We are centrally located between
Rochester and the Salmon River. This location gives us the advantage of being close to the best fishing all
The fishing begins
after the ice melts off the rivers and bays of Lake Ontario. The many tributaries in our
area warm the water close to shore luring the fish in. Spring fishing is close to the
shore to take advantage of this situation. We even use planner boards to help bring the
lures closer to the tributaries. This time of year gives you the chance to catch a variety
Our brown trout fishing is
second to none!
April, May and June are
prime brown trout time. Imagine catching brown trout ranging in size from 8 to 20 pounds,
with the state record being over 32 pounds! Acrobatic steelhead and Coho salmon, and
occasional Chinook (king) salmon are also taken this time of year.
As the weather gets warmer the increased temperature moves the
fish away from shore. When
the thermal cline sets up, we move off-shore to start looking for the† trophy trout
and salmon. July is the start of Chinook season. With the average "King"
weighing between 18 and 22 pounds, but landing a 40 pounder is not uncommon. In
Fall ESLO derby's the Top 10 placed fish all exceeded 40 pounds! New York's† Chinook
record is a whopping 47lbs. 13oz.!!!
The Coho Salmon are not
as large as the "King" salmon, but they are great fighters. When you hook into
one of these fighting fish at 100 foot down, they can be on the surface dancing before you
can even get up to grab the rod! Coho's average around 12 to 16 pounds, with the state
record at 33.7 pounds.
