Hi Gavin,

Yes, that yellow plastic wire (bar coded) is a tag.

Hi Derek,

You fish from the San Francisco Bay area ?

Haven't caught Salmon by trolling in the ocean, but have caught them by vertically jigging dead bait.

Hi Jeen,

The river can get crowded, when the Salmon run is on.

No grizzlies in California. You have to go to Alaska to be in their company :lol:

Hi Michaelaga,

It is a 3 fish limit from July 16 through the last day in February.

The fish migrate from the sea to the river (where they were born) to spawn, and finally die. There is a mix of both hatchery, and wild fish in the river.
Because of a dam, a hatchery is used to make up for the loss of spawning habitat.

great fish flyfisher!

Is that a nine weight rod youre using?

I like to do a bit of flyfishing myself, I was just wondering whether you cast a regular nine or ten wieght fly rod the same way youd cast a five or six weight? Or do you have learn how to Spey cast to use them?

Im guessing that an ordinary casting style would suffive since spey casting probably only works on those huge double handed British salmon rods.

Hi Ali,

I was using an eight weight fly rod, with a integrated shooting-head fly line.

Your casting style has to match the type of fly line, and the rod.

A normal weight forward floating fly line is cast the same way (from a 5 wt to 12 wt). But for shooting heads, you do it in a different way.

Also as you mentioned, double handed spey rods require a different style of casting.
