This year was an incredible salmon run on the Salmon River, one for the books! This year in Pulaski NY was definitely one I will never forget! After 3 straight days of angling my arms and body were literally sore from fighting the mighty salmon. This fish is not an easy contender to fight and I would recommend a 10″ 8 or 9 weight for the fight. These monsters can easily reach 30+ lbs!! It is said that 3 years prior to this record salmon run was prime spawning conditions making this an outstanding year and a record year for salmon. You can still catch them now, the run is continuing but has definitely slowed. Go get them! It is a fight that can not be explained until you have experienced it.
