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

It’s Prime Time for some Winter into Spring Steelhead fishing on the Salmon River in Pulaski NY.

We’ve had steelhead entering the Salmon River all Fall into Mid-Winter. With an increase of fresh steelhead since early Feb. to present. Matter of fact, there are some more fresh steelhead entering the Salmon River now, as I type this. Spreading out top to bottom of the river. Things couldn’t be looking any better for your trip up here!

With our present and future “forecasted” above average air temps. and “current” perfect water level for wade fishing. I’d recommend coming  up to steelhead fish now. (Please check water levels before making your trip up here).

Most folks are tangling with a few. Sometimes more and sometimes less, as usual.

Presently all of the steelhead in the Salmon River are feeling their biological clock ticking towards the Spring Spawn, making them behave a lil differently. (Finding mates and pairing up, thinking about building a red, locating themselves to different current break area’s, males fighting over the females, etc….) Each stage is unique and puts different requirements on the fish and causes the angler to adjust, in my opinion.

We are finding some Steelhead in their Prime Transitional Holding Spots where they rest mid-day, while running the Salmon River. With a continuation of the highest % of Steelhead in their Prime Winter Holding Pools. Starting to see a little spawning activity with a couple of drop back steelhead being caught.
The above areas to steelhead fish are covered more thoroughly towards the bottom of this Blog in my EXPERT and ADVANCED Tutorial Video’s @ Where is the BEST place to Fish on the Salmon River for Steelhead and Brown Trout?

Feb. 17 Current Salmon River Water Flow Level and Forecast.
Approx. 500 CFS – Please keep an eye on your Water Flow levels. They will most likely go up with our 10 day forecast that has a fair amount of rain in it.

There really is no bad place to fish, providing you have the correct habitat – current breaks for this water flow and water temp.

All in all, things are shaping up very nicely for some SUPERB Spring steelhead fishing!

Best Fish’s,

Over this Steelhead season my guest’s have hooked-up.

1 – A few slow days of 1 to 3 steelhead.
2 – Ok – Normal days of 4 to 7 steelhead.
3 – Some AMAZING days with 10-12-14 and 17 steelhead!
4 – Most of our steelhead have been 6 to 9 lb’s. With some in the teens.


Pre-Spawn and Spawning Steelhead on the Salmon River.

Fresh Runs – We always have a fresh run of steelhead into the Salmon River at this time of the year. Their biological clock is ticking and telling them its that time in there life to re-produce. Causing fresh steelhead to enter, run and spread out over the entire length of the Salmon River.

Early Spawners – This is the time of the year where we start to see our first, what I call early spawners. Why is this important to you as a steelhead angler?

Steelhead Pairing up in the Holes – Often at this time of the year where you are blind casting, you will tie into 1 steelhead. There will often be a second or a third in the exact same spot, as they find a mate and pair up.
So normally where there is one steelhead, there is often another one or two. So cover your water thoroughly to increase your odds. (Almost every female steelhead in the Salmon River will have 1 to 5 males in very close proximity).
This tip comes with a $ back guarantee! My guest’s and myself have all bought that T shirt. It happens more than you would think!

Spreading out – This is the time of the year where the entire river comes alive. From the shallows, to the edges of the pools to the pools themselves.
You’ll be able to find steelhead from the Top of the Salmon River to the Bottom. From one side of the river to the other, within reason. The entire Salmon River comes alive.

Funny Salmon River drift boat guide fishing report Humor.

First person on the spot gets it. I’ve been beat’n to special Salmon River 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 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.

Spring Run Off Tip for Steelhead Fishing the Salmon River.

The one thing I have not heard anyone talk about yet is Spring run-off. We always hope for a slow steady melt and not all at once. Usually each Spring the Salmon River will flood for a 3-7 day period.
This is one thing you should always be keeping an eye on and be prepared for.
Having a back up plan in case the Salmon River floods. Knowing other smaller bodies of water. Or, knowing where the steelhead in the Salmon River move to. This is normally one of the keys to your fishing success when the Salmon River gets flooded and could possibly save your steelhead trip up here. 🙂

Fishing Report Guide Tips – Tying Salmon River Egg Sacks for Steelhead.

Steelhead Love Egg sacks. Here are some guide tips if your tying up some egg sacks for your Salmon River Steelhead.
Natural color of eggs or Natural egg cure is considered the best color over-all.
Fall and Spring egg sack size – normally quarter sized.
Winter – Dime sized (2-5 eggs).

Over-all Best colors of mess netting.
Pink for fresh steelhead.
Blue for Winter steelhead.
Chartreuse for dirty water.
White and cream-(peach).

Im a believer in not transferring my negative human scent thru the entire egg sack tying process. I wear surgical gloves.
Break an egg when putting egg sack on the hook, so it milks. 5 minutes later, twist hook to break another egg.

Why are 100% of the Steelhead Current Breaks so important to you as a Salmon River angler?

I’m glad you asked! 😉

First off – A Current Break is a speed of water change, caused by structure or water flow.

All the steelhead in the Salmon River use Current Breaks to conserve energy and rest. Whether they are running the Salmon River, holding mid-day, holding in a pool, spawning or for Spring Steelhead dropping back down the Salmon River to Lake Ontario.

Primarily as steelhead angler’s we are hunters. Our goal when steelhead fishing is to find our quarries weaknesses and then exploit them. Since all the steelhead in the Salmon River use these critically important Prime Structural – speed of water Current Breaks, then so should you for Best Results.

Prime Examples of Resting C.B.s that our Salmon River steelhead will use.
Head of the Pool.
The seams on either side of the main flow in the Pool. (A seam is where the fast water meets the slow water).
Any big boulders or large rocks in the Pool.
Deepest part of the Pool.
Tail of the Pool or Run. (If the deepest part of the Pool or Run is in the tail, then keep that spot to yourself!) 😉
A change of the main water flow speed in the larger pools.
Normally
Low water – fish the head of the pool.
Medium – fish the middle of the pool.
High water – fish the tail of the pool.

The seam on the inside bend of the river.
Behind a shallow area that breaks the current.
Behind any big rocks or boulders that are in the Rapids creating a pocket that is in the deepest part of the Salmon River that the fish use to navigate it.
Did you know that normally, all fish use the current and the deepest part of the Salmon River to navigate it? It’s like a road map and rarely changes. By studying this road map, it will provide you with Lots of optional steelhead fishing opportunities.
A lil 4 to 6 inch drop in the rivers bottom.
Tree’s that have fallen into the Salmon River that are creating a seam.

Today’s Salmon River Current Break Test Q.
What’s the #1 determining factor for how long a Steelhead will Hold on a Current Break?
It’s the quality of the CB.
Other factors – Weather, bright sun or dark rainy over cast day. Time of day. A change in water Temperature. A change in the depth and speed of water. What it had to go thru to get there. Spawning or not.
Angler fishing pressure, which includes visual and audible noise by anglers.

We Interrupt this program to bring you.

Pulaski NY pretty girl fishing report joke from the Salmon River.

Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming. 😉

What makes many Steelhead, Salmon and Brown Trout Current Breaks challenging to understand as a Salmon River angler?

Some CBs are only used by the fish while in a Transitional Stage while running up the Salmon River. Some for only a few seconds, minutes to all day.
Some CBs are only used for several days, an entire Month to 5-6 months.
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.
Some CBs are only used during the Fall for Salmon, November for Brown Trout and the Spring for Steelhead.
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 Salmon River water levels are always changing and the fish change along with it and so should you for Best Results.

So our CBs are used during certain water temps., certain water flow levels, when running the river and stages of the fish’s life.

Folks, what makes an Experienced Steelhead Salmon angler or a Salmon River Guide on the Salmon River?
One of the most critically important things to have is a Complete and Thorough understanding of is CBs and when and how the fish use them.
This knowledge will definitely help put YOU into the 10% of the anglers that catch 90% of the fish, here on the Salmon River.

Mike’s Salmon River Steelhead Fishing Report.

Hi Randy, No amount of words can express my gratitude for a very enjoyable steelhead fishing trip filled with patience and the knowledge gained of the fish and Salmon River habitat. The steelhead we caught was a bonus!
After our drift boat trip ended, my son and I went back to the first hole we fished with you in the morning and he landed (on his first cast) a gorgeous 32 inch male steelhead that was a nice silver/chrome. I watched in amazement as he was flawlessly doing everything you taught him during our trip….from the cast placement, drift technique, to playing the fish into the calmer water. We fished that hole for an hour and had 5 more hook ups with 2 more steelhead landed, all of which were very bright colored. We moved to the second hole we had fished with you and played with another 3 steelhead over a 30 minute period, but didn’t land them. Over the course of the day with you and by ourselves we played with a total of 16 steelhead!
You are truly in a class of your own with knowledge and patience. I am looking forward to our April trip for my father’s 75th birthday…Thanks again for everything. Mike Greer

HI Mike, Thanks very much for your kind and generous words. I had a blast! Glad you went back to where you knew the water the best and had much success! That’s about the highest form of an unspoken compliment that any guide could ask for. 🙂 We will try to leave a few steelhead in the river for your return trip here in April 😉 Best fish’s, Randy

Trophy Steelhead Salmon River Drift Boat Fishing Testimonial:

Hi Randy; Well you did it again, only this time a little better. The knowledge you taught us on the drift boat. Allowed us to catch and land many Steelhead on our own. We went 2 for 6 on Steelhead. Skip was the first to hook up and he landed a nice female Steelhead. It gave him quite the fight! We left the first fishing spot you showed us and went to another one and it was my turn. I hooked up three times with one nice female Steelhead coming to the net. She was almost as big as the male Steelhead I caught the day before with you on the drift boat. Once again you came through for us. We now have the confidence to find the Steelhead and catch them on our own, Skip and John

Winter into Spring – Steelhead Fishing Creeks, Streams and the Salmon River. 

End of Feb., March and all of April is “Prime Time” for steelhead fishing on the Salmon River and other optional local creeks and streams.
(Mid-week is always best, but not on or around a holiday).

Feb. and March – There are not only leftover Winter steelhead, but also fresh runs of Spring time steelhead.

March into April – You will see a transition of Steelhead from the holes onto the gravel, where they will spawn. If they survive the spawning ritual, they will then turn into drop-back Steelhead. The Steelhead’s appetites are on fire as they slowly drop back down the Salmon River into lake Ontario.

When the Salmon River is running high due to run off. Its prime time to walk and fish the many miles of streams and creeks in the area. Ever try to land a 10 pound Steelhead in a small creek? It’s not easy, but lots of fun! Sight fishing is also and optional treat!

Spring Steelhead Spawn and Drop Back Steelhead fishing on the Salmon River.

(Drop backs are Spring Steelhead that have successfully spawned. And are on their way back down the Salmon River to Lake Ontario, Feeding aggressively along the way.)

What’s interesting about the Salmon River at this time of year. The Steelhead we have are spread out over 100% of the Spring habitat’s thru out the entire river. Top to bottom and from 1 side to the other, within reason.

Drop back Steelhead will be in all the normal current break spots for the current water level.
The Flats will be exploding with fish! (within reason.) Sight fishing is an optional treat!

Your Best fishing opportunity is all Spring until approx. 3rd week or last week of April, normally. Maybe first – second week of May? In May, fish the lowest part of the Salmon River for your best Steelhead fishing opportunities. (From the Papermill down thru the D.S.R.)

Where is the BEST place to Fish on the Salmon River for 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 Steelhead.

1. When the 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 Steelhead that are not stopping, decreasing your odds greatly. Tutorial Video on Temporary Transitional Resting Spots.

2. Once the Steelhead 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 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 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 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 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 on every drift.

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

By utilizing the above. You will have the most Steelhead 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 Guide” look’s for normally.

My Video Jokes for Today.


Look for a current break that is effecting your spot. Could be a seem (where the fast water meets the slow water), that will hold Chrome in a hole. Or a shallow spot that creates your current break, causing the fish to sit below it. A BIG rock or boulder in the hole is always a prime holding location. This change in water speed can be as simple as where the water goes from fast to slow in a pool. If the Tail of the Pool has a Hole in it, then keep THAT spot to yourself.

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!

Nice Brown Trout landed on the Salmon River, Pulaski NY.

Fishing Brown Trout. (avg. 3-5 lbs.)

You can catch these Brown Trout anytime while fishing for Steelhead. Like Salmon and Steelhead you measure our Brown Trout by the pound and not by the inch. While they are not as numerous as Salmon or Steelhead.

These are an optional Trophy of a Fishing life time!

Salmon River Brown Trout and Steelhead Fishing Seasons:

October 15 – November
Brown Trout. Like Salmon and Steelhead you measure these Fish by the pound and not by the inch. They have entered the river to spawn and will weight from 3-10 pounds. While they are not as numerous as the Salmon or the Steelhead, these are an optional Trophy of a Fishing life time.

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.

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 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.
