Salmon Season Is Underway

By |September 24th, 2019|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , |

 The Fall salmon run is well underway now.  It started off good but the weather was too summer like this past week and slowed things down. Hopefully more Fall like weather will return soon because steelhead  will hopefully  start showing up once the water cools down.    Who's ready to catch some steelhead?? The NYS Salmon River Fish Hatchery will be holding the 23rd Annual Salmon River Fish Hatchery Open House and Family Day on Saturday, Sept. 28, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  For more information this event click here. Open Dates -  I have the following days open.   October 26 & 27. November 3 December 21,22,28,29 for the rest of 2019.

Fishing Report – Upcoming News

By |December 13th, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

  Steelhead fishing on the Salmon River has been very good this fall, good numbers of fish and multi year classes from 4lb fish to fish in the mid teens.  Some of the fish up river are starting to settle into winter holding water, but lower in the river there are plenty of fish moving up river in transitional holding water.   I will be teaming up with the Douglaston Salmon Run  running another "Winter Special", look for that coming out soon.  You can e-mail me for details now if you want to get in on it sooner. Echo Flyfishing is coming out with some new spey rods for 2019 check them out at Echo Flyfishing.  I'm looking forward to adding a few of these to my arsenal for 2019.

Silver Bullets And Brown Trout

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!

Ausable Report

By |June 1st, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , |

  The West Branch of the Ausable has been fishing pretty good  recently.  Water flows are dropping to summer time lows, water temps are mid 50's-60 still.  Tight line nymphing has been the most productive technique by far, getting down and dirty with nymphs has produced some incredible client days along with some quality fish. Best patterns nymphing have been: Frenchie, Pat's Rubber Leg Stone, Sexy Walts worm and a Rainbow Warrior in sizes 8 to 16.   Looking to book a trip, contact us here.
