big c is very cool

atlantic salmon

Recommended Posts

Hi I don't really like fly fishing at all but in the summer I always go to Maine and there are Atlantic Salmon. The guy who owns the bait store says the only way I can catch one is to use a fly fishing rod. Does any one have any other way to catch one maybe by using a jig, topwater, or crankbait. Any help would be greatly appreciated because I really wanna land one of those things this summer.

Thanks,

Corey

The guy is full of crap! He probably wants you to buy a fly fishing outfit from him!

Try spoons like the Little Cleo (I dont even know if they make those anymore) or Abu Garcia Toby or any other metal spoon. Silver seems to work best. You can also try bigger Mepps spinners, size 3 or 4.

Hope that helps.

Most Atlantis Salmon rivers are fly fishing only. I was part of the group that got our MNR into re-establishing the Atlantic salmon in Lake Ontario.

The truth about them is any flashy bait will just clean a river out. These fish are as stupid as stumps around cleo's or inline spinners.

They are so stupid for flashy, tinsel flys are baned in most areas.

They are a blast to catch.
