Steelhead Season is a wrap. I want to thank all my clients for a great season and looking forward to seeing you all next season. If you haven't already booked your dates for the upcoming fall, now is the time to book your dates so you don't miss out on a great season.

The Fall Salmon Run is quickly approaching and reports from the lake are "On Fire," "Non Stop Action," and "Best Bite we have seen in years." If you haven't booked your trip yet, don't wait, you won't want to miss out on action.

The 2016 salmon season is underway and picking up speed each day. I think I have seen more salmon in the river this season then all of last year, well almost. The past few days a few hundred fish have been entering the river with no "Big Run" yet. Cooler temperatures are in the forecast, so hopefully that might trigger the first big run of the year (fingers crossed).

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 [...]

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.

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.
