Pulaski NY Salmon River Steelhead Fishing Report.
With increased water flow levels, a continuation of fresh Steelhead have been entering the Salmon River for awhile now. Its going to be a good Winter and Spring. Ye-Haa!
Bright fresh Steelhead and older Steelhead Top to Bottom of the Salmon River. Not many anglers fishing now, which is normal. Great time for you to come up and fish. Lots of Prime Winter Steelhead holding spots wide open for you.
We are hitting (just arrived) bright fresh steelhead up river, along with some older ones.
A fair number of Steelhead reacted to the increased 750cfs water flow by entering the river recently. They have spread out over the entire river, top to bottom.
With our last water level increase to 1,500cfs, more have entered the River.
Dec. 16 Water Level Forecast.
Until NOON today, 750 CFS
From NOON today until NOON tomorrow, Sun, 500 CFS
From NOON tomorrow until 11:59 PM tomorrow, 335 CFS
Approx. 10% of the Fresh Steelhead are in thier Temporary Transitional Holding spots (where they rest temporarily while running the river). And Prime Transitional Holding (Where they rest at during the day).
Approx. 90% of the Fresh and Older Steelhead are in the Prime Winter Holding pools.
There really is no bad place to fish, providing you have the correct habitat Ė current breaks for this water flow and water temp. There is a lot of empty water out there.
Besides anglers with drift boat guides, Im also seeing shore anglerís finding some Steelhead.
Thatís always nice to see!
Thanks for a fun 2017 and looking forwards to a Fish ON with YOU in 2018!
