Default Land Locked Salmon

Took a trip upstate NY, run has just started, but I did fairly good. Rusty Brown Gold Ribbed Hares Ear Flies size 8 was the bait of choice. Water still fairly warm, a few more weeks it should break open. Hooked 10 landed 4, biggest 28", will be back up late Oct or early Nov, Lake George NY

Nice Gypsy I was up 2 weeks ag
Did more relaxing than fishing. I didn't really see much going on in that spot. This cold spell should get things going good luck on your return trip

I am not a biologist or anything, but it looks like a salmon to me. Sometimes it can be hard to tell the difference between brown trout and land locked atlantic salmon. Nice fish!

Look at the kype on that thing! Looks like it swam headlong into a wall!

Great catch, bet it fought like hell on the fly rod.

They are Landlocked, Lard the first one I hooked came out of the water about 4' proceeded to jump 4 more times, they do fight. I hooked a large female, watched her take the fly, set the hook all I could do was hang on, took me about 50 yards straight out in seconds, couldn't turn her, she got away. Was using a 5.5 fluorocarbon leader. I do put in the time, fish all day, they come in to spawn, have been told they won't reproduce, you see many won't hit anything then all the sudden they turn on. And they will hit bait, NO snagging, best fighting fish I ever caught. Andy I was standing on the sidewalk, fishing the main lake. Wednesday just before dark my wife was fishing and they were jumping out of the water all over, she couldn't believe it, my son had a nice one but the net man (me) missed and it shot under a dock, that was that
