Quick Fishing Update

By |April 13th, 2015|Reports|0 Comments|

Fishing on the Salmon River has been tough for the first half of April, Hopefully were over the hump and good days are ahead of us. The flows are still high on the Salmon River but we shouldn’t see it any higher hopefully unless we get some rain. Rumors say the hatchery is done collecting eggs and the hatchery has plenty of adult steelhead in it waiting to drop back into the river. The ice on the eastern end Lake Ontario is finally gone and that opens the inshore brown trout fishing.

What we lacked in salmon this year, the steelhead are making up for it. If you’re on any social media sites for the Salmon River area you will see a lot of the big steelhead being caught this year.

I’m book solid thru all of November but a couple of the guides I use have some open dates. If you want to get in on some great steelhead fishing click here to contact me about booking a trip.

Steelhead Are Here But

By |October 27th, 2014|Reports|0 Comments|

There are plenty of steelhead in the river, they just don’t want to bite like we want them too. The water temp is just too warm for them to act like they should. The plus side, there’s a cold front on the way.  Just like there are plenty of fish, there are plenty of fisherman along the banks of the Salmon River. Respect each other’s space and don’t crowd in on other anglers space and have a enjoyable day fishing, isn’t that why were out there???

Fishing Update

By |September 29th, 2014|Reports, Uncategorized|0 Comments|

Fishing remains slow and everyone has theories to where the fish are or even if we are going to get a decent return of fish this year.  Is it because of the flood in 2010? Low water and lack of eggs at the hatchery in 2011?? The cold winter and colder then normal lake temperatures this year??  Or 60% of last years fish at the hatchery last year were two year olds (this years fish) Or all the above. Only time will tell. As I type this there has been some fish showing up at the mouth staged in front.
On the plus side there are some Steelhead in the river, if you try to target them you could be rewarded like Blake here in the picture above.

First Trip of the season

By |September 15th, 2014|Uncategorized|0 Comments|

Started my river trips for the season on Sunday and it was pretty slow. We saw more fish going back to the lake at daylight then we saw swimming upstream the rest of the day, which is pretty common this time of the year.
If your looking to book Steelhead dates in November I have very few left, don’t wait.
