Fall Fly Fishing on the Salmon River
Chinook Salmon and Coho Salmon enter the Salmon River in early September and remain until late October. These fish come primed for action out of the estuary and often take anglers 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. On our guided drift boat trips on the Salmon River we can cover a lot of water and search for aggressive fish.
Winter Fly Fishing on the Salmon River
Steelhead follow, arriving in late October and remaining in the 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 guided fly fishing trips on the Salmon River, we target fish using egg patterns under an indicator and swing streamers searching for aggressive fish. A guided drift boat trip on the Salmon River will allow you more opportunities at catching a Steelhead as we can cover a lot of water.
Spring Fly Fishing on the Salmon River
Come Spring the Steelhead will have spawned and will be heading back 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 is certainly something every fly angler must experience. High water in the Spring creates excellent conditions for a guided Salmon River drift boat trip.
