Looks like we are completely iced out in all of our rivers and creeks. Starting with western New York; as of now all of our rivers and creeks are flowing very high and off color. We also have a fair amount of snow yet to melt off, so snowmelt conditions are definitely going to continue for at least another week. This is nothing unusual for this time of the year.  Looks like we are going to have a normal time schedule for this springs steelhead run. We should see water temperatures and water flows improved by the end of this coming week, weather depending

Salmon river; so far the fishing remains very consistent. Water flows are still at 350CFS, how long will the flows remain constant is the question. Sooner or later spring run off is going to hit the Salmon River. Until then there is a slow trickle of fish working their way up river. Over the past week the lower and mid River sections of the Salmon River are now starting to get a few fresh fish holding in the more productive pools. As of now there is no real concentration of fish in any one particular spot from Lower River to mid Rivers. Best strategy for fishing these sections of the river is to swing flies; we need to cover a lot of water fast to find a cooperative fish. Keep in mind water temperatures are very cold it is still fishing in winter conditions. Fish a very slow swing and keep your fly as deep as possible. Ideal fly patterns for swing are bunny leech and small intruders, keep the fly length somewhere between 2 to 3 inches long. Up river stay with stone fly nymphs in size 8 to12. 


I have days available for late March early April, fishing oak Orchard River and the surrounding creek. There is also days available for mid April into made May on the Salmon River. If interested or have any questions please feel free to give me a call. Cell 585-233-0436
