It’s been a while since I have made a post and now that we are in the dog days of summer it’s time to start thinking of fall. Reports on social media show some kings are being caught on the eastern end of Lake Ontario along with a good number on Steelhead and a few Atlantic’s mixed in. We are hoping for a good fall run after the last two being very slow, fingers crossed.
With the very dry summer we’re having in the northeast and streams running at a trickle, Brookfield and Flow Management Advisory Team are already taking steps to make sure we have water for the upcoming spawning run.
Public Notice for Salmon River
Due to lower than normal reservoir water levels on the Salmon River (South), Brookfield Renewable has announced the Whitewater Recreation Release scheduled for July 9th – 10th is cancelled. The decision to cancel is based on input from members of the Flow Management Advisory Team (FMAT) regarding the adverse impact that the flow increase would have upon an already low reservoir level and the possible effect upon the ability to sustain spawning season flow requirements later this year.
Thank you for your patience during these low water level conditions.
Please use caution and wear a personal flotation device when recreating on or near water. Pay close attention to your surroundings and respect all signage, sirens and barriers.
Always check water conditions before you recreate. One source is www.h2oline.com.
If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at Inquiries.NY@brookfieldrenewable.com or 518-615-9357.
Looking ahead to the fall calendar, Salmon season isn’t far off, if you want to get in on catching some Kings and coho contact me about dates. If you haven’t booked your November dates, don’t put it off, I only have a couple days open but have other guides available.
