      I fish the Clinton River area, my best luck is always with a spawn sack with 3-5 eggs, but as for lures, twitching a floating rapala or using the berkley trout dough type stuff is always productive too.

        Salmon River, Pulaski, NY, I use pink shrimp scented worms, trout beads, others swear by floating egg sacks (color pref vary)

              Here in NW Indiana, the Salmon are running upstream and they are hitting on nightcrawlers. I have seen one Salmon that was over 3 feet long, a Chinook Salmon, he was skittish every time I threw my nightcrawler ahead of him. At best, he came a few inches from it on one pass, yet failed to accept my offering. At the very least, I caught a 15-pounder on a nightcrawler. So come on down to Indiana and experience the thrill of battling a Salmon!

                  on the salmon river near pulaski and Altmar, My favorite approach is def a blue fox spinner or a floating jointed Rapala. The way I fish it is by standing in the shallows above a deep fast run. I'll throw my plug or spinner to the back of the run and let it sit in the current, slowly swinging it from side to side and slowly gaining back a little bit of line at a time. This will present the lure for the maximum amount of time and usually piss off a few fish. I was fishing this method yesterday in two different spots and I hooked multiple fish. Unfortunately my landing percentage was 2 for 6. Remember though that any weighted spinner or spoon cannot have more than one barb because trebles are illegal on the Salmon River.

                    For lures I would have to say flies. Stonefly or a nymph will do. On a little muddier waters I would do a steamer. As for bait can't beat a egg sack. On a tuff day sometimes a single egg with a minnow.
