Welcome Back to the SLAM'n Salmon River in Pulaski NY!

Will this years King and Coho Salmon Run be a HERO or a ZERO? (Latest on our Steelhead)

Lets take a look - by Randy Jones.

1. The last 2 years, the Majority of Salmon didn't run during our normally productive late Sept. - first week of Oct. Leaving many of you disappointed. The bulk came in the early part of the 2nd week of Oct. Making the Salmon fishing great until the end of Oct.

2. The last couple of years the numbers of King and Coho Salmon were down a little. The average size of the Salmon were down also. This was confirmed by "some" of the Charter Boat Capt's on Lake Ontario last summer.

3. We had Drought conditions last Salmon season. Which caused less water to be released from the dam. Resulting in a VERY low emergency release of 185 cfs. Which didnt help.

GREAT Salmon River NEWS This Year!

1. A good indication for this years Salmon Run. Is to see how "most" of the Full-Time Charter Boat Capt's. on the Lake are doing this Summer. My Capt. friends are reporting - More Salmon and Bigger average size!
MORE Great News - Lake Ontario's salmon fishing 'on fire' lately despite high water levels. - http://www.newyorkupstate.com/outdoors/2017/07/salmon_fishing_on_lake_on...

2. No drought this year! Ye-haa! Presently, we have an abundance of water for a normal water flow release of approx. 335 cfs into the Salmon River. Throw in a Good rain storm, low-light and a strong West wind and it's GAME ON!

In Closing:
With most conditions being different this year, compared to the last 2 years. My Crystal Ball says it will be a better Salmon Season. It won't be a ZERO. So Lets all hope for a HERO!

P.S. - Know one can predict exactly when the BIG RUN of Salmon will happen. So please stop emailing and calling me about - When is the BIG RUN going to happen! - yuk yuk ;)

Latest on our Steelhead:
Once again, the Capt's on the Lake are report decent #'s. Better than the last 2 summers. Should see mostly 6 to 10 lb. Steelhead in the river this season. From the big stocking they did a few years back. Fingers crossed! :)


YOUR Current Salmon River NY Fishing Report.

Couple of early August King Salmon in the river now. With 1 or 2 entering daily. Not worth the trip yet.
Mostly Bass with a few Brown Trout around and a chance for a Trophy Steelhead or Atlantic Salmon!

THERE IS A CHANCE you could hit a Trophy Atlantic Salmon in the River Now!

Atlantic Salmon are making a re-bound on the Salmon River.

A guide friend who was targeting them over the summer off his drift boat landed 9.
A weekend fishing Friend of mine landed 3 in 3 trips up here.
Another friend counted 4 jumping in different parts of the river in 1 day.

What helped this summer was we had periods of abnormally high water. From May thru July. They also had enough water to do their weekend white water releases. This always helps!
Plus, the DEC. are seeing better returns over the last few years. In all their methods to count.

Still not a lot of'm, but you never know.

Your Salmon River Pulaski NY Guide Fishing Update
Salmon Season Drought Water levels?????
What effect could a "possible" low water flow on the Salmon River NY during Salmon Season have on YOUR fish?
Over 25 years, I've fished 2 entire Salmon Seasons in below normal "drought' water flow levels on the Salmon River, NY.
1 yr. - Lower river, fish came thru as usual. Another Yr. - Up river, fish came thru as usual.
Normally, low water (within reason) wont stop their naturally ingrained instinctive behavior to run the river to reproduce.

I'd swim thru a trickle of water myself, for a good women! Hows about you? :)

YOUR Summers Lake Ontario King Salmon Charter Boat Reports:
These Lake reports are normally an indication of what's to come for YOU in the Salmon River NY this Fall.
All the reports I've been getting "over all" are ok, good to great! Better than last year, more of'm and a more consistent - average BIGGER Size! Ye-Haa!

YOUR Current Salmon River NY Fishing Report's:
Mostly Bass with some Brown Trout around. There is a small chance presently, that you could hit a Trophy Atlantic Salmon in the river!

Hit quite a few good size (2lb+) Bass everywhere from 2A all the way up to Trestle.

An expert S.R. angler friend did ok while fishing below 2A using a fly rod, swinging streamers.
On the surface, using Hornberg and Quill Gordon's, size 10-12.
Caught 1 Atlantic Salmon - 18 inches. 2 Browns at 14-16 inches. 3 Bass and lost the 2 BIGGEST fish after an approx. 2 minute fight.
(He couldn't tell what they were)

Water on the Salmon River is at a low flow of approx. 185cfs.
If you lived locally or were not traveling far. The Salmon River might be a fun fishing option for you this summer.
Never know, FISH ON!
