Salmon River - Freshwater Fishing Report
As you can see from the pictures it has been a busy week. The LOC Derby festivities, walleye opener, river fishing and trolling the shoreline for browns. So here it goes. Shelley and I attended the LOC Ceremony in Rochester, Sunday afternoon. There was a good turnout, but I am shocked that more people don't attend. Food, Prizes raffles, big fish, good people, plenty to see and do. I can't get all the photos on the site, but you can see them at www.loc.org
Fisherman are always full of excuses, but had all my clients entered the derby we would have placed 1st in the youth brown trout division and 8th in the adult brown trout division. This may sound bitter, but from now on everyone that fishes with me during the derby must be eneterd. If you don't want to enter, then we will get you in the book the week before or after. These derbies do so much to promote this wonderful fishery, that I am shocked more people don't participate.
I am still fishing the river and Jim Leonard Sr & Jr had an excellent day boating four nice fish up to 13 pounds. Eleven year old Jimmy is great on the rod. It is so good to see young people interested in fishing.
I was back on the lake today with Todd Poteet and company. We had a great day going 13 for 18 on browns with two over 10 pounds, the largest being 12.5. The weather was really windy but the bite was on. Black and silver T-Spoons and Smithwicks were the Hot items. We trolled 1.9 to 2.1 in 6 to 10 feet of water.
The salmon river still has plenty of fish and it is running at a puffy 350cfs.
This past week has provided some excellent fishing on Lake Ontario and the Salmon River. The browns are showing up in good numbers along the Oswego shoreline and the steelhead are dropping down the salmon river and biting like crazy.
Now is the time to get in on the hot bite. I still have May 12, 14,15, 24, 28 all day and the May 9, 13, 16 in the afternoon. There are also excellent days available throughout the summer months.
Don't miss out, give us a call now.
