Conditions are good this week for swinging flies on the Salmon River. Water temperature 55 degrees and the steelhead are very aggressive! This 3" Black/olive cut-shank with #4 Octopus stinger hook got smashed by 4 fish today. Reel screaming runs and high twisting leaps!

Using a medium MOW tip 2.5' sink and a 5 ft. tippet of 12 lb. test Maxima ultragreen in the 350cfs flow. Added a small black cone head on the tippet in front of the fly to gain a little depth on the swing.

Out of the 4 fish hooked I was only able to land these two females.
