Whitakers.com Salmon River Report
Sunday was a cold and very windy day with snow showers in the morning and the temperature was in the teens with the wind chill factor. The lower end of the river had slush ice for most of the day, but it did clear late in the afternoon just in time for the sun to go down. With the weather conditions most anglers came off the water early and most of the anglers we spoke with had a slow day. The upper end of the river between Altmar and Pineville has been producing action in the deeper holes.
