I wake up this morning checking reports and gauges and exactly what I know to be true is happening. For safety sake I checked myself and held the post till today.
During March, as we have seen over the last week or so, the steelhead rivers of New York State often swell with a pre-spring increase in flow. Most anglers shy away from the big rivers and stay home.
This is a big mistake. Now before you say how hard it is to fish on the Salmon River with flows in Pineville at 2000cfs and above, please consider the following.
Creek Steel in March is upon us now. Don't spend a lot of time in one place and take advantage of this wonderful spate fishery. You will be back on the SR and the crowds soon enough during early April for drop back season.
