The flies only area is nice if you can put up with the crowds. Tippy Dam has some great fishing. Fish at night and you won't get the crowds. He said him and a friend would routinely hook into 50-100 salmon in a night. You won't land nearly that many but the fish are there. You won't have the crowds at night also.
Hope this helps

Can anyone tell me what type of hooks I should purchase to tie on for the trip.
I had two kings last fall straighten out flies tied on store bought flies.DCM

For hooks and patterns I use mustad 36890's almost 99% of the time. Patterns I use are a variety of hairwings tied in different colors, nothing fancy just skunks and plain ol' chinelle body with squirrel tail and wing in different colors.
The Big M is really a zoo during salmon season so I personaly avoid that river at all cost, I dont get into the fist fights and cops being called to break them up on the river
Heres a article I wrote last year on salmon fishing the PM that might be of intrest to you.
