Salmon Run – Finnmark

November 21, 2014

written by TheRockyRiver.com staff

In Finnmark, “the salmon run” does not refer to the fish running upstream. Rather, it references the angler having to sprint downstream to chase after the toad on his or her line.

The Rocky River Fishing Report for Sunday, November 23, 2014

CLARITY: clear
FLOW: low
THROW: spawn/egg pattern, woolly buggers, streamers/minnows/spoons
GRAPHS: See real-time USGS water graphs here!
NOTES: (Updated 9:55 am) The Rocky River is half-iced and slush is a problem where there is open water, but if you can find a way to manage it, the fish are there. We're looking at a real warm up by the weekend which is going to bring rain and combined with melting snow, should bump the river up significantly. Many anglers have reported success over the past week with the old reliables- drifting eggs or tipped, black jigs (or small woolly buggers).

Mark C. reports: (Nov 21) "Hey guys, the 'Hoga is flowing good. Not many fishing being caught but water is nice. Was there yesterday. FYI."

Mark W. reports: (Nov 19) "Went today... the slush making it unfishable."

Zachery K. reports: (Nov 18) "Went out this morning and braced the cold. One hooked up but a chunk of ice got the best of me. It was barley fishable the river is pretty well iced over after last night's cold, even watched an ice jam break free. Pretty cool sight."
