Salt river? Green water?   

Where'd y'all used to put in at? 

Indian something or other, it’s the ramp just east of Hwy 40/61 just past the New London exit.

Chinook (King) Salmon:

I hooked one of these on an egg-sucking leech pattern in a small pool above a broken lowhead dam.  It charged downstream over the dam, and just kept going, through some logs, sticks, around a creek corner, etc.  I chased it downstream, slipping on algae-covered riprap and rocks, dunking my rod & reel under the logs and sticks to get to the other side...I was scraped up and bloodied, but finally caught up to the fish and landed it.  I returned to the pool.  Next cast, another salmon did the exact same thing...went over the dam...I was worn out.  I decided not to chase the fish, and just gave it a bunch of slack line.  Wouldn't you know?  The fish turned around and swam right back up into the pool, and I landed it without all the drama!
