Does anyone have any pointers on fishing the saluda river. i have been fishing it a little over a season now and while talking to alot of people, and just like in this forum opinions vary as greatly as the days of the week. I've always had my best luck at the base of a dam 100yds or so D.R. I have never found one thing that seems to work with any reliability. i have used baits that range from raw shrimp to dog food to artificial everything, the shrimp and dog food seems to do it most often.yet the biggest i have caught on the river is probably 5lbs. on to the point of this thread i would like any tips anyone would be willing to give about lure/bait, is the fish i've been cathcing as big as it gets on the river, is it better to fish above or below the dams, etc, etc. sorry about the complete mess i've just wrote but this is the first time i have posted on one of these forums. in case i haven't said i am fishing several dams in the piedmont area and i have several spots that take some time to walk to but i would rather take the hike than try and compete for a spot from other people.
