Hi everyone, Salmon river is running @ 335 cfs… More fish!!! More weather!!! Looks like weather is going to give us a little bit of a break. Rain, snow, wind and most of the month flooded, made it tough for fishing!! Most questions asked? Is there still fish in the Salmon River? Plenty of fish!!!!! These fish aren’t going any ware and the Browns are still showing spawn. A lot of Browns will release back to the lake but there here now. Steelhead are in the river all the way to May and there’s a pile of them. Is there fish in town? Where should I go? There is fish in the lower half 2a down stream. Fresh fish coming in every day more apt to bite. Great to see more fish movement!! Not many people on the lower this time of year, more room to fish!! Heavy concentration of people and fish up stream, all these fish off the lake are heading one way. How’s the bite? Trout are like a light switch on and off. Gotta put a day in there’s fish in front of you. Before you head out to your favorite spot stop in and see us!! We will help you with your rig, bait, location and put you on fish. Will give you the arrows ya just gotta be a good Indian!! Every few days we have bin adding new items to our Facebook store. No orders yet!! I have been listing some good deals!!

We are getting fish at 1650 all the better at 1300. Fish on the main river are right up under your feet. Right next to the banks!! Just gotta find those nooks and crannies to get a fish on. There’s uncountable fish in the mighty Salmon river!! More coming up as the reports thickened over the latter part of last weekend. Bite can be tough when cold fronts settle in!! Smaller hook, lighter line and smaller bait will help you get fish on. Look for mid day action when the sun is clipping the water. Run your baits SLOW!! SLOW!! SLOW!!

Hi everyone, Salmon river is running @ 1650 cfs… For all those who are waiting to get on the main river get ready!!!! River is on the down side. Should see a few floats ran in town. Cold front behind!! Want to tip light to get a bite. Sometimes just changing a pound or two will pick up more strikes. Fish start to get lethargic when cold temps set in. Puts them in the pools!! Remember we left off with a lot of fish. Creeks will recede putting more fish in the main river. Hope there not all in the Hatchery!! I’m excited with so many reports of Browns!! November is Brown trout month and looks like there following suit with some of the best fishing this fall. Go get’em!!! Happy Fishing!! srss j button

Hi everyone, Salmon river is running @ 3700 cfs… Does this mean we can’t fish? On the main river no but doesn’t mean we can’t fish other places. Great time to grab a guide!! Fishermen that put the time in caught fish! There were little windows through out the week when fishermen got into Browns, Steelhead, Perch and Walleye. As long as your willing to travel all tributary’s off lake Ontario take fish. The good news we got water and we got fish!! One more storm to go and it looks like weather should shape up to get to your favorite spot. On the backside of storms two or three days after is when fishing picks up! Can’t say it enough Salmon river has fish!!!!! I have to admit high water did give me a chance to rest my bones after two months of piss pounding!! I did get to go trick or treating with my grand daughter Kloey May and we had our Salmon River Sports Shop Halloween party!! I’m working on a Facebook store!!! Salmon River Sports Shop has always provided great service and we hope to continue this service into our Facebook store. We have been here a number of years and relied heavily on phone orders. We have obviously been on the decline with most purchases made online. Salmon River Sports Shop would like to thank everyone for there support this Salmon Season and we hope we get the same support with our very first Facebook store. Order now!!! I’m excited!!! Happy Fishing!! srss j button

Hi everyone, Salmon river is running @ 335 cfs…. Nothing really has changed. There is many fish in the Salmon river!! The only change we are going to have is weather. Storms always produce more movement. Numbers are at there best and yet to get better. If you haven’t been on the river might want to make a trip. There is a boat load of fish!! The best fishing I’ve seen in town in along time!! Perch are starting to load in the Harbors, Bays and Ponds. We are firing up our bait tanks this week and getting ready to by. Perch come in just like the river fish. Perch spawn in the spring, we get to fish for them all winter. I’ll keep you posted as we get going!! Happy Fishing!! srss j button Kate caught this huge Steely right under our window on a float and center pin!! Awesome Kate great job thanks for the pic!!
