Attn the road in Lincoln Park is all toron up the project might be done late this year. I saw a car get its oil pan damaged on one of the ruts in the road. If you have to fish park in the parking lot this should save your vehicle from expensive repairs!

Nothing in the river that I saw. Looked from Lincoln Park up through the dam for any movement and saw none.

Tehbassmaster if your looking to fish salmon, spawn is a great way but you need to have real spawn to use. Also I don't know anything about fishing spawn in the river, I only use flys in the river and I could definitely explain that if you want but I do sometimes fish the harbor with spawn. I try to target the Browns n rainbows so I use quarter sized sacs up high in the water. Kings will be more by the bottom and the best way to get then is using a little bit bigger glob of skain. Then I use 8lb fluorocarbon leader with same test p line , size 6 or 8 egg hook, a few staggered small split shots and a steelhead float about 3-4 feet up. From personal experience you are better off fishing the harbor with spawn then the river, in the fall most trout don't enter the river they are in the harbor.

Hi! Im a bass fisherman and want to get into salmon/trout fishing but dont have a boat so the root is a great place for me! I have a few question! 1. when do the Trout/Salmon start to run and when is fishing the best? 2. Are Spawn sacs the best to fish with?


Thanks!

The run really doesn't depend on water levels and water temp all that much. The big thing is it's just not late enough. If there is a big rain half way through September you'll see some fish show up but the heat of the roots King run is beginning of October.

Are there any fish coming in yet? If not, what water level and temp is needed to start the run?
