Fall Steelhead

By |November 18th, 2022|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

        Terry with one of many on a recent trip   Steelhead season is in full swing now and with the recent snow on the ground and flows increasing its setting up for a great rest of the season.  Swinging flies has been pretty consistent now with number of fish in the river. I'd say 90% of my clients are changing over to swinging flies and taking on the challenge of trying to catch a steelhead the hardest way to catch one.  Nothing like swinging down a run with a fresh blanket of snow on the ground.

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!

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.

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

Quick Fishing Update

By |April 13th, 2015|Categories: Reports|Tags: , , , , , , , |

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.
