Salmon River Craziness

Salmon River Craziness

Many fly fishers won’t fish the Salmon River in September and October.  It’s tough to fault them, as it can be a crazy, crowded scene.  Over nearly two days of fishing, I witnessed fish snagged, angling space invaded, fish illegally possessed and way too much trash left stream side. The...
Sight Casting

Sight Casting

Sight casting both literally and figuratively (Photo).  Conditions change on the tributaries every day and so should your tactical approach to Steelhead fishing. When the water is Turbid (stained), conditions are much more forgiving in terms of your presentation of your fly. Floats or strike indicators...

Being civil

Being civil

Steelhead fishing improved the past week.  The run off brought in fresh fish and caused fish movement.  While some of the larger creeks/rivers are now discolored and nearly blown out, fish are present.  Smaller creeks are less chocolate colored and will clear more quickly.  Look to small tributaries...
Here They Come!

Here They Come!

  Brown Trout caught on the fly during a guided trip with guide Scott Feltrinelli.   Here they come! With the weather patterns changing, the November winds shift to a direction out of the north and give us more rains due to “lake effect” rain. While the bigger creeks on Lake Ontario...
Tricos or Salmon

Tricos or Salmon

We gambled and lost.  We bet against the Salmon River, in favor of the West Branch of the Delaware.  The Salmon River was the winner, the WBD the loser.  As anglers siding with the WBD, we missed out on a fresh, fast and furious salmon run. You could argue that our reasoning was flawed.  That it’s...
Lakeshore Trout Right Now!

Lakeshore Trout Right Now!

  Yellow Buggers Casted From Rock Jetty After a guided trip with two customers on Sunday on Lake Ontario tributaries, I realized the rains had not produced as many fish in our local creeks as I had hoped for. Seeing pairs of giant Pike in the creek was a tell tale sign that it was the beginning...
Heavy Fishing Pressure

Heavy Fishing Pressure

A friend recently shared an interesting observation about Oak Orchard.  He commented that several years ago if he arrived on a weekend morning within half an hour of sunrise, then he would be one of the first cars in the parking lot.  That early timing would allow him to choose wherever he wanted to...

King Time

King Time

The salmon are in!  Those words are no exaggeration on the Salmon River.  Over the past week, thousands of king salmon poured upriver.  These fish don’t care that it’s mid-September.  I’d heard multiple reports about stellar early season fishing on the Salmon River.  Even though...
Getting My Salmon Fix

Getting My Salmon Fix

  Salmon are in!  Those three magical words mark the start of  promising Fall tributary fishing.  Recent rain raised water levels and cool nights  dropped water temperature.  While larger systems like the Genesee and Salmon River have known the presence of salmon for weeks, smaller tributaries...
