Hi everyone, Water is running @ 185 cfs…. First King Salmon of the season brought in to Salmon river sports shop caught behind the store. Reports of fish hooked on the big wall, in the ballpark and Black hole. Not a big run by any means. Mostly locals fishing and spotting a few here or there. We are encouraging locals and fishermen not to far away to come out and see if they spot or hook one. Real good reports from the lake!!!! Still early tho and we have a few more hot days ahead. We are busy getting ready and hope to have a good year. Call 315 298 4343 for more info… Happy fishing srss j. button

Hi everyone, Water is running @ 185 cfs. Hope everyone is having a good summer!!! Like we have done for years and we tell most, being a small family owned business does give us a break in the summer months. Not a lot of fish in the river at this time but my daughter Alexa has been dry fly fishing and picking up some small stream browns, looking for a nice size Atlantic!! My son Malcolm and I have been splitting some time in the canoe picking up a little bit of everything but mainly bass. The question on everyone’ s mind is will we have King Salmon and when will they get here? We never really know when or how many. The lake reports have been better of late reporting better size. We will keep a better eye on the lake as we creep closer to migration. We have been sending out lake trips from the store and so far the feed back has been positive. Lets stay optimistic and hope this years return is in better numbers. The store will be open August 15th 6am to 6pm and will take off from there. We have been busy getting ready and the hot line is open!! Happy fishing!!!! srss j. buttonIMG952016041995165631Vinny pics (2)IMG_8642

Hi everyone, Water is running @ 350 cfs. Steelhead fishing has been better over this warm up. Water is going to 750 cfs tonight. This should bring in more fresh fish. Females are loaded with eggs and the next few warm ups we should see some spawning fish. Fly fishermen working the bottom with egg patterns produced some strikes. Wax worms under a float is the bait of choice in the deeper pools. When water warms fish move. Getting close to fast water sometimes picks up a better bite. Spring is a tough time to plan a trip. We are more then willing to give you free info on the best time to come. We checked Green point yesterday for ice conditions. There is 5 to 7 inches and the marina should be open. We are on the main pond it doesn’t look like much but fish able since Wednesday. The sportsmen club had there annual kids derby yesterday all had fun and there was some nice fish entered. The report on sandy pond as a whole the bite is slow. There is a good cold front coming soon and this should help some places that are struggling to get better ice. We put in some more lures and we are loaded with fresh minnows. Stop in and we will help you. Happy fishing!! srss j buttonsteelheadwaxworms20160124_072023

Screenshot_2013-06-15-11-34-00Hi Everyone, There are still small mouth bass in the river. Mainly the deep holes threw out the river. Drifting night crawlers and crayfish is a great way to pick up these aggressive feeders. Sandy pond holds a fair amount of bass. Running top water baits and floating stick baits will produce some nice strikes. Some of these fish are 6 ponders and like to run in heavy weed beds. call 315 298 4343 if you need info.  thanks srss

Small mouth bass fishing has been good on Oneida lake. Fishing close to shore in about 15to 20 foot of water has  been best. minnows on tip ups and raps have been working well. morning till about 3 has been the best time to shoot for going. Bass season is closed so they do have to be released right away.

Hi Everyone! I know I’m jumping the gun a little here but bass season is right around the corner and this warmer weather is getting us all pumped. We’re already making plans to get a boat on the water as soon as we can and we’ve been planning the Bass Bash for a couple weeks. We’re hoping this is going to be a fun year for bass fishing so start getting those ideas in you head so we can all be on the same page with excitement.

We have minnows back in stock for the guys looking to get some perch. We are still buying fish call the shop for fish buying prices and sizes
