The Salmon and Steelhead Fishing of your Dreams….   ….We’ll Mak’m Reeeeeeeeeeeeel.

Sept. 2 Exciting Salmon River Update! – Over the Labor Day weekend, we had good #’s of King Salmon (w/ a few Coho) entering and running the Salmon River.

Fresh King Salmon in higher water flows caused many Salmon to be lost by Salmon River anglers with numerous EXPLODING broken rods and SMOKED reels.
The BULK of Salmon are now from 2A down to the Estuary.
Tuesday – Glass Hole down.
Wed. – Sportsman down.
Thurs. – Pineville down
Fri. – Trestle down.
Sat. – Ellis cove down.
Sun. – Altmar down.

The further up the Salmon River the Salmon run, the more they will spread out and sit in the holes. If you don’t find many King Salmon running during the morning, then try the pools where MOST of the Salmon will hold until approx. Oct. 1.

Here are some of the reasons the King Salmon entered the Salmon River in good #’s. It’s also how you can 99% predict when a BIG RUN of King Salmon will happen. – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fs1xU2xH6DQ&list=PLlWqnCjYul-QrKK15mfz7iTwkuOXGR83o&index=3

August 28 Great News! – Everything is normal for August and right on schedule for your Salmon River King and Coho Salmon trip!

Normal – low #’s of early King Salmon are entering the Salmon River daily. The Key part here is Daily. This is better than a normal Aug. where you tend to have a lot of days with none entering.

We received a few King Salmon in early August during the white water release of 750cfs.
Since then: The first noticeable #’s of King Salmon were on the morning of Aug. 11. With a few small pods entering and running the Salmon River with a few hooked up and landed. (small pods = approx. 3-4 King Salmon per pod)
Most days its been a few to 15 King Salmon total entering and running the Salmon River during BOTH low light periods. With 3 to 5 days of a few small pods in both the am. and pm. Best day so far was 30-40 King Salmon entering the Salmon River during the am. low-light rush hour.

Take the current total of approx. 250 King Salmon that entered during the morning since early August and double that # to include the evening run.
Total # of King Salmon entering the Salmon River during both low-light periods will start to increase with cooler air temps., cooler water temps. and a higher water release from the dam.

In my opinion, there are not enough King Salmon in the Salmon River for a special trip. But if you lived locally, you might have a chance at a Trophy King Salmon. Presently, most anglers (not all) are coming up empty.

Reports on Lake Ontario can be a window into what’s to come on the Salmon River. So far all is normal for this early. Over July and August, the fishing on Lake Ontario for King Salmon has been good to great for most. We have seen a progression of King and Coho Salmon staging in the deeper water and shallower water in Lake Ontario, out in front of the Salmon River. With some moving and Staging in the Estuary, before running the Salmon River.
The fish cutters are reporting some Salmon with their stomachs closed off. Which tells you they are done eating and preparing to enter into the next stage of their life. Run the River and spawn.

Once you get up here, get ready to yell – Fish ON!
Good luck if yer com’n up! Best fish’s, Randy Jones of Yankeeangler.com – Salmon River Guide.

Extensive King Salmon Fishing Report for the Salmon River.

Aug. 4 Report. – During the white water release of 750cfs. No Salmon were reported entering and running the Salmon River during this higher water flow. But, there are always a few that enter that are not noticed.
Aug. 5 thru 9 Report. – Bon Jovi sings – No King Salmon were spotted DEAD or alive…………………
Aug. 10 – As I sit on my favorite Salmon River rock, there were no Salmon to watch. I twiddle my thumbs, waiting for the first King Salmon to Run. – I know, pretty lame. – yuk yuk.

FINALLY! – Aug. 11 – Norbert Samok catches the first Salmon River “Internet Reported” 2019 King Salmon, in the middle of a few small pods of Kings running the lower River. – Credit – https://www.facebook.com/eddiessalmonriverlodge/?hc_ref=PAGES_TIMELINE
Aug. 12 – Rarely One here, rarely one there with rarely a hook up. Or you could say – a few here and there with a few hook ups. – har har.
Aug. 13 – Approx. 16 King Salmon entered and ran the lower river today. With a few lucky anglers landing 1, 2 or 3.

All Seasons Sport Shop Reports – Since we are getting 75 phone calls and messages a day I figure I’ll throw up a report lol.
Yes there is some fish in the river a regular customer spent Sunday and Monday morning in the DSR where he caught 2 nice kings while hooking into 2 others and seeing 7 total.
Today we had another good friend of the store fish the middle section of the DSR he hooked into 4 landing one and reported seeing about a dozen fish all moving a at about 8 o’clock and nothing being seen after that. So there should be a couple fish moving thru town later today and tomorrow morning.. no we aren’t saying everyone run up here cause the run is on like we will be accused of.. We just want to keep everyone updated as we are getting a ton of questions about what’s true and what is not true. There are some cool nights in the forecast and there’s a bunch of fish that are staging out of temp in the lake.. When them fish run is anyone’s guess could be in 15 mins from now it could be a 3 weeks from now… they do what they want when they want.. the season looks very promising and exciting!! Labor Day weekend water release will likely bring a good amount of fish to play with.. see everyone soon.! Good luck……

Aug. 14 PM. Report- Another better-than-average day in the lower river. A bit slower with not as much fish movement reported as yesterday, but still, everyone that I spoke with at least saw some fish (again, not in the numbers of yesterday) and many of our anglers were able to bring a salmon to hand.
15 – Tuesday was the better of the past several days, but today, like yesterday was still decent for this time of year. After all, it’s only the middle of August. All angers that I spoke with were able to see multiple fish and several anglers were able to bring one or two fish to hand.
16 – Spotted isolated and very small pods
17 – The vast majority did not see any fish movement. A few fish were brought to hand but that was the exception to the rule. One angler saw one fish and was able to bring it to hand, another angler say four, hooked one and lost it, and a lucky trio of anglers said they had a great morning with about a dozen fish that stayed with them for the better part of the morning and one member of the group was able to get into five salmon and brought a couple to hand
18 – Slow, 30 anglers, 0 to 3 Salmon sighted and fought.
19 thru 27 – It was either- Dead, Slow, so-so, fair, not bad to ok for this early. A few to 15 Salmon daily, with ZERO to 5-6 hooked up. (Depending on #’s and experience level, normally).

Early August River fishing report Humor.

It was reported that 3 anglers who were fishing over a 3 mile length of the lower Salmon River on 1 day. Saw 1 King Salmon each. Its inconclusive whether it was the same single Salmon running the river that all 3 anglers saw. Or 3 separate Salmon?

There are always a “few” more Salmon in the river than what is being reported. So take the 6 Salmon that were counted in early August and double it to 12 total Salmon that are sitting someplace over 12 miles of river. Great odds! 1 Salmon per mile! Fishing’s great! Come on up! – har-har.

Yer Sore Butt fishing report. – In early August, yer butt gets sore from sitting on yer favorite rock all day while watching and waiting for 0 to 1 Salmon to rooster tail up the rapids to yer spot. – yuk-yuk.

Summer Salmon River Bank Erosion work in the upper river.

Did they FILL IN YOUR favorite Salmon and Steelhead catching hole with BIG Boulders? – har har.
These structures are all part of Phase 2 of the Lake Ontario Natural Resource Damages funded river restoration projects.
***Even with and below the Ellis cove parking lot, North bank down to the corner hole has a new wall structure. Around the corner in the Muskrat hole, North bank has a new wall structure from the top of the hole to the tail.
Head of Schoolhouse has a new wall structure on North bank. Tail of the Wire got some additional work to fix a erosion issue.
Please use caution when walking around these new structures.
Today’s Tip – Sometimes when they build these structures, they leave a nice deep excavated hole in front of them that will hold fish.
First person on the spot gets it! I’ll be there at 4 am! yuk-yuk.
It will be interesting to see what minor or major changes happen to the flow, banks and rivers bottom structure after the Salmon River floods a few times.

LOCAL FISHING NEWS you might have missed.
You might catch a King Salmon with a external and internal acoustic transmitter tag. Keep the tag and call the number for your reward. They tagged them with a transmitter so they can be studied in Lake Ontario.

More Salmon Stocking Cuts?
Just In – Preliminary status of Lake Ontario Alewife based on the 2019 spring trawl survey. – Results of the survey indicate that the biomass indices for adult (age 2 and older) yearling (age 1) alewife declined relative to 2018. Reproductive success was also lower than average in 2017 and 2018, suggesting the adult Alewife biomass may continue to decline.

In early August  the governor announced  a $5 million investment for the Salmon River Fish Hatchery in Pulaski, which he said has been doing an “extraordinary job” in producing species found in Lake Ontario. Cuomo said the investment would “reap dividends” for the local economy.

Inside Local Scoop!
1 King Salmon was spotted in the ladder @ the Salmon River hatchery. Few King Salmon rolling in a large up river pool. A fair # of Atlantic Salmon were spotted holding in 1 specific area.

Today’s King Salmon Tips:
Aug. 31 and Sept. 1 – 750cfs White Water Release Forecast Tip.
It’s a forecast. So check before making the trip up.
They normally run 335cfs on Fri. So on Friday in the DSR – (mouth of the River), you could possibly see a reaction to the increased water flow of 335cfs. If (?) they release 335cfs at midnight Thursday, on Friday am. fish the DSR from the Josh hole down for the hopeful am. run.

If you fishing this week in a 185cfs water flow, fish the lower river in the pools.

King and Coho Salmon Mail Bag Q’s.

Hi Randy, It’s Mike Greer, you have guided me a few times for Steelhead. I was hoping you could give me some helpful tips about where to Salmon fish the river for best chance of success. I know the water is low, but I also know there are a few King and Coho Salmon in the Salmon River and a few entering daily.
Again, thanks for all the teaching points of how to read the water, drift techniques, fish behavior and all those Steelhead we caught were a BONUS! Best Regards, Mike

Hi Mike, Presently, I’d recommend the lower Salmon River for King and Coho Salmon. Ball Park, down thru Town and below to the Black Hole (by the water treatment plant) and if you don’t mind paying to fish, I’d recommend the DSR. Good Luck! Randy

Randy, I hear Pulaski will have a Dancing Bear when the Circus comes to town? Joe
Yes Joe! You can see it by standing on the Short Bridge over looking the Salmon River in Pulaski, during the height of King and Coho Salmon season. Its also free and should be on everyone’s buck list. Randy

Randy, where is the VERY best place to fish for King and Coho Salmon during the Salmon Run on the Salmon River? Thanks, Mike
That’s an easy one Mike, anywhere I’m NOT fishing!!!

So Randy, how does the rain effect the fish? Mom
They usually go under da bridge, so they don’t get wet.

Funny Salmon River drift boat guide Fishing Humor.

First person on the spot gets it. I’ve been beat’n to special Salmon River fishing spots by seconds.
The funniest one was when I was floating down the Salmon River in the drift boat. Relaxed, enjoying the early morning stars and the tranquility of it all. I notice a shore angler walking on a trail thru the woods. Leading to the fishing spot I had hoped to get for my guest’s.
(Sometimes where these steelhead and Salmon lay is as exact as fitting a key into a lock.)

I can see the angler walking with a flashlight as it moves to the rhythm of his stride. I start to get nervous and push the drift boat faster and faster thru the Salmon River white water rapids. As my drift boat slapped the water loudly.
I can see the rhythm of the walking angler’s flashlight speed up as he increases his pace. It almost look’s like a strobe light, he is walking – jogging sooooo fast.

He hears me coming……… Im pushing the drift boat fast’rrrrrrr……….. Its a race to the finish!
He lands on the spot seconds before me. First person on the spot….. gets it.
Turns out we were both drift boat guides and knew each other well. We both laughed out loud until our stomach’s hurt at what had just transpired.
He was nice enough to share his fishing spot with my guest’s and everyone caught some fish.

So much, for floating down the Salmon River in the drift boat. Relaxed, enjoying the early morning stars and the tranquility of it all.

Mark your Salmon River Calendar. Possible (?) Good Run of Salmon Aug. 31-Sept. 1.

The Salmon River is going to a scheduled “Forecast” of a White Water Release of 750cfs over the Labor Day Holiday Weekend. Usually, but not always. The increased water release of 750cfs over the weekend can help entice a few more Salmon to make the run into the Salmon River.
BUT, you will also see an increase of anglers fishing due to the Holiday. Sometimes this weekend can be good if your in the right spot (lower river) and sometimes this weekend can be a dud with more anglers than salmon. (FYI – This is a water forecast, so check before making your trip up here).

When will the BIG RUN of King and Coho Salmon happen this year on the Salmon River?

When fishing for King and Coho Salmon on the Salmon River. There isn’t a Guarantee for when the BIG RUN of Salmon well happen. When looking at the past 40 years, it only “suggest’s” what Monthly time period is normally, but not always, the most consistent year after year for the BIG RUN or Bulk of King and Coho Salmon to enter the Salmon River.

Early to mid. Sept. Salmon fishing “usually” means less anglers and normally less fish. But, we’ve had early BIG RUN’s (2,000 – 3,000 Salmon in a day) mid. Sept. with the balance of Salmon entering thru the rest of Sept. into Oct.

Normally, Prime Time is the last week of Sept. and first week of Oct. for the BIG RUN to happen. But, we’ve had late BIG RUN’s of Salmon and mid. Oct. was great on the Salmon River!

Normally, the 2nd and 3rd week of Oct. your targeting all the King and Coho Salmon that have already entered and settled into their primary Fall Habitats. Top to Bottom of the Salmon River, spread out.

So its tuff to forecast, but late Sept. and early Oct. is over all normally the best – most consistent 2 weeks for the BIG RUN of King and Coho Salmon to happen on the Salmon River. Don’t be surprised if there are a couple other anglers fishing during these 2 weeks. – har har.


Salmon River Guide fishing for Steelhead, King Salmon, Coho Salmon and Brown Trout.

Fishing Steelhead (avg. 8 to 12 lbs.) – (Nov. thru April.)

Our Steelhead are without a doubt. One of the hardest fighting and most acrobatic fish that swims in the Salmon River in Pulaski NY. Torpedo – Silver Bullet runs and changing direction in a blink of an eye. While taking your line 100 to 200 feet out in seconds. This well surely jump start your fishing heart! Tarpon jumps, like a rocket ship 3-4 feet in the air. Somersaulting like a jugglers baton back to earths atmosphere before splash down. Sounding like a cinder block with water spraying 20 feet in all directions. Steelhead Tail Walks across the pool for 40 to 60 feet, will live in your Salmon River memory forever!

What’s the Forecast for this Salmon River Steelhead Season? I’m glad you asked!

Good #’s in Lake Ontario this Summer!
They easily met their egg quota last Spring at the Salmon River Altmar fish hatchery with an over abundance of returning Steelhead.
Last Steelhead Season (Nov. thru April) the fishing was over-all pretty good, by most standards.
We didn’t see a bunch of dying steelhead daily, like we all did a few years ago. We saw very normal #’s of 0, 1 or 2 per day on the Salmon River.
The DEC has been working hard for the last few years to try to correct the Vitamin B deficiency that the steelhead get from eating all those alewives in Lake Ontario.
Seems to be working!
In Closing: My Crystal Ball says it will be a Good Steelhead Season. Aren’t you glad you asked?

When is the BEST time to fish for Salmon River Steelhead?

Mid-week is always best, but not on or around a holiday.

There really isn’t any BEST for Steelhead, as we always have them in the Salmon River from Oct. thru May. Its all angler personal preference.

I start guiding for them at the end of Oct. Which means Less Salmon River Anglers targeting Steelhead = more opportunity for you.

In Nov. we start to see more Steelhead and more Salmon River anglers. It’s the busiest angler Month. Temps. aren’t to cold yet and its also when the steelhead fight the hardest. With speeding bullet runs, tail walks and somersaults.

In Dec. we start to see even more Steelhead and less Salmon River anglers. Most folks are doing business and family holiday stuff. And its a lil colder = Less anglers = more opportunity for you.

The middle of the Winter can be magical with only the most die hard Salmon River Steelhead anglers out. During these colder Mo’s. = Less anglers = more opportunity for you.

Spring Steelhead. (Feb., Mar. and April.) With higher Spring “Run-off” water levels, this brings in the balance of our Steelhead. Adding even MORE steelhead into the river. It starts to warm and we see a few more anglers out, but not as many as November. The Steelhead’s appetites are on fire as they slowly drop back down the Salmon River to lake Ontario. Sight fishing is an optional treat.

Where is the BEST place to Fish on the Salmon River for Salmon, Steelhead and Brown Trout? Enjoy my Expert YouTube Fishing Tutorial Video’s for your Guaranteed BEST fishing opportunities.

3 Basic fishing ways to locate and target Your Salmon River Salmon and Steelhead.

1. When the Salmon and steelhead are running the Salmon River. Fish there “Temporary Transitional Resting Spots” as they make there way up the Salmon River. Otherwise, you are fishing to Salmon or Steelhead that are not stopping, decreasing your odds greatly. Tutorial Video on Temporary Transitional Resting Spots.

2. Once the Steelhead or Salmon stop running the Salmon River to hold during the middle of the day. – (From approx. 9:30am. to 5:30pm.) Fish these “Prime Transitional Holding Spots”.
Tutorial Video on Prime Transitional Holding Spots.

3. Once the Salmon or steelhead have stopped running the Salmon River. And have found a spot that satisfies all their survival instincts. Fish these “Prime Holding Spots” – (Pools). Normally, the most fish and they aren’t going anywhere soon. Tutorial Video on Prime Holding Spots – Pools.

4 Advanced fishing ways to locate and target Your Salmon River Salmon and Steelhead.

Tutorial Video on EXPERT Fish Locating Habitat. – (These are areas I look for on the Salmon River when guiding folks like yourself.)

4. Find a spot that is a combination of all 1 thru 3. (Or, a spot that has all 3 in close proximity. So you can jump around according to what the Salmon or Steelhead are telling you to do.)

5. Combine 1 thru 4 and find a spot above a looong stretch of rapids. The fish get tired after running these Salmon River rapids and will hold here for an extended period of time.

6. Include 1 thru 5 and make sure that your spot has 98% of the Salmon or Steelhead in a transitional stage. Move into it. (Funnel or Pinch point in the river.)

7. My #1 Spot! Combine 1 thru 6 and pick a spot that compresses and or concentrates them. On a dime, like a sardine can, trash can lid or the size of a Volkswagen beetle or bus. This cuts down on all the guess work. And it allows to to present your offering to all the Steelhead and Salmon on every drift.

8. The VERY BEST place to Salmon or Steelhead fish? Is anywhere I’m not! yukyuk

By utilizing the above. You will have the most Steelhead or Salmon in front of you for the greatest period of time. In a concentrated area offering you the greatest opportunity to present your offering to ALL of them. Fish ON and ON and ON! Now you know what “This Salmon River Fishing Guide” look’s for normally.

Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming.

Places the Salmon stop and rest at while running the Salmon River – Current Breaks.

1 Head of the hole.
2 The seams on either side of the main flow in the hole. (Thats where the fast water meets the slow or what we call frog water)
3 Any big boulders or large rocks in the hole.
4 Deepest part of the hole will hold Salmon.
5 Tail of the hole.
6 The seam on the inside bend of the River.
7 Behind a shallow area that breaks the current.
8 Any big rocks or boulders that are in the deepest part of the River that the Salmon use to navigate it.
9 A lil 4 to 6 inch drop in the Rivers bottom.
10 Tree’s that have fallen into the River that are creating a seam.

To simplify all this, the Salmon use all the current breaks in the River. BUT, probably 90% of the river they simply swim thru it and don’t stop. These areas should be avoided like the plague. As Lou Tabory once said, There is a LOT of empty water out there.

What makes all Salmon River Current Breaks so interesting and challenging to understand as a angler are.

1 Some CBs are only used by the fish while in a Trans. Stage while running up the River or down it. Some for only a few seconds, minutes to all day.
2 Some CBs are used for several days, an entire Month to 5-6 months on the River.
3 Some CBs are only used in the Fall before the water temp. drops. Some CBs are only used during the Winter, after the water temp. has dropped. And finally some CBs are only used during the Fall for Salmon, November for Brown Trout and the Spring for Steelhead. So some CBs are only used during certain stages of the fish’s life.
4. Some CBs are only used during certain water flow levels. Low, medium and high water changes the CBs that the fish key in on and use. Our water levels are always changing and the fish change along with it and so should you.

Folks, What makes an experienced steelhead or salmon angler on the Salmon River?

One of the most critically important things is to have is a complete and thorough understanding of is Current Breaks, and when and how the Salmon and Steelhead use them. This knowledge will definitely put YOU into the 10% of the anglers that catch 90% of the fish, here on the Salmon River.

I sincerely hope you found my Salmon and steelhead “Guide Tips”  Entertainingly Informative or Mildly Education. And helps you to better understand these productive fishing Current Breaks and helps you to catch more fish.
May all YOUR doorknobs smell of BIG Salmon, Steelhead and Brown Trout!

Salmon River King and Coho Salmon, Brown Trout and Steelhead Fishing Seasons.

Sept. – Oct.
King and Coho Salmon. Every Fall the River sees epic runs of King Salmon and Coho Salmon from September through October when anglers can try their hand at some of the Largest freshwater game fish in the world. Our King Salmon range up to 30 pounds, with many Salmon pushing past 20 pounds. Our Coho Salmon average 8 to 12 pounds, with many larger.

Nov. Best – but also Year Round.
Brown Trout. They have entered the River to spawn in Nov. and will weight from 3-5 lbs. with some reaching 10 pounds!

October 20 – May 1.
Steelhead 8-15 lbs. The Fall Steelhead is without a doubt, one of the hardest fighting Fish that swims in the Salmon River. They’ll take most of your line out in seconds, then jump start your heart with tail walking antics that will live in your memory forever.

Winter Steelhead Fishing on the Salmon River.

This is one of my favorite fishing times of the year. With colder temperatures the crowds disappear. Steelhead continue to come into the River from the lake. A Winter Drift Boat trip aboard our heated Drift Boat is a great way to learn the Salmon River and experience it’s beauty.

The end of February, March and April are great Steelhead Fishing days as new Fish move into and out of the River on a daily basis. As the river temperatures rise, so does the aggressiveness of the Steelhead. Often, sight fishing is possible as they move into the shallows.
We can Spin or Fly Fish for Steelhead either by wading or using the Drift Boat.

I invite you to join me and enjoy what is an unquestionably one of the finest fresh water fisheries in the eastern United States.

Drift Boat Fishing Guide Testimonial – Dear Whitakers Sports Store and Motel,

Rob Martinsen and I engaged Randy Jones’ Drift Boat Guide services to fish for Salmon on the River. This was the second time this year we had been guided by Randy, the first time was for steelhead. Both drift boat outings proved very productive in regards to both fish hooked and fishing knowledge gained. We can count on one hand how many fish we would have caught on our own. Most importantly were the fishing skills we were taught and the insights into the fish.

Randy was both professional and knowledgeable. He intimately understood the topography of the River and the fish’s behavior within it. And was open in sharing his knowledge with us. He tailored his help to our individual skill levels. He was prompt and dedicated to teaching us as much as we could absorb. We enjoyed your accommodations and plan on staying with you next spring. Best regards, William Au
