Jan. 3 2019 Salmon River Fishing Report Steelhead – Highlights.

A nice BIG RUN of fresh dime bright silver missile Steelhead entered and ran the Salmon River during our last high water period ending on Dec. 8. Most experienced Steelhead bank anglers did very well, including my drift boat clients. I was seeing 50% bright fresh Steelhead and 50% older – darker Steelhead. These newly arrived fresh Steelhead fought like a Nov. Steelhead, with speeding bullet runs, numerous somersaults, tail walks across the pool and traveling 10 feet thru the air before splash down. AMAZING! While the older Steelhead gave us the normal sluggish cold water temp. fight.

Over my last 10 Salmon River Guide drift boat trips during this period my guests were averaging 6-9 Steelhead fought. With 1 slow day of only 2 Steelhead (Ouch!) and 1 AMAZING day of well over a dozen steelhead! – (Lost track of #’s, don’t you hate when that happens?) 😉

Current high water is bringing in even more fresh Steelhead – AS I TYPE THIS! Once this higher water flow drops to a more wade angler “friendly” level. I’d highly suggest coming up! Here is the NEW Salmon River Water level link to help you keep track. You will not only have older steelhead that have been entering since Oct. But also that last big push, plus the ones that are running the Salmon River now.

Today’s Salmon River Fishing Report Steelhead Tip. – The Pools are fishing best along with their soft water seams. With some transitional (running the river) Steelhead holding in their middle of the day resting spots between 9:30am. and 6pm. Don’t forget about the pockets in the rapids where some transitional steelhead will hold for a short amount of time. These pockets are over looked by the average Steelhead angler that simply walks by them! – hint.

Steelhead Opportunity’s Abound! – With the past Rain, above freezing temps. and Snow Run-off, causing higher water flows. Optional Local Creeks and Streams are with fresh runs of Steelhead.

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

End of Feb., March and all of April can be “prime time” for steelhead spin or fly fishing. As there is not only leftover Winter steelhead, but also fresh runs of Spring time steelhead. Winter thaws and early spring rains generate runs of steelhead. When the Salmon River is running high due to run off. Its prime time to walk 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!

We had 4 day’s of fighting between 9 and 14 Salmon River Steelhead daily! – Ya-HOO! With 1 to 2 anglers on the drift boat using Spinning rods, Fly Rods or Floats. Using beads, egg sacks and aquatic insect fly imitations all dead drifted to match the middle to bottom current speed. So it would look natural to the steelhead.

Salmon River Fishing Report for Steelhead fishing w/ Pulaski NY guide. Oct. 21, 2018 – Highlights.

Better Steelhead and Brown Trout #’s around on the Salmon River in Pulaski NY. King and Coho Salmon fishing winding down.
The Start of Steelhead season is looking good!! We are seeing more Steelhead daily on the Salmon River, with many more to come!

Salmon River fishing report Guide Tip. – With decent #’s of Steelhead entering, running and spreading out on the Salmon River for late Oct.  You might try coming up now thru the end of Oct. before the Nov. Steelhead crowds arrive. As I floated the Salmon River in the guide drift boat, many Steelhead spots were WIDE OPEN! (mid-week). While other larger Steelhead spots, only had 1-2 anglers targeting Steelhead.

For the last month, Steelhead have been entering the Salmon River to eat ALL the King and Coho Salmon eggs.

These #’s of Steelhead will increase in Nov. (along with more anglers). November is also when the Brown Trout will spawn. Dropping their eggs that the Steelhead will also target.

In December, we will see even more steelhead. The Bonus of Steelhead fishing in December is you will see less angler’s and drift boat guides fishing due to colder temp’s. and the upcoming Holiday’s. Offering you greater Steelhead fishing opportunities on the Salmon River.

The rest of the Steelhead will enter when there biological clock tells them too. Or, when we have a higher water release from the Salmon River dam or Natural run-off.

Presently, If you can hook 1 or 2 Steelhead in a day you did good. 3-4 in a day, you did great!
Some Steelhead anglers are doing bigger #’s.
Things are looking Good, for your upcoming Steelhead and Brown Trout fishing adventures on the Salmon River.
