Default Great Weather Period

October 6, 2011

Fishermen, take notice. The fishermen visting the Salmon River at Altmar & Pulaski are, right-now, "pulling" the Salmon Fish out of the River in good numbers-NOW!! You fishermen had better plan your fishing trip to the Salmon River for THIS WEEK or WEEKEND or during the next 2-3 weeks; you'll be satisfied with the "catch" of Salmon you get.

This weekend, Fri. Oct. 7th - Sat. Oct. 8th - Sun. Oct. 9th, 2011 (and next week) is going to be great weather forecast for the Salmon River/Altmar/Pulaski NY area; plan your trip=don't miss out.

After you have a good day of fishing on the River, you can have a great dinner at one of the restaurants in Pulaski. I always enjoy one of these restaurants. Tell the Hostess or Host that, "Larry said to stop-in for Dinner". Eddy's Restaurant, .. www.eddysplacerestaurant.com/ - Regular full menu dinners/pizza Plus Fridays=all-you-can-eat Seafood Buffet. Saturdays=all-you-can-eat Italian Food Buffet. Sundays, from 12 noon to closing=Traditional Food all-you-can-eat Buffet. River House Restaurant .. www.riverhouserestaurant.net ..

I hope you will be able to do some fishing on the Salmon River real soon. I know you will enjoy your time and fish catch.

Default September 2012 ~ Fishing The Salmon River ~ Pulaski & Altmar NY

September 2012

They are running right NOW.!!!

The Salmon River is known as the Salmon Capital of the Eastern U.S. It offers world class fishing to any and all who wish to try their luck. Every Autumn thousands and thousands of King and Coho Salmon begin their annual spawning run into Lake Ontario tributaries. The Salmon River has a fish hatchery at Altmar which ensures good numbers of returning fish year after year. Also, recent years have shown that in the Salmon River and its tributaries, natural reproduction has seen an increase in success.

The fish that return to the Salmon River in the Autumn will vary in species, numbers and size. The most abundant fish to return to the Salmon River is the King Salmon. Also, known as a Chinook Salmon, not only is it the most abundant it is also the biggest fish to run the river. King Salmon from the Salmon River have been known to top the scales at over 40 lbs. with many fish in the 20-30 lb. range. Along with the big fish there will be some 1 year old fish called "jacks". These fish rarely weigh over 10-12 lbs.

Coho Salmon are less in numbers and in size. The record Coho was caught in Lake Ontario near Oswego and weighed over 33 lbs. What they lack in size they make up for in fight. Also, in the Autumn, good numbers of Steelhead and Brown Trout enter the river. The Brown Trout are Autumn spawners. They enter the river to eat the eggs of the spawning Salmon and Steelhead. Trout of over 22 lbs. have been taken during the Salmon run.

Beginning around mid-August, the Salmon begin to congregate near and in the mouth of the Salmon River. At this time, it is possible to catch your limit of fish in a couple hours. It is easy fishing and you don't need a lot of experience. As the season progresses, Salmon start to move into the river. Then you can either fish from a "drift-boat", wade the river, or walk in and along the river edge to catch the Salmon. These are tough, strong fish and they will test anglers know-how, patience, strength, and abilities. These are trophy fish.!!

Default Fishing Derby ~ October 5 - 7, 2012 ~ Salmon River ~ Pulaski NY

September 27, 2012 . . . . . . . Read about the Fishing Derby below.

FISHING REPORTS --- Sept. 25 - 27, 2012 --- Salmon River, Pulaski - Altmar-NY

Notice: The Lower Fly Section will remain CLOSED from Sept 15 until Oct. 31. The Upper Fly Section OPENED on Sept. 15th.

The river is loaded from the estuary all the way up to Altmar. One of the best runs we have ever seen. The lake has been difficult to access this week with the wind but there appears to be a good number of Salmon still to enter the river. (by Dave Wood)

The Upper Fly Fishing Zone is open and anglers reported it is holding fish but they are very line shy with the low water. The fishing in the lower end of the river has been excellent. If you've been here you know what I'm talking about, if not what are you waiting for? Estaz eggs, glo-bugs, black egg sucking leeches, woolly buggers, estaz stone flies and sucker spawn are working well. (by Whitaker)

Just when we thought things were getting a little slower we have a day of increased fish running. Once again fish of all species were pushing up the river in droves all day long. From 12 lb. Brown Trout to a 24 lb. Coho and add a bunch of Steelhead; we had a solid mix of everything down on the run. It appears this incredible year just keeps getting better! Daytimes have been beautiful with clear skies and a high in the high 60's to low 70's. Water temperatures are around 60 degrees. (by Garrett Brancy)

I have been up to the river twice on weekdays and fishing has been terrific! Fish are scattered in the river from top to bottom, the low water condition makes it very easy to spot and get into fish... There's large areas of river stretches with few anglers where you can fish easily with little walking... and ability to avoid the weekend larger numbers of fishermen. (by Fish On)

My boys (ages 15 and 17) fished the other day for the first time. The fishing was awesome, as they landed Kings, Cohos, and Steels. Everybody on the river were very friendly and courteous some gave us advice on where to fish. A guide on the river was very nice to my son who had a big Salmon take him up stream - he gave him advice and was helpful to net the fish. Thanks to him. It was a great day and great experience. (by D. Coats)

My 11 year old son and I had the pleasure of fishing the river with a guide the other day. The day was spectacular! With the guide's advice and help my son landed ten fish, three of them Cohos. The early morning was almost all Kings but as the day progressed the number of Coho just kept increasing. I want to thank everyone on the river for their courtesy and friendliness. Thanks to you guys who complimented my son on his accomplishment and fishing-catch when we walked out to our vehicle. (by R. Curran)

Fishermens comments on the Salmon River-NY.

It's that time of year again for the Salmon to run-up the river for the Fall spawning season; September & October 2012. Fishermen have been arriving at the Salmon River for several weeks now from all over the U.S. = Minnesota-Illinois-Ohio-Tennessee-North Carolina-Virginia-Maryland-Delaware-Pennsylvania-New Jersey-Connecticut-Rhode Island-Massachusetts-Vermont-New Hampshire-Maine-Ontario-Quebec. The catch of Fish has been nothing short of outstanding.

New Jersey resident Chris O'Donnell said, "I grew up by the biggest lake in New Jersey, so I fished all my life when I was a kid and I came up here 16 years ago and it's world-class fishing, four hours from my home. Outside of the Great Lakes, you've gotta go to the West Coast to catch Salmon. They have sea run Salmon and Trout out there and we have the lake runs and we get some nice ones in Jersey=five - six pound Trout, but up here, you're getting 20 - 30 pound Salmon."

The Salmon River's fishing is so good that it not only brings visitors here, it has even converted some avid hunters, like Pennsylvania resident Kevin Pace. "I was a big-time hunter for quite awhile until about 15 years ago, I came up here for the first time Steelheading and I gave up hunting and I just fish now. And while some people who live in this area may take these fishing conditions for granted, this is one of only a few places on this side of the country to find this caliber of fishing. You meet and make new friends all the time, 'cause everyone on the Salmon River is doing the same thing. We're all up here to relax and have a good time."

Scott Beam said, "I caught my first fish here when I was 15 years old. Since then I've come up here from New Jersey for multiple weekends, every year for 30 years now. There's no comparison. I've gone to Oregon, all over the country and this is the best I've fished in 30 years."

Massachusetts resident Patricia Genovese said, "The Salmon River reminds me of Alaska - but its a lot easier to get to. Even though there's this large river here, it's quaint - it's beautiful. And you can do a lot of other things here like go pick apples, squash, and pumpkins."

Young boy Josh Page told his fisherman dad, "I want to catch a big Salmon; for dinner tonight."


Pulaski and Altmar cater to the fishermen who come to fish the Salmon River. There are: fish cleaning stations, fish tackle shops, all price range motels & rooms, and several convenient restaurants. So plan your fishing trip to the Salmon River to participate in this weekend's Fishing Derby or to just come try your luck at landing some Trophy Size fish to take home with you.
