Hi Italo, Do you know of any techniques for catching shallow water salmon in the rivers that are likely spooked? Thanks

Hi Matthew, very difficult to make spooked fish strike or feed. It’s better to fish pools/runs early before salmon are spooked and make casts from further back so they don’t see you with either salmon eggs or lures like the Jointed Rapala in the fluorescent orange color. Try to cast up-stream from the fish and let your bait/lure pass in front of them in a natural manner. Never cast right on top of them, that will spook them also.
