This year the causeway gates were opened and as i hoped the tributaries would thrive as they did the year they drained the lake for upgrading the water sewer lines. I havent had this kind of fishing here since my father an i fished for salmon on the peti . I managed to hook into some hugh trout in late may, early june(sea run) biggest being 16inch and deep/thickest i've ever caught. All trout i caught where i fished were sea run and big ten inch or more. I hope this is just the start of things to return to the peti.

just wondering if anyone else had tried with similar result?

I've fished around Salisbury for the past cpl of days and the pool at the vridge into town is full of salmon par...a good sign for the future. ... only trout caught and released was about 6 inches or so...
GOOD NEWS IN THE NEWSPAPER... salmon and shad being caught in the fish trap this year....let's all keep our fingers crossed on the return of both species.

Good sign , it's unfortunate however that narrow - minded anglers were allegedly keeping black salmon kelts that were stocked in last fall to spawn as they exited the river this spring. Alot of hard work to save a river can be ruined by a couple of ####holes.

That's great to hear the Peti is making a comeback. We need all the healthy rivers we can get. Hopefully the salmon are able to get re-established without coming under too much pressure. Also, if anglers are catching and releasing those nice 16" trout it will mean there are lots of healthy breeders to keep the population strong. I was very curious to know what the results of opening the gates would be. Thanks for sharing the good news!

It would be incredible for this River to re-establish itself as a salmon, shad and trout destination. Now that they have opened the Dam at the causeway it will only get better and better with more and more species coming in... Stripers, salmon, shad and brookies would be fantastic to get into and so close to home..
