October 14th Fall Field Campaign

FFP update,

The Fall field campaign closed out the mid-October session in NY with some spectacular Chinook salmon, Coho salmon, Steelhead, and Brown trout.  Katie managed to land the fish of the campaign thus far with a 31” x 20” 14+ Lb. Brown trout that was probably the most impressive trout I’ve ever seen.

The weather was unbelievably warm (sunny and in the 70’s) with virtually no wind for four consecutive days.

The Campaign shifts to Bozeman Montana beginning on October 23rd as we hunt the migratory fish in the upper Madison river.
