Of the many fall runs in the Northeast, the salmon run that takes place in New York is surely a main event. Starting in late August, king salmon, coho, atlantics, brown trout, and steelhead all are on the move. For a fly angler looking to legally catch a king salmon on the swing, the earlier in the season you go and the lower in the river you fish, the greater your chances of success will be. At this time, the salmon are freshest and unburdened by the gauntlet they are about to swim through. For two brief weekends in early fall, we were able to catch a few.
