It’s hard to believe but salmon season on the River here in Pulaski is only a couple of short weeks away.
My September calendar is Pretty solid but I do have 2 colleagues that I guarantee will give you 110% so feel free to call regarding their services.
My September/October calendar has limited dates and they are as follows
September 14, 15 and October 25 through the 28 and Oct 30 and 31
As many have heard the fishing on the big Lake this summer has been nothing short of phenomenal and is as good or better than anything we’ve seen in the last 10 years that being said it’s a pretty safe bet we will be looking at an incredible salmon season on the River.
I know a lot of people have concerns regarding our steelhead well I’m going to go out on a limb and say I think were in good shape this year as we have been catching a good number of steelhead on the Lake as well.
All of that being said I feel confident that our fall and winter/spring steelhead fishery is back on track and should be quite productive once again.
Anyone interested float trips later this fall and throughout the winter give us a call now and get your dates locked up.
See you all on the River Capt. Steve
I know it’s been quite a while since my last post, but we have been very busy.
The salmon fishing on Lake Ontario is currently red-hot and has been the best I’ve seen in at least the last 5 years as we progress through July limit catches are taking place daily.
The Lake has also been producing a fairly steady amount of steelhead and our fall winter fishery is currently looking very promising and hopefully not the slow grind that we experienced the last 2 years, it does appear that our comeback is taking place and I’m excited.
We currently have openings on the Lake boat from now right on through mid-September or even later conditions permitting, we try to run both a.m. and p.m. charters so give us a call for availabilities if you would like to get in on some of this great fishing.
Our fall calendar for salmon is almost full and we only have a couple of days left available due to cancellations and nonpayment of deposits.
These are my current available dates
September 15, 16, 17 and 18
October 10 11 12 14 15 and the 23rd through the end of the month.
By the 23rd we should be seeing the bulk of our steelhead coming in and that would most likely end up being our primary target.
Our November and December calendars are also beginning to fill so if you would like to experience some beautiful float trips give us a call at 315-298-4291
Hard to believe but once again we find ourselves looking at the end of summer and the arrival of our annual King and Coho salmon runs.
For the 1st time in roughly 3 years I am truly excited with the outlook of this fall.
Spending countless days on the Lake, both chartering and playing I have seen very positive signs of the increasing health in our fisheries.
As of this moment there are very very good numbers of both adult King and Coho salmon anywhere from 90 feet to 150 feet out in front of the salmon River.
Also this summer we caught an ample number of steelhead which appear to be quite healthy and averaging roughly 8+ pounds, this is a good thing as the last 2 summers on the Lake produced very few steelhead hence the poor returning runs on the River last fall.
I feel quite confident that our steelhead season this year is going to be quite the improvement from last.
Although my personal calendar is basically full for this fall salmon season I do have a 2nd boat that is available with plenty of open dates for salmon season.
Please call if you are interested and we will do our best to accommodate your group.
We also still have plenty of available dates for steelhead throughout November and December
Remember don’t miss out on your trip of a lifetime, call us at 315-298-4291 and we will do our best to hook you up.
Hope to see you on the River with tight lines
Capt. Steven Kowalski
I’ve just had 2 prime October dates open up, the 19th, 20th have just become available.
These are prime dates for both dime bright steelhead and possibly salmon on the salmon river here in Pulaski, NY..
On any of these 2 dates and angler can expect multiple hookups with these hard fighting fish.
Don’t drag your heels as these dates will not last. call or email now and get your day on the books
Sorry for the lack of recent reports, but we have been very busy with other projects.
Regardless, as some of you may know the salmon River is still fishing very slow although If you put your time and you will most likely be rewarded with some beautiful steelhead and there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
Upon speaking with hatchery personnel it appears that the numbers of fish in the hatchery and nursery waters of Beaver brook and the upper Salmon River are in fact very good.
This being said we should expect to see an average to good spring dropback season.
With the winter is milder as it has been the Lake is already setting up nicely for our spring Brown trout fishing opportunities and we are in the process of rigging the boats for that opportunity.
Also I am happy to announce that we have a new boat in the flotilla that will give us the opportunity to properly expand our services to the Oswego River this is a custom-built Hyde powered by a 15 hp 4 stroke Yamaha engine.
This will give our clients an option when the salmon River is not fishing up to our standards.
Here are a couple of pictures from the last trip or 2 for your enjoyment
