I plan to test Black Hole freshwater rods for salmon or steelhead fishing on a drift boat in Salmon River or other rivers in Upstate NY in two weeks.
Any member knows a good drift boa guide there ?
Thanks in advance.

Don't have a clue but your question brings back memories of trout fishing in Montana from a drift boat. I need to do that next spring.

Thanks for info.
I used to drive alone to fish salmon in Salmon river, NY, but I gave up fishing there after I saw two guys engaged in fistfight for a spot about 25 years ago.

Isn't he the same Bob Storc who has a charter business out of Montauk, NY ?
If so, I fished with him for striped bass about 25 - 30 years ago. Striped bass were scarce then.

I found the water level is too low for drift boat fishing.
I tried to get the info from several operations, but they don't tell the truth. They just say they catch lots of salmon.
Instead, I decided to fish in Douglaston Salmon Run on Sept 30. You have to pay $45 for a pass to fish DSR, but it is worth as they limit to 350 fishermen a day. I tried to stay at a lodge in the DSR, but all are sold out.

Wow, looks very crowded (and warm!). Reminds me of opening day for Ayu (sweetfish, Plecoglossus altivelis) in Japan. Have a great time in NY. Looking forward to more reports later on.

Ayu fishing is pretty popular in Korea too.

I am going to fish in Duglaston Salmon Run tomorrow. I hope I can catch a few salmon for pictures. :)

.
I fished privately owned Douglaston Salmon Run which is two and a half miles at the lower end of the river. I decided to fish Flat which is closest to the parking lot because there were lots of salmon there and the bottom of the river was very slippery the the area was pretty crowded.
I started fishing around 10:00 am and ended by 2:00 pm. My mission was accomplished to test Black Hole inshore Magic Eye and Hyper rod with salmon during four hour fishing.

DSR accept only 360 fishermen a day. The pass cost $45 a day, but it is worth.

Magic Eye P782S (length: 2.34 m)

I also brought a heavier Magic Eye rod, but I decided to use lighter P782S after observing many fly fishermen use light fly rod for salmon without any problem.
I fought several king salmon in 20 - 25 lb range with the rod, but I couldn't land them. I didn't bring a landing net because the purpose of the trip is test the rod and I didn't want to keep them.

It was so much fun to fight big salmon with a soft and light rod.

Hyper BH713S-MH (length: 7'1" line rating: 8 - 16 lb)


the action of this Hyper rod is very similar to original GLoomis rod. It is very light and sensitive, stiff with fast action.
