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 [...]

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. Guides do get to fish once in a while.

Lee's smile say's it all. 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.
