It's Prime Time for some Winter steelhead fishing action on the Salmon River in Pulaski NY. Few steelhead anglers fishing, which opens up additional opportunities for you. Ton's of options on where to wet a line. Currently 98% of your steelhead are in all the Prime Salmon River Winter Holding pools, producing Steelhead top to bottom of the river.

Recommend fishing Mid. to lower river. With our past "almost daily" heavy slush from Pineville down and past and present higher water flow levels. Its made if tuff for anglers to fish these areas. Leaving you presently with a lot of uneducated steelhead. Also, due to the above, most anglers have been pounding the upper river. Causing the steelhead to become extremely educated and more difficult to fool.

The drift boat - wade fishing for steelhead continues to remain excellent for some, ok for others and slow for some-others.
We will continue to see more Steelhead enter, run, spread out and hold in the Salmon River as the season progress's.

Presently, with our past and present higher water flow levels we have received some more fresh Steelhead. Ye-Haa!
We have some more rain in the forecast for Mon. - Tues. So its possible (?) they will continue to run the Salmon River's water flow at a continued high level. Starting Wed. we will be back into more normal temps. and we will see all water levels start to drop, to a more comfortable wade angler level.

Give your favorite fishing buddy a ring. The steelhead (8 to 12 lb. average) are here and just waiting for you.

Standing on Shelf Ice while fishing Warning. Be careful! It might not support your body weight. A normal practice when standing on any shelf ice to fish is to MAKE SURE the depth of water below you is no deeper than thigh deep. ALSO, there are NO fast currents underneath you.

Heads UP! - Titanic Iceberg Warning. Wink It's always a fun (?) surprise when your fishing and a Titanic Iceberg runs into you. It's even more fun when you have a fish on and icebergs are floating close to your mainline in the water trying to break you off. Wink

We have received more Welcome Snow! This will help with our Spring Water flow levels when we want colder water and above normal flows to extend your steelhead fishing season.

All in all, things are shaping up very nicely for some SUPERB Spring steelhead fishing!
