Salmon River Fish hatchery

The wife and I stopped for a visit to the Salmon River Fish Hatchery in Altmar, NY today.

The river and entrance to the hatchery Fish ladder was full of fish. They say itís one of the largest Salmon runs in recent history on the Salmon River.

You could have walked across the river on the backs of the Salmon and steelheads. If anyone is in that area itís worth visiting, amazing sight.

They started egg take yesterday, inside the building.

From DEC: "The annual salmon egg take will be starting on October 9th at the Salmon River Fish Hatchery, Altmar. It typically begins around 9:30 AM and goes to 12:30 PM, weekdays only."

Yes, we got there too late to watch them strip fish.

Also, Could you walk across the river, or Beaver Dam brook, on the backs of the fish. I've seen the brook loaded like that, but you'd have to wade through all the "sportsmen" to get to the river!

I did not see any sportsman on Beaver Dam Brook, however there were some on the Salmon River. Still not lined up wall to wall like the days of snagging with weighted trebles.
