Salmon River Fishing Guided Trips for King Salmon
Chinook Salmon and Coho Salmon enter the Salmon River in Pulaski, NY in early September and remain until late October. These fish come primed for action out of the estuary and often take angler's offerings with gusto! Our favorite way to take King Salmon and Coho Salmon on our Salmon River guided fly fishing trips is to swing large streamers, provoking aggressive strikes from fish that are fresh out of the lake. However, we also fish a lot of egg patterns in the Salmon River as salmon are very territorial towards eggs and Steelhead are also in the river ready to eat salmon eggs. On our Salmon River guided fishing drift boat trips we can cover a lot of water and search for aggressive fish. Although King Salmon and Coho Salmon are the main targets on our Salmon River guided fishing trips in the months of September and October, it is not uncommon to catch early Steelhead and large migratory Brown Trout. In addition to using fly fishing gear, we also use conventional spinning gear on our Salmon River guided fishing trips. Back trolling plugs and lures on our Salmon River guided fishing trips for aggressive King Salmon is very a lot of fun and can be very productive! At times, we can also cast lures such as Rapala J-13's for aggressive King Salmon. Your Salmon River fishing guide will work with you to set up a trip of a lifetime.
Salmon River Guided Fishing Trips for Winter Steelhead
Steelhead follows, arriving in late October and remaining in the Salmon River until May. Though these fish do not spawn until Spring, they enter the Salmon River each Fall with only one thing on their minds: feed! This creates a great fishing opportunity for anglers looking to catch fresh, chrome Steelhead up to 15 pounds. On our Salmon River guided fly fishing trips, we target fish using egg and nymph patterns under an indicator and swing streamers with switch and spey rods searching for aggressive fish. We also offer guided spin fishing trips for Steelhead in the Salmon River on our guided fishing trips. We use a technique called float fishing, and it is extremely effective on winter Steelhead in the Salmon River. A guided drift boat fishing trip on the Salmon River will allow you more opportunities at catching a Steelhead as we can cover a lot of water. The Steelhead fishing on the Salmon River in the months of January and February can be very productive and offer solitude as the weather can deter the large crowds associated with the Salmon River. Your Salmon River fishing guide will make sure you are where you need to be to hook up to these fresh Steelhead!
Salmon River Guided Fishing Trips for Spring Steelhead
Come Spring the Steelhead will have spawned and will be heading back from the Salmon River to Lake Ontario. On their way back to the lake, the Steelhead begin to feed heavily on eggs, nymphs, and baitfish to recoup from the rigors of the spawn. This creates some of the best Steelhead fishing of the year as their aggressive behavior makes them susceptible to being caught on the fly. Spring Steelhead fishing on the Salmon River is certainly something every fly angler must experience. This is THE time to book a Salmon River guided fly fishing trip. In the spring, we also use spinning gear to float fish for Steelhead, which is very effective on the Salmon River. High water in the Spring creates excellent conditions for a guided Salmon River drift boat fishing trip. Your Salmon River fishing guide will put you where you need to be to hook up with these feisty Steelhead!
