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 it seems spring is here, If everything goes to plan our lake boat “the Seaduction” will be splashing down in its new early home port in Sodus bay at Krenzer Marine.
Normally the Brown trout fishing in that region is phenomenal hence our move. Our calendar is starting to fill but there are still plenty of openings we plan on staying there as long as the fishing opportunities remain best for our clients and will most likely remain in Sodus until June.
We still have a good number of openings for the spring Brown trout charters on the Lake and a few prime days in April still remain for either the lake or the Salmon River in Pulaski.
For smaller groups, one or 2 people only. We offer a more affordable package in our smaller boats on the south east shore these trips can be very productive for Brown trout given wind direction and water temperatures with catch rates every bit as good and sometimes even better than the big boat.
Don’t miss out on your trip of a lifetime so far things are shaping up beautifully and I personally feel it’s going to be a phenomenal spring give us a call at 315-298-4291 and we will get you on the books and into the fish
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

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
As old man winter watches over the salmon river here in Pulaski, NY. I’m happy to say that the higher water we’ve been blessed with has brought in even more Fresh Steelhead for us to enjoy.
Most of us are seeing a half dozen hook ups or more on an average day, some days more some days less.
I’m also told that there are more than enough Steelhead in the race way and beaver brook to accommodate the hatchery in their egg taking needs for the spring, That being said we should be in good shape for our spring dropback fishing.
We still have openings for March, April and early May so give us a call and we’ll hook you up !
Another great day on the Salmon river, Beautiful weather and cooperative fish = happy client.
Jerome with a couple from today
Fished Aaron and Mike Today
Did much better than anticipated for coming off a water drop and water temps dropping into the mid 30s
We were able to land several and fight several more on both the spinning gear and back trolling
Air temps averaged about 12° for the day but the action was enough to keep everybody warm.
With only three other boats on the river and virtually no bank pressure our fish are finally beginning to act like
