Its nothing personal dave. Like I said, I can understand your thirst for knowledge; we were all there sometime, well I was anyway.

There are other ways to word your post and titles without giving out the specific spot. We will know what you mean, and we would not mind helping you out.

Its just a little advice for next time, and it really is in the forum rules.

Hope you have a good day out next time you're down there.

I dont think that river is much of a secret, ive seen that parking lot full at 7 am on tuesday.

As far as migration they make it up to the base of the falls.



I agree it is no secret. 

There was a time when we would get nice quiet days down there. Not anymore. The last couple years have been ridiculous there.

And its getting worse because of things like this.

As much as I understand your thirst for knowledge here, posting specific spots on a public forum just destroys it. It is stated in the forum rules.


Some of your questions have already been answered.

Fish do spawn there, but the conditions are not the most ideal for it.

High oxygen levels help contribute to the healthy fishery, and also the fish cant go up much further (there's an obstruction a little way up).

I use the improved clinch as well most times. My knots never fail anymore; I had lots of practice learning to tie it properly.

However my line breaks due to different factors. When I was on the river a few weeks ago, I was using 6 pound line and I broke off on an 8 pound rainbow, but afterward I landed a 25 pound salmon no problem.

Gotta keep checking for those nicks and abrasions.
