Salmon River Fishing Report Pulaski NY. Sept. 28, 2022.
BIG Fishing RUN OF SALMON started Tuesday afternoon on the Salmon River in Pulaski NY.
And the fishing RUN continued all of Wed. 9/28/2022. BEST SALMON RUN of the season!
Due to past heavy rain – run-off and a higher water release of 750cfs from the Salmon River dam.
With a DSR (mouth of river) report of. – Salmon poured into the river in jaw-dropping numbers on Wed.
With another report of. – The run of kings is insane today ..non stop all day!
Todays 100% Guaranteed Tip. – King Salmon travel 1 to 3 miles per day. If a good run of Salmon enters the Salmon River.
You can leap frog that good run all the way to the top of the Salmon River. On a daily basis, over a 6-7 day period. For those in the know, it works!
GREAT NEWS! Up until Tues. afternoon. We were receiving our normal numbers of Salmon daily for Mid. to Late Sept.
Mostly it’s been. 50 – 75 to 100 Salmon entering the river each day. To include both low-light periods.
With approx. 4 days of 150 to 300 Salmon. To include both low-light periods.
DANGEROUS water levels for most of the river for wade anglers. DO NOT TRY TO CROSS THE RIVER!
They are releasing 750cfs from the dam, plus run-off.
Orwell creek is blown out with approx. 750cfs of chocolate colored water coming into the river.
Pineville live gauge is approx. 1,600cfs. Which includes Orwell creek.
Trout Brook is blown out with approx. 750cfs of chocolate colored water coming into the river.
Which leaves an approx. water flow level of over 2,000cfs in the lower river. Plus run-off. With Fudge colored water.
1. Try the head waters of our local creeks, brooks and streams. Which will have less water input and cleaner water.
2. Fish anywhere above Orwell creek on the Salmon River. Which will have less water input and cleaner water.
We have no rain in the forecast for the next 11 days. So the river’s water level will eventually drop and clean up.
Up until Tues. afternoon. Most of the Salmon were entering the mouth of the Salmon River and running the river during the evening low-light period.
Settling into the mid. to upper DSR to include the lower Town area. The following day, these Salmon would then run thru Town and up threw the Ball Park area and above.
From here on out. – Always a chance for a MAJOR RUN of 1,000 to 3,000 King and Coho Salmon entering daily over a 1-5 day period from Late Sept. into early Oct.
All the Major Holes on the Salmon River are holding Salmon. Top to bottom of river.
Rapids continue to produce.
Some Salmon in their middle of the day resting locations.
A few Salmon have hit the gravel. With more by the day from here on out.
THESE ARE THE SALAD DAYS!

Did You Know?
There were sooooo many Cohos at the top of the river. That they put them in a truck and drove them back to the bottom of the river and made them run the Salmon River all over again. True story?

Salmon River Fishing Report Pulaski NY. Sept. 7, 2022.
It’s Heating Up! With your first decent fishing runs of Salmon River King Salmon for early Sept. 2022 in Pulaski NY.
Over the last week, we received different #’s of Salmon entering the river on each individual day.
Providing a mix of low #’s – ok #’s to good #’s of Salmon. For this early in the season.
Over last weekend when they increased the water flow to 750cfs on the Salmon River.
We received an increase in the number of King and Coho Salmon entering and running the river.
(Which is normal) Nothing to get excited about (in my opinion), but its a start for this early.
Sunday and Monday were the 2 best days!
No big runs or major runs. Just a couple of ok to good runs for this early in the season.
The DSR saw the most fish. And as you got further up river into the Ball Park area. You had less fish, due to many Salmon stopping and holding in the Major Pools. That are below the Ball Park area.
The Ball Park area saw the best fishing during both low light periods. To include, small pods on the move throughout the day depending on where you fished.
In closing, there were enough Salmon to give all anglers opportunity, who were fishing the lower river. Ye-Haa!
Some of these Salmon are now working there way further up the river. They will run 1 to 3 miles per day.
Not worth a special trip yet. The river is not loaded, but they are around. We still have a TON of Salmon yet to come.
As Usual for this early. The largest #’s of Salmon are in the lower rivers Major Pools.
If you were to go fishing, I’d recommend anywhere from 2A down river.
Keep your expectations on low and any fish you caught would be a BONUS! Theirs a few around, never know…
Good reports out on the Eastern part of Lake Ontario from the Charter boats. More King and Coho Salmon are arriving daily.
Salmon fishing on the Lake has been over all good with some Lake Trout, Steelhead and Brown Trout in the mix.
Future Fishing Forecast. – Possibility of ok to good runs happening Monday thru Thursday with approx. 50% chance of rain with mostly over cast cloudy days.
Did you know?
Nothing makes a fish bigger than almost being caught.
(9/7/2022 AP) The N.Y. State D.E.C. just came out with a new report about 1 MAJOR side effect of eating these King Salmon. – Genital shrinkage!
Unfortunately, I’ve experienced it! har har.
BREAKING NEWS! – The State plans to stock more Salmon this year to help feed the Orcas in Lake Ontario.
If you lie about the size of your fish, I’ll swear to it!
There will be no King Salmon fishing in the cemetery. So you better do your fishing now, while your still able.
TOP SECRET (edited) FISHING REPORT. – LOADED with Salmon!
I went 3 for 6 on King Salmon @ (edited for content) in the afternoon. All were caught using (edited for content).
This morning I fished the (edited for content) and was 2 for 5 on Salmon using (edited for content).
The last spot I fished was LOADED with Salmon @ (edited for content). – har har.
Salmon River Fishing HUMOR. – When you accidentally hook a fish in the butt, what do we say about that fish?
It had a very fast digestive trac. It ate it and then it got stuck on its way out.
Anywaaaaays, that’s my fishing report for today and I’m sticking with it.
No fish were hurt in the writing of this report. I’m a trained professional, so please do not try this at home.
The lights go out but the river does not sleep. There be monsters in there, and I’ll try again tomorrow.

Salmon River Fishing Report Pulaski NY. August 8, 2022.
EXCITING Salmon River Increased King Salmon and Steelhead Stocking 2022 Fishing NEWS from Pulaski NY.
“Big Rivers” approach for Steelhead and Salmon stocking allocations! – Lake Ontario Salmon and Trout Stocking Strategy 2022-2026.
This approach directs stocking toward developing major steelhead and salmon fisheries in large Lake Ontario tributaries. Which includes the Salmon River.
What does this mean for you? Increased stocking of Steelhead and King Salmon in the Salmon River system.
Many smaller Tribs. will no longer get stocked with these 2 species, as in the past. So those #’s will be stocked in the Salmon River.
JC Clark Asks. – If Im understanding this right, stocking numbers for steelhead are not being increased. However more of the stated # of steelhead stocked will be fish that return to the Salmon River as a product of concentrating higher % of the total fish in larger rivers to increase angler opportunity where most people fish?
David Agness Replies. – Yes. I sat on the stake holder committee for these stocking changes and priorities. Many smaller tribs. that got moderate stocks of steelhead and king salmon have been eliminated to concentrate fish to larger rivers which sees much greater usage and has greater access.
Those small streams set aside will still see migratory strays and they all tend to get healthy brown trout migrations.

Randy, what’s the Forecast for this Salmon River NY Steelhead Fishing Season?
Good #’s of Steelhead in Lake Ontario this Summer!
Did you know? – With the New D.E.C. minimum size of 25 inches to keep 1 Steelhead, per person, per day.
This length size change is going to put 2 more year classes of Steelhead in the Salmon River for you! Ya-Hoo!
They easily met their egg quota last Spring at the Salmon River NY Altmar fish hatchery. With an over abundance of returning Steelhead.
Last Steelhead Season (Nov. thru April) the steelhead fishing was over-all pretty good, by most standards.
In Closing: My Crystal Ball says it will be a Good Steelhead fishing Season. Aren’t you glad you asked?
Salmon River Fall, Winter, Spring and April Steelhead fishing Pulaski NY.
Mid-week is always best for Steelhead fishing, but not on or around a holiday.
There really isn’t any BEST time for Steelhead fishing on the Salmon River in Pulaski NY. As we always have Steelhead in the River all Fall, Winter, Spring and April.
Its all angler personal preference.
I start guiding for Steelhead at the end of Oct. Which means Less Fall 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 Winter 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 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 Pre-Spawn Steelhead. Adding even MORE steelhead into the Salmon River. After they Spawn, 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.

I got a fish’n pole for my wife…… Best trade I ever made.
100% of the Salmon River steelhead are feeling their biological clock ticking towards the Spring Spawn. Making the Steelhead behave a lil differently, depending on what Stage of the Spawn they are in.
Currently, you have Steelhead in ALL 3 stages of the spawn.
1. Pre-spawn steelhead.
2. Spawning steelhead.
3. Post Spawn Drop Back steelhead.
Each stage is unique and puts different requirements on the Steelhead and causes the angler to adjust, in my opinion.
Spring Steelhead fishing on the Salmon River NY is Superb. You will have Spring Steelhead fishing from the Lower Salmon River to the Upper Salmon River NY thru April. Along with better than normal #’s of Brown Trout.
Catch more Spring Steelhead when your fishing Pulaski NY. When your Steelhead fishing in the Spring in Pulaski NY. It’s a Great time to Steelhead fish anything egg related.
Drop Back Spring Steelhead will sit directly behind spawning Steelhead to eat their eggs. Or sit behind the first current break directly below these spawning steelhead. To feed on any Steelhead eggs that float by them.
The entire Salmon River becomes a smorgasbord of an “All You Can Eat Egg Buffet” from spawning Steelhead. And its the easiest food for the drop back Steelhead to get, with lil to no energy expended.
April is one of the Best Times to go Steelhead fishing on the Salmon River NY. During the April Salmon River Steelhead fishing season. The April Steelhead spawning urges will take over on the river. And move the Steelhead to the Salmon River gravel. Once they finish spawning, they will turn into Hungry Post Spawn – drop back steelhead. When your Steelhead fishing in April. These are some of the easiest to catch Steelhead all season.
When our Local Creeks and Streams are running high due to snow and rain run-off in the Spring. These will provide you with optional Spring Steelhead fishing waters.
There really is no bad place to fish, providing you have the correct habitat – current breaks for this water flow, water temp. and the stage of life the Steelhead are in.
(Pre-spawn – Spawn and Post Spawn Drop Backs).
Spring Steelhead Guarantee – February, March and April Steelhead fishing Salmon River Pulaski NY.
February, March and April are great Spring Steelhead Fishing days in Pulaski NY. With fresh Spring steelhead fishing runs in Pulaski NY. Their biological clock is telling them its time to re-produce. Causing fresh Spring steelhead to enter, run and spread out over the entire Salmon River.
Most of the Older and Spring Steelhead will remain in the Salmon River fishing Pools thru February and March in Pulaski NY. As the Spring Salmon River water temperatures rises, so does the aggressiveness of the Steelhead.
All Salmon River NY Spring Steelhead fishing methods will work. Whether your Steelhead float fishing, spin fishing, fly fishing or spey fishing in Pulaski NY.
Pre-Spawn Spring Steelhead fishing. Why is this important to you as a Salmon River angler? Spring Steelhead will be Pairing up in the Pools to prepare to spawn in Pulaski NY. Almost every female steelhead in the Salmon River will have 1 to 5 males in very close proximity or no more than 6 feet away. Often at this time of the year when you are blind casting, you will tie into 1 steelhead. There will often be a second or a third Steelhead in the exact same spot.
So normally where there is one steelhead, there is often another one or two. So cover your water thoroughly to increase your odds.
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!
Did you Know this about our Spring Female Steelhead? – By Catch and Releasing a Spring female Steelhead back into the Salmon River pool, you can usually keep on catching the Males. If you keep the female or fight her way down stream. All those males have no reason to hang around any longer and they will leave, looking for another mate. This leaves you with no more steelhead to catch.
Just like reeeel life, that female is the bait and is the only reason those buck’s are hanging around.
It’s similar to “last call” at the bar. Once the last girl leaves, you know longer have a reason to hang around. yukyuk
Spring Steelhead Spreading out as the Entire Salmon River comes Alive. With Spring Pre-Spawn Steelhead, Spawning Steelhead and Drop Back Steelhead in Pulaski NY.

Perfect Storm Scenario for all those steelhead and brown trout to enter the Salmon River now.
Higher Water. Plenty of days of cold rain and low light. Cooler days and night temp. And TONS of Salmon eggs in the river.
The Brown Trout spawn in Nov. which is why they are entering the river. Making it the BEST Month for a chance at a Brown Trout.
Steelhead will also concentrate on eating their eggs in Nov.
Last year was very good for Brown Trout on the River and we probably set a record.
With TONS of brown trout in the Lake this summer and with past – current reports on the river. This should continue this year.
Steelhead avg. 8-12 lbs. Steelhead fishing begins on the Salmon River NY in the Fall. And the Steelhead fishing season goes all Winter into the Spring in Pulaski NY

February, March and April are great Steelhead Fishing days on the Salmon River in Pulaski NY. As new Steelhead move into and out of the Salmon River on a daily basis.
Todays Humor – Ever happen to you? John told me a funny story about his wife and a 15 lb. Steelhead on the Salmon River. Turns out that as John rushed for the net he ripped a big hole in his waders and cold water rushed in. When he dove for the Steelhead with the net, he fell in. Causing more cold water to fill his waders. When he tried to net the Steelhead for the third time he smashed his watch to pieces on a rock.
Steelhead was netted, picture was taken and Steelhead was released back into the Salmon River. I’m sure John’s wife was very appreciative of his efforts.
I’m hoping for a higher water release from the Salmon River dam, to flush all the dead smelling Salmon down river TO YOUR SPOT. P-U!
Today’s Salmon River NY Steelhead Fishing Tips.
Many steelhead will be holding behind spawning Salmon and Brown Trout. To include the first current break directly below these spawning Salmon or Brown Trout. Where they can easily intercept the eggs being laid, as they float down the river.
