As anglers arrived to try their hand at landing King and Coho salmon in the Salmon River’s Lower Fly Zone, they were greeted with a sign from the New York DEC stating that the fly fishing only zone would be closed until Oct. 31, to ensure the hatchery hits its quota of recovered Pacific Salmon eggs. Even more recently, in a DEC press release, the state confirmed that the closure would remain in effect “until further notice.”
This isn’t the first time the river has dealt with lower dam outflows, in 2007, 2012, and 2016, the zones were closed for similar reasons, according to Shane Muckey.
