Steelhead are here now! The lower end of the Salmon River is fishing really well for steelhead as they migrate up the river to feed on salmon eggs. Seems this years run is bigger and kicking butt!

Winter is in full effect right now on the Salmon River. The lake effect snow and single digits at night means slush will start being a factor. Here are a few tips to help you be successful. No need to start at first light. Usually the bite doesn't start til the sun hits the water and the air temp rises. Fish slow and deep especially in higher flows. Fish flies you have confidence in. Concentrate on the guts and tail-out of pools. Dress appropriately, wear layers and it help to be in a drift boat with heaters.

It’s hard to believe its early November already, where did the fall go? Everyone has steelhead fishing and hunting season on the brain, including myself; I’m looking forward to spending time in the woods with friends and family starting next Saturday. Fishing on the Salmon River is back to real steelhead fishing, very humbling for most guys; you have to work hard for every fish, covering lots of water effectively, changing flies often, and thinking out of the box on the heavy pressured water to find a couple each day. So get out there and enjoy yourself and time on the water with friends. - Paul

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.

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???
