Updated Fishing Reports - Salmon River, Pulaski Ny

August 24, 2015

Salmon fishing on Lake Ontario has picked up steam! More aggressive King salmon are showing their presence. It is still not on fire but it is improving steadily. Yesterday in 2 trips we had close to 20 bites total landing 13 fish mostly King salmon and a few brown trout. We're only going out a few miles to find them. Our afternoon run was just as good as our am trip so that answers the questions which is better am or pm? I would say right now they are equal.

Salmon fishing on Lake Ontario has been up and down lately. We have been doing ok for a few trips and tough on others. The last few trips kings have been around in decent numbers but they are being stubborn - picking at a few but struggling. So we have been catchong some nice trout to fill the void on the slow days. The numbers of king salmon are increasing daily, their attitudes just needs to change. We still have open afternoons and few weekday morning trips. We also have very nice cabins for lodging with all the amenities for a comfortable stay. Package deals are available with lodging and charters. Stay tuned folks it is gonna get hot very quickly!

PAST FISHING REPORTS

July 21, 2015

Salmon fishing on Eastern Lake Ontario has been getting better. Good size kings are showing up in our case catches daily. We have been fishing 5-6 miles off the Salmon River in 100-140' of water. Attractors/fly combos and spoons have been doing the damage on our charters lately. We have been catching a few lakers, browns and steelheads mixed in with the kings. Lake trout fishing has still been good for charters targeting them off the bottom with cowbells- it's a great plan B for those days salmon are in a funk. Happy to say it has been a couple weeks since we have fished for them. The brown trout are hanging in tighter to shore in 50-70' and are taking smaller spoons off riggers 10-20' off the bottom. We still have dates available for middle August thru late September. We are still offering package deals with lodging and 2 days chartering Call for details- best time is in the evenings.

King salmon are finally starting to trickle into the eastern end of Lake Ontario. We are going out deep to 120+ feet of water, 5-6 miles out of the Salmon River. Lake trout are biting very well in the same areas. Targeting lake trout has kept the action up while waiting for the kings to show. There has been plenty of them to catch too and very large ones at that, 14-18 pound fish have been common. The water temperatures are finally starting to warm up and the fish are responding well. Brown trout are still hanging in tighter to shore 40-60' and a steady pick has been common. We still have plenty of dates over the next few months. We are offering package deals for lodging and trips to save you money- our rates are the most reasonable on this end of Lake Ontario. We have been chartering and guiding Lake Ontario and the Salmon River for 25 years so there is no lack of experience here. You will get your moneys worth with us!
We run our charters and drift boat guide trips full time. Always have always will. No weekend Captains here.
We are offering 2 day charter package deals with 3 nights lodging for very reasonable rates. Feel free to call for more info.

Lake trout fishing has been saving our season so far. They have been the bet for trollers along the eastern shore. Plenty of big lakers have been hitting the deck too! The weather needs to stabilize a bit and the king salmon will be showing up in better numbers gradually thru July. Brown trout are giving us some action further into Mexico Bay - not great but not bad either- same story.
If it stabilizes with some decent weather it will improve as the trout move deeper. Walleye fishing on Oneida Lake has been excellent from all the reports I have been hearing from other Captains fishing there. We have mostly been sticking to the charters on Lake Ontario.
We are offering 2 day charter package deals with 3 nights lodging for very reasonable rates. Feel free to call for more info.

Walleye fishing on the Lake Ontario bays has been decent at times but tough as well at times. The weather has been back and forth causing unstable conditions. When the weather has been stable the walleye seem to cooperate better. Lake trout fishing on Lake Ontario has been excellent-Not much more to say about it then that! King salmon and brown trout have been showing signs of life but sporadically. We have lots of dates for Lake Ontario charters for lake trout, brown trout or king salmon. Take your pick and we will target whatever your looking for. If all else fails we can easily pick up
decent action for lake trout.
Oneida walleye action is awesome from all reports. Its been excellent trolling worm/spinners and jigging with sonar's all during the day.
Lake Ontario walleye trips are still worth while, in my opinion there is still another month of good fishing left on the big lake for big walleye. The cold winter and crummy spring has just delayed the big bite by a few weeks.
I see much better fishing coming soon. We are also offering lodging now so we can get a package deal set up for you. The more charters and nights booked for lodging the better our deals will be. Our rates are very reasonable already but we can make it even better for June and July especially for weekday trips. Give us a call and get some details- We started in 1990 and this is our 25th year in business guiding the Salmon River and chartering Lake Ontario- We certainly have the experience to get the fish where ever they swim.

Steelhead fishing on the Salmon River has been up and down a lot lately. We get a few good days going then we struggle for a day. Water levels are up and that is helping some. There is a ton of steelheads in the hatchery waiting to drop back so the rest of the season is likely to improve. Brown trout fishing on the Lake Ontario is on fire- slow trolling stick baits along the shallow shoreline is producing good catches of small to average size fish. There are a few bigger ones mixed in too but plenty of average ones.
The weather has improved dramatically and the fishing should follow suit.

Steelhead fishing on the Salmon River has been tough lately. The cold snowy winter has made conditions less then ideal. The good news is spring is coming in quick and conditions are improving. Each day we seem to get a little better action then the previous day. The weather has been a lot nicer and that's a bonus!
Keep checking out Facebook page for more frequent updates.
We still have guides available for spring steelhead fishing.
Walleye trips are booking up quick, if you want to get into some good eating fish get your May or June walleye trip booked now!

Steelhead fishing on the Salmon River has been just ok lately. Low water 285 cfs and very cold temperatures have made for tough conditions for fishing. The shelf ice, anchor ice and slush are really hampering our efforts.
Most days we have been confined to the upper river to avoid these extremes, on top of all that there is plenty of other anglers trying to find fishable waters as well. So the weekday trips have been much more successful then the weekends. Getting into a few decent spot has been making all the difference in the world.
Either call - email or message us on Facebook.
