Fishing Reports For The Salmon River
Having an accurate and up to date Salmon River fishing report is one of the most important parts of being a successful fishing experience.
For over three years we have been gathering and sending out fishing reports via this website and through emails. As we have been cultivating contacts on the Salmon River, we are now able to gather fishing reports directly from trusted anglers.
When reading a fishing report that is listed here or another website, please note the following.
- Fishing reports are generated for the current day.
- Fising reports are sent out after the day has concluded
- Fishing reports give the current position of fish but they cannot predict the position of fish the next day.
- Fishing reports must be used as clues or as a forecast of where fish could be the next day because fish continue to move.
- Fishing reports although an important part of the fishing experience it still does not negate the need for reading water and good fishing technique.
If you need any help fishing the Salmon River NY please do not hesitate to contact us or to leave a comment.

Image Used by Permission from @flywithme_adk_ang Summary The river continues to produce typical Steelhead days and then less than mediocre days. Due to the quick warmup and snowpack, the water level was raised to 1000 CFS with 1300 CFS at Pineville. Due to this rise in the water levels, the visibility was not great. High… [Continue reading…]
The report for the Salmon River is that the high water and prediction of snow is that the Steelhead season is in full swing. High water, although difficult for anglers to fish, is best for fish to move into the river. The fish that are in Lake Ontario are moving into the river and are… [Continue reading…]
Image from Finley Flyfishing – follow them on Instagram. This salmon season was like a relationship where it’s one big fat mixed message. It seemed like one minute, it was hot and heavy, and the next minute it was a ghost town. Then, after all these mixed messages, you get friend-zoned. Well, its time to… [Continue reading…]
