Our designation is the Salmon River in upstate New York with Les Resseguie, Biologist and expert fly angler for New York State, Department of Environmental Conservation.  Managed as a trophy fishery, the Salmon River is a top destination for Chinook, Coho, and Steelhead.  With two world records, this river provides tremendous opportunities for anglers looking to ty into that fish of a lifetime.  Les breaks down the river with where to fish, how to fish, and even his own fly patterns.  Bonus: why spey casting is a great way to target these fish.
