Updated Fishing Reports - Salmon River, Pulaski Ny

March 13, 2015

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!
Thanks,

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.

Yes! We do fish the Salmon River for steelheads all winter on any day you want to try we will go and try. We won't cancel you for weather but if you don't think you can handle it we can try to reschedule but we won't cancel your trip if you decide to try! Yesterday we went out in -10degrees at a 9am start and got into some really good fish despite cold conditions. Yes you'll need to be set up right with cold weather clothing but our boats are heated and the heaters do help. Anyways our beloved Salmon River is fishing well in 750cfs.

Steelhead fishing on the Salmon River has been up and down lately- We have had some really good days mixed in with just ok days. Utilizing the drift boat and covering a lot of water to find hot fish has helped our production. Water levels have been great ranging from a big 500cfs for a few weeks to 1500cfs now.
Let's hope this holds out for a few weeks and the mother load comes in for Christmas!
We have new cabins for accommodations and plenty of availability though out the winter.

Steelhead fishing on the Salmon River has been ok. We have had some tough days lately with just so-so action.
Water levels have finally increased to 750cfs and we have seen a gradual increase in action over the last few days. Certainly not on fire but more steelheads seem to be cooperating with increasing flows. We have guides and lodging available for the rest of the year and of course through winter and spring of 2015. Our new cabins have been a BIG hit with our customers so far - book a night and I bet you will become a regular with us.
Our steelhead rates are very reasonable for the lodging and for guided drift boat trips. Thanks for checking us out!
If your looking for that perfect gift for the fisher person in your life we offer gift certificates which make great Christmas gifts!!

Salmon have begun to fade out of the Salmon River. Making way for the fresh chrome steelheads. After chasing kings for the last 5 months I am so ready for steelhead! But looking back salmon fishing was much better this summer on Lake Ontario then it was on the Salmon River this fall- it has been a tough river season for king salmon fishing. But into steelhead season we go! We been watching floats drop for a week now. It has been steady fishing-
Not crazy good but decent enough to make everyone happy. And know one is happier then I am! Our schedule is very tight the next month but we can find drift boat guides if anyone wants to plan something last minute.

Salmon fishing on the Salmon River has been very tough for us drift boat guides. We have been struggling to put fish in the boat. The water levels are a low 350cfs. Being stuck floating upper river has hurt our success rates. The lower river has been getting a blasts of fish as the fish make it up top hopefully out luck will change. We stuck it out on the lake as long as we could but last Wednesday was my last charter for 2014. We actually had been going ok off the river mouth the days prior to that. But all good things must come to an end and now it's been a struggle on the river. Hopefully the run will end up in the top end soon!
Some more rain would help out big time so please do a rain dance for us.

Salmon fishing has been tough all over- the Salmon River has been the worse I've seen for this late in September in many years. Lake Ontario is still producing a few salmon each trip by no means are we doing well. The night fishing at the river mouth has been the best bet as of late. The guys willing to give up some sleep are getting best action of any of the options for this time in the season. We expect more movement in the river soon but everything seems 2-3 weeks behind still. With some luck a good load of fish will show up and it will be on fire soon! As for now it's still fishing and the last few seasons were outstanding so now it looks like it'll be one of those so-so years. We caught plenty out on the open lake most of the summer. Next season if there's any question about river fishing book a summer charter we can show you what nice silver good eating fish are really like Thanks for checking us out!

Salmon fishing on Eastern Lake has turned on big time! Good numbers of king and coho salmon are staging up a few miles off the Salmon River. Of course there has been some concern over the numbers of kings returning this season but I assure it is all for nothing. The run is just running behind a few weeks and there are plenty - I mean plenty on the way! That said I still believe the Salmon River to see small pods moving in steadily all month. No really major runs for a few more weeks. Of course come late September that will change when these fish are ready to go. It has been a year where the fish have been slow to mature thus they showed up a few weeks late. I fully expect several more very productive weeks of deep water trolling on Lake Ontario. Along with some decent inshore fishing in the shallow waters just off the Salmon River. We still have guides and charters available, we would love to help you out getting a fishing trip set up for you.
