Dark Salmon

The Commander took me out Sunday for an afternoon of salmon fishing on Ontario. Tom launched and we only made out to 200 feet depths when he decided to turn around and wait out storm that was on its way over from the Niagara Penninsula.

We waited out the storm for an hour and then made our second attempt to find fish. Tom set up his program up in 420 ft of water and pointed the boat toward Toronto in the distance.

We hooked up with 1 steelhead, 1 immature salmon , and 1 dark mature salmon about 20 pounds or so.

It was a good day on the water as always with tom. He gets so much joy puting people on fish as much as i do realing them in.

We are getting the itch for some stream fishing over the next month.

It has been a slow summer as far as fishing is concerned. I have been out 0nly a few times bass fishing on lousy east wind days with now luck with the Commander. The commander also took Turk and I out two weeks ago Chinny fishing in Lake Ontario. We got into a few fishing and enjoyed the afternoon.

I just picked up new waders Orvis Pro guide III's on sale plus I had a gift card I received from my friend for standing up in his wedding. I am still hunting for a wading shoes.

I hope every one has had a safe and happy summer and it wont be long before we see some fish in the streams
