I knew as soon as I saw this picture that it was an Atlantic Salmon and not a brown trout as the PA angler who caught it thought it was. This is a sought after fish and to catch one on the Salmon River NY is something to be able to
brag about. They're starting to come into the Salmon River NY and last year it was a really good season for them. We're anticipating another and even better season for 2011. Here's what Fran Verdoliva had to say in an email to me dated 5-11-11. Fran is our Region 7 Coordinator at the Salmon River NY Fish Hatchery which is located at 2133 County Route 22 Altmar, NY 13302-2201 and their phone number is: (315) 298-5051. Here's a direct link if you'd like to read about the Salmon River New York Fish Hatchery!
Beautiful Atlantic. I know of three that were caught yesterday upriver, all between 10 to 12 lbs. hatches are unbelievable on the river the past few days. I actually thought that last years flood probably would hurt the hatches, but apparently it didn't. Maybe it made them better by cleaning out the substrate. I think we are going to see another good run of Atlantic salmon this summer. time will tell. There have been numerous catches on the lake this spring. I just saw a Atlantic caught that was 19.5 lbs!

So, if you are interested in fly fishing for these beauties, we have full time local guides that stay in the area for the summer months and fish the Salmon River New York as well as other Great Lakes tributaries. There's plenty to do in Oswego County New York and if you've always wanted to learn about fly fishing or spey fishing, give us a shout and we'll be happy to customize an adventure for you.
There's beautiful brown trout, Skamania Steelhead (summer run steelhead), resident rainbow trout, and Atlantic Salmon available all summer long and they're BIG!!! Our fish are measured in pounds, not inches. Our Salmon River is about 14 miles long and it's wide and for some, overwhelming and a bit intimidating. Don't worry about that because we live it and guide it and can teach you how to be successful.
