Fall salmon season openings

Fall salmon season openings

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

Current lake conditions and Fall Salmon River Outlook

Current lake conditions and Fall Salmon River Outlook

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

UPDATE

UPDATE

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

EARLY 2017 LAKE SCOUTING TRIP 01/20/17

EARLY 2017 LAKE SCOUTING TRIP 01/20/17

So Capt. Rich and I decided to have a captains play day on the Big lake today
Curiosity had us looking in the general vicinity of our new possible Spring port for the Seaduction
I would have to say the results look very promising
We have our spring calendar organized and we are now taking bookings for the big Lakes 2017 season. We are hoping to have the big boat on the water by April 1 to pursue our trophy Brown trout as our picture show we found them and they will be there in the spring.
If you would like some of this action don’t wait give me a call at 315-298-4291

I hope you enjoy these pictures

Lake Ontario / Lake Oneida updates

Lake Ontario / Lake Oneida updates

Just A quick update
The fishing on the Eastern basin of Lake Ontario continues to be somewhat tough.
Most of the salmon that we are seeing are juveniles, and the Brown trout bite is spotty at best, although some of the Brown trout we are catching are mammoth.
Lake trout fishing is still consistent with limit catches being taken daily.
Reports from the Western end of the Lake are good it appears that there are plenty of fish and the reports that we are getting from our colleagues on the Canadian side of the lake are phenomenal.
Contrary to reports issued by state of New York we certainly have no shortage of bait on this end of the lake given this I expect to see our Kings start moving in in approximately 2 to 3 weeks.

Lake Oneida is currently fishing well for walleyes and smallmouth bass.
Limit catches have been the norm if one puts in their time.
For those of you looking for a summer getaway we still have openings for the big Lake as well as Lake Oneida.
Give us a call at 315-298-4291 and we will hook you up.

Lake Ontario reports and pictures

Lake Ontario reports and pictures

Well we are done with the River for the season.
And it is now go time on Lake Ontario.
Fishing has been pretty decent with a mix of Brown trout, lake trout, steelhead along with the occasional Atlantic.
We also had our 1st king of the season on the line last Saturday but unfortunately after a lengthy battle he spit the lure and eluded capture.
Our new home port for the seduction is now in Oswego, and we are ready to do battle at a moments notice.
If you would like to enjoy world-class trophy fishing on our beautiful Lake give us a call at 315-298-4291 and we will get you on board and into some beautiful fish.
We offer multiple packages and pricing’s and also have other boats at our disposal to accommodate your larger groups.

Salmon River steelhead report

Salmon River steelhead report

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

Salmon river winter Steelhead fishing report

Salmon river winter Steelhead fishing report

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 !
