Steelhead Are Here But

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

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.

Water Release Dates

I have a had few people ask me when the release dates are this summer, here they are.

This Season Is A Wrap!

This season is a wrap and what a great season it was. The Salmon run started out early in August and was incredible all the way thru October with some really big kings! Steelhead season started off with a bang too and continued right thru the fall. Those early fish in the DSR made for some great takes for my clients swinging flies. Winter fishing was good if you wanted to do battle with Old Man Winter – Me, I must be getting older, I can’t take those really cold days anymore. With the long winter came a extended spring season and as I type this there is still plenty of fish to be caught in the river. We saw some insane numbers come to the net and anyway you wanted to catch them. To top it all off I had Great clients/Friends, so what more could a guide ask for!!
Looking forward to seeing everyone this coming season! Just think Salmon Season is only 3 1/2 months away!!!
Tight Lines,

Big Water

 
  High water on all tribs continues as daytime temperatures continue to be in the mid 70′s for Monday. The runoff will slow down a little Tuesday night as the the night time low is going to be in the low 20′s, but then back to spring like the rest of the week. Brown trout fishing on the lake has been really good along the Lake Ontario shoreline.
I have May 4 open as well as May 10th for Steelhead trips. Give me a call 315-298-3949 or click here to book a trip.

Fall Steelhead

The Salmon season is behind us now and the river is full of Steelhead.  We started out mid-October with low warm water and plenty of steelhead that weren’t eager to bite.  Now on November 1st we have really high water and good water temps and the outside temp is 68 (not bad huh?) and a river full of eager to bite steelhead.  Once the flows settle back down we will be set up for a great fall/winter season.  My November is full and I have some December dates still open.  If your interested in a trip, please call or e-mail to discuss it.

Salmon Season

The time of year everyone is waiting for is upon us - the salmon run.  The Annual white water release is back on this year after a years drought.  The release this weekend should pull some fish in the river.  

Until 9:00 PM tomorrow, Thu, 185 CFS
From 9:00 PM tomorrow until 9:00 PM Fri, 335 CFS
From 9:00 PM Fri, until 9:00 PM Sun, 750 CFS
From 9:00 PM Sun, until 11:59 PM Sun, 335 CFS

Salmon have been making their way into the river for a few weeks now, not a big run yet, but enough to keep your attention.  There has been a good number of BIG kings caught on the lake the past few weeks, so bring your A game and some spare equipment.  I do have a couple of days open, so if you haven’t booked your trip, now is the time.
