were drifting in the current.  It's amazing for the amount of water we covered and how clear things were that we didn't see more fish.
