    Default Salmon on the Deshka

    I heard the pinks, the chums and maybe some silvers are passing the weir on the Deshka River. Can anybody confirm this? Would like to head there and wet a line... thanx... "fishon"

    64 pinks

    im tuned into this also. does it get as packed with fished as willow does? i remember we couldn't keep the pinks and chums and occastional silver off the line every 5 casts. could save the launch fee and just fish willow again but if it does get like that i'd go down there for more space
    hook, line, sinker, done.

    Most of the time you wont get many chums but the pinks get in there good and also the silvers on a good year. Not even close as many people fish it for silver as they do kings when the silvers get in its not that hard to get limits
