Updated Fishing Reports - Salmon River, Pulaski Ny

June 26, 2015

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.

PAST FISHING REPORTS

April 14, 2015

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.

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.
Package deals available-
Spring drop back steelhead and walleye dates go fast -April and May are prime months -get your reservations in asap!
Merry Christmas everyone!
Have a happy and safe new year!!
With many fish on!!

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.
