A group shot from the Casting For Recovery event at the Douglaston Salmon Run yesterday. For the second year in a a row I volunteered for this great event for the ladies. What a fun day with some special women.
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 […]

Spring has sprung on the Salmon River.
Fishing is picking up on the Salmon River, with the mild winter things are a little a head of schedule this year. The hatchery took eggs last week and we are seeing good numbers of dropbacks down river. I have a couple of days still open in April if you are looking to get in on the action this Spring.
It was honor to help out at the Casting for Recovery event yesterday at the Douglaston Salmon Run. These 14 ladies Rocked! If you get a chance to volunteer at one of these events I highly recommend you do.
Who’s ready for the coho run?? Will you time it right when they decide to run?
Interested in booking a trip it’s not to late, I had Sept 19 and Oct 2 open up due to cancellations, also I have a few afternoon dates open as well. I have a couple of guides who I work closely with that have a few days open too. Give me a call or email me to discuss a trip and we’ll get you hooked up.
Just in (9/15) - One of the DSR river patrollers just reported that he saw at least 100 Coho and King down in the Estuary at the lower property line.
Due to the overwhelming requests for dates for salmon season I will be offering a limited number of afternoon trips. Interested, For more information contact me via FB, phone or email.
Salmon season is just around the corner. Hopefully we should see a good run based on statistics and hope mother nature is in our favor this fall. A good source was fishing in the Douglaston Salmon Run Sunday and saw a few salmon moving thru. Could we have another year with a early run?
If you haven’t booked your dates now is the time, I have only a few days open but I have a couple of other guides working for me that may have it open.
Once again this year I will offering Guided Trout trips on the Ausable River, 9 Mile Creek, Chittenango Creek, Kinderhook Creek and the Battenkill.

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.
