Peters Russian May Salmon 2016
Some Russian Salmon caught mid May
Warm water (13C, not the usual 5C), clear blue sky and bright sunshine for most of the week reduced our catch by 50% - but it was still fantastic.
Most of the fish were running fast up the centre of the 200m wide river – way out of reach of casting – except for a few places where we could wade some central gravel bars.
