Winter Steelhead

By |December 13th, 2017|Categories: Reports, Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

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.

Good hatches of bugs have been coming off just about every stream I have fished this year providing good dry fly action. Early in the morning when there has been no hatches we have been nymphing with good success.  I will be up on the West Branch of the Ausable in Wilmington for the month of June if your looking to get out on the water give me a call (518) 495-2965 or email me at paul@paulsguideservice.com

Steelhead Report

By |November 10th, 2016|Categories: Reports|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

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

Salmon Season Is Underway

By |September 23rd, 2016|Categories: Reports|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

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).
