What do people do with those moldy, dying salmon anyway? They're good for nothing but fertilizer or animal feed

I was in Shoto with my buddy probably 20 years ago by the dam.

I guess some things never change. Same story back then.

Fish are in the rivers and biting if you get away from the crowds and get in quiet areas, dirty water means bigger skein and beads.  Cold weather and rain will only help.  It's hard to fish near any of the dams with the amount of snaggers or flossers.  Had multiple people hooking up non stop and yanking there line.  They kept getting frustrated and yelling fish off, hmm I wonder why, maybe because you are flossing them and snagging.  Some of the guys down there truly think these 4 year old dying salmon are coming up and biting your plain hook, sinker and piece of foam. They are just swimming into your line.  What a joke.  On a brighter note if you get a long ways away from the dam they still will bite egg sacs and beads but the dam is flat out ridiculous with how many snaggers/flossers there are.  Saw a guy keep a nice brown at mishicot the hook was on the side of the face from him setting the hook super hard every time he saw his line move.  Keep it classy hillbillies

Fished the smaller Shoto dam, Saturday and Sunday. Water looked like chocolate milk and moving quite fast. You cannot see them in there but they're there. Only time you actually see them is when they breech the surface. There was more fish activity on Sunday because of rain I assume. Lots of people fishing on shore and wading. If you want a place by the dam get there early. 

Saturday I had one hit on spawn sac but I got too excited and must have yanked it out. I did not get anything on cranks or spoons. Did not try flies. 

I had no bites on Sunday. Friend with me on Sunday caught two, both female on a very small custom spoon and I mean Swedish pimple small.

Both dams got a lot of muddy water cranking over them. Today somebody was up top on the little dam opening up the divert/bypass valve allowing lots more water to go around the small dam.
