The Life of a Successful Salmon River fishing Guide, Pulaski NY. (About Randy Jones the Yankee Angler).

by Morgan Lyle For The Daily Gazette.

Want an idea of the demand for a good “Full-Time” Salmon and Steelhead Salmon River fishing guide in Pulaski NY?

“I have already had to start scheduling my days off. A year in advance, believe it or not” said Randy Jones, aka, “the Yankee Angler”. One of only a handful of “Full-Time” Salmon River fishing guides who take people Steelhead and Salmon fishing in Pulaski NY. From the start of salmon season in September right through to the end of steelhead season in the Spring.

There are good reasons to envy the lives of a Salmon River fishing guide. They make a living doing what the rest of us do for fun. Their workplace is a drift boat on a river, and their only boss is Mother Nature.

But most fishers also realize it can be a tough life. One that could burn a person out on fishing altogether. Jones used to work every weekend and holiday. Now, because his Salmon River guide business is so successful and popular. He takes those days off and only guides mid-week. He’s in bed every night at 8 and up every morning at 3.

All through the winter. Long before most people have clicked their remote car starters and sat down to a cup of coffee. He’s backing his drift boat trailer into the inky Salmon River in the frigid dawn in Pulaski NY. With anxious, bundled-up fishing client’s dreaming of leaping silver Steelhead.

Even at the slowest times of the year. Salmon River fishing guide Randy Jones is competing with dozens or hundreds of fishing anglers for fish. Steelhead are tricky to find, difficult to fool and very challenging to land on the Salmon River in Pulaski NY.

When he’s not out with clients (some of whom have precious little Salmon or Steelhead fishing experience). He’s working on his fishing web site’s or lining up speaking engagements at Trout Unlimited functions and other gatherings that help promote his Salmon River guide business and keep his guide schedule full. So it was nice to learn that the daily fishing guide grind hasn’t blunted Jones’ passion for the sport. When I asked him when would be a good time to get some pictures of him on the Salmon River. He said,”I’ve got a day off scheduled Wednesday. Let’s go out in the drift boat.”

“It takes an enormous amount of time and energy,” he said. “But what originally got me into the sport as an angler is still there. The love of being outdoors, the excitement of the Steelhead and Salmon fight, the challenge of it all. Basically just having a love of the sport that I haven’t lost after 35 years and sharing that passion with others, who have the same Salmon and Steelhead fishing interest’s as I do.

Jones, 58, an Iowa native who lived and guided in Vermont and Cape Cod for 12 years before moving to Pulaski NY. May be one of the best-known of the hardy River fishing guide corps. Randy has 35 plus years of experience as a fishing guide. Which has helped him to acquire a vast and diverse Steelhead and Salmon fishing knowledge base. While he’s relaxed and good natured with his clients, as a good River fishing guide should be. He is also very much a hard-nosed businessman, always on the lookout for an advantage or a new way to promote his Salmon River fishing guide service.

His Social Media sites offer expert Salmon and Steelhead Salmon River guide fishing informative articles. Based on Jones’ years of daily guide experience on the Salmon River. About flies, spin fishing, fly fishing, float fishing, rigging, techniques, fishing habitats and finding fish.

As free as he is with general spin and fly fishing advice. Jones keeps things like Steelhead and Salmon honey-holes and productive bait, bead and fly-patterns secret, to be shared only with his fishing clients. He doesn’t waste a client’s time on a Salmon River hole that was pounded the day before. And he watches each cast carefully. To make sure the sport has covered a good fishing lie thoroughly before moving on.

Most of Jones’ clients seem to land Salmon and Steelhead. But of course, there is more value to fishing with a guide than simply being chauffeured to a good fishing spot in a heated drift boat. You learn things it would have taken you years to learn by yourself and you can come back confident and informed on your own.

What’s it like to be a Salmon and Steelhead Salmon River fishing Guide?

“It can be a variety of different things. From total satisfaction that you’ve taken someone with lots of Salmon and steelhead fishing experience to no fishing experience. And brought their fishing ability level up to meet their expectations or above. The same way a teacher would feel when their students get an A on a test. To the thrill and the excitement of the Salmon or Steelhead fight. The rewards of running a profitable Salmon River fishing guide business. To sometimes the feeling of inadequacy when you have a slow fishing day on the Salmon River,” he said.

Jones can be reached at (315) 963 – 2065. Along with his own fishing guide business, he offers a referral service to 6 other local top fishing guides. That he keeps busy while taking his client over flow. The Schenectady Gazette.,Schenectady, NY. All rights reserved. Reprinted with permission.

Salmon River Guide Trophy Steelhead Fishing Testimonial from Pulaski NY:

Randy, What a great day! Just when I thought I knew a little something about steelhead fishing I had to fish with you. Your guide service is a class act. I really appreciate you sharing your expertise and patience. As well as some of your Salmon river “honey” holes with me off the drift boat. I would encourage any steelhead fisherman, novice or expert, to fish with a guide even if it’s just once. And if they can get guide Randy Jones they’re in for a great day. There is so much to learn about steelhead fishing. You can trim years off the “learning curve” by steelhead fishing with a real pro such as yourself. Thanks again for the fun and truly a learning steelhead fishing experience on the Salmon River in Pulaski NY. Thanks again! John
