King Salmon

Aug - Nov

The largest and most abundant fish in the Salmon River. Well known for its tenacity and unstoppable runs, it's no wonder that the king salmon demands so much attention as a sports fish.

Coho Salmon

Aug - Nov

Coho salmon are generally smaller and range in size from 3 to 10 lbs., averaging around 8 lbs. The world record Coho salmon, caught in the Salmon River, weighed 33 lbs. 4 oz.


Oct - May

Winter run, steelhead begin entering the Salmon River in late October and continue through Spring. They feed aggressively on the abundant salmon eggs in the Fall, thus making it a very good time to go steelhead fishing. Fish that entered the river in the fall will hold over in the deeper pools of the river throughout the winter. Spawning usually takes place during mid-March and through early April.

Brown Trout

Oct - Aug

Brown trout enter the river from mid-September to mid-November. Brown trout are also on a spawning run, but will feed heavily on salmon eggs. It can be difficult to target brown trout, but one option is fishing downstream from actively spawning salmon with egg sacs and egg imitating flies and plastics. Brown trout range from 2 to 20 lbs.

Atlantic Salmon

Apr - Nov

Easily distinguished from their Pacific counterparts by a white mouth and gum line, Atlantic salmon populations are on the rise due to restocking efforts by the NYSDEC and other groups.

Smallmouth Bass

Apr - Aug

Smallmouth by nature, tend to be lazy fish when they are in a river, and prefer to use as little energy as possible when they are on the hunt. Similar to trout, they like to sit in places where they will be out of the current, but have the ability to shoot out and feed quickly and aggressively. Drop-offs and transition water will almost always hold big fish, above you can see us working a seam where the water goes from light to dark as it swirls in a big Salmon River pool.
