Salmon river fishing report 5/15/2019

THAT'S A WRAP !!!! NOW ITS WALLEYE TIME .  

Our 2019 spring steelhead season is over ! Damn releases with high flows have given the last of our steelhead a free ride back to lake Ontario. It overall was a good spring ... there were slow days, but the good days out numbered the slower ones . All in all we had a great time with everyone on the boats .

I want to thank everyone who booked this spring steelhead and fished with us ! Your business is much appreciated ! Check out our photo album for this springs photos.

Salmon River Fishing Report 04/16/19

Steelhead fishing has been a grind the last few trips . WINTER JUST WON'T LET GO HERE IN PULASKI ! We're working every nook and cranny for our bites and fish. Constantly changing baits and plugs has been the key to the fish we are bringing to the boat. 

Water levels late Saturday night was raised to 5,000 cfs and forced us to cancel three days worth of trips . SAFETY IS ALWAYS OUR PRIORITY ! Yesterday the power cut back the water to 2,200 cfs and we're back on schedule ! fishing will drastically become better as each day goes by . The spawn is happening and the steelhead should be feeding much more aggressively !!

I currently have May 8,9 and 13th still available for this springs steelhead run ! With how long winter has stayed here i truly predict these days to be some of the best steelhead fishing of 2019 !! Call, text or email me to get in on these last available days of spring steelhead fishing ! 484-239-9399

Here are a few pictures from the last month of fishing .

FISHING REPORT 10-7-2015

Salmon fishing this season has been up and down inside the salmon river !!!! some days ok some days slow and this is why I choose to fish at night in the driftboat outside of the salmon river estuary !!!!!! As you can see it PRODUCES . The "night bite " has been consistent with a few fish hitting he boat almost every night . there is rain in our forecast and that may be a GAME CHANGER . Once the fish decide to make their move into the river so will I . but as of right now the NIGHT BITE is the ticket to landing one of these big kings . please keep in mind that I have some openings for this falls steelhead run so if you want to get in on the action please call sooner than later !!!!!!!! 484-239-9399 here are just a few pictures from the past few evenings out fishing !!!!!

Report 10-30-14

sorry for the lack of reports but I've been on the water everyday !! Salmon season has finally come to an end and its been one of the toughest seasons most of us guides have ever seen . Myself and my clients were fortunate enough to consistently bring fish to the nest almost every trip ...... With the will to adapt and venture off to different rivers and tributaries I had the ability to have a strong season with many of our clients returning home with great memories and full coolers of fish!! I want to again thank all of our customers who booked a fishing adventure, and to the guides that worked with me this past salmon season.

on the flip side of things STEELHEAD FISHING IS IN FULL SWING !!!!!! we have switched over all our tackle and are in search of these silver bullets of the fall !!!!! Fish have been constantly taken on both trout beads and egg sacks with traditional olors working the best

we are currently booking dates for our winter steelhead trips , with many available dates in December, January, February and March !!! check out our WINTER SPECIAL for 2 days fishing and 2 night lodging package and SAVE BIG !!!!

please keep in mind that if I am booked on a date you would like to fish I have a select few very high quality guides that work for me and we can definitely get you on both the water and on the fish !!!!
