Searching for Salmon in the Montana Outdoor Weekly Wrap Up
By Matt Schauer

Posted: June 10, 2012

Well, I spent two and half days trying to catch a salmon on the Clearwater River in Idaho. Arlyn Lemer from Lolo and “Salmon” Steve Hellegaard from Missoula came along to also try and catch salmon. There was a lot of fishing, but very little catching. In fact, it took The Guide Shops, Mike Willhamson, to get Arlyn on a salmon Friday morning. Steve and I did not have a single BITE the whole trip. I am heading down again today with Tom Steinbrenner from Missoula. We will be fishing with Bill Scullion from Lolo. Wish us luck we will need it.

Last week, Kamp Cook found a video with killer whales biting a salmon’s tail off after a fisherman hooked it. This week take a look at the marlin that is being reeled in by an angler when a shark bites the marlin in half, all that is left is the head. Watch the video HERE.
