I spent a day traveling the Salmon River and Salmon Reservoir in New York State. Using dozens of photos, drawings, and a water color sketch, I created this painting. The fishermen were real and their activities were used just as photoghraphed. This waterway provides world class fishinig, Salmon are well stocked and managed by New York State authorities. Fishermen travel from all over the world to the "Autumn Salmon Run". Take a look at the pictures of the "lunckers" on a google search.
