Salmon Season Drought Water levels?????

What effect could a "possible" low water flow on the Salmon River NY during Salmon Season have on YOUR fish?

Over 25 years, I've fished 2 entire Salmon Seasons in below normal "drought' water flow levels on the Salmon River, NY.

1 yr. - Lower river, fish came thru as usual. Another Yr. - Up river, fish came thru as usual.

Normally, low water (within reason) wont stop their naturally ingrained instinctive behavior to run the river to lay eggs and reproduce.

I'd swim thru a trickle of water myself, for a good women! Hows about you? :)

YOUR Summers Lake Ontario King Salmon Charter Boat Reports:

These Lake reports are normally an indication of what's to come for YOU in the Salmon River NY this Fall.

All the reports I've been getting "over all" are ok, good to great! Better than last year, more of'm and a more consistent - average BIGGER Size! Ye-Haa!

YOUR Current Salmon River NY Fishing Report's:

Mostly Bass with some Brown Trout around. There is a small chance presently, that you could hit a Trophy Atlantic Salmon in the river!

Hit quite a few good size (2lb+) Bass everywhere from 2A all the way up to Trestle. Using a center pin and spinning rod.

An expert S.R. angler friend did ok while fishing below 2A using a fly rod, swinging streamers.

On the surface, using Hornberg and Quill Gordon's, size 10-12.

Caught 1 Atlantic Salmon - 18 inches. 2 Browns at 14-16 inches. 3 Bass and lost the 2 BIGGEST fish after an approx. 2 minute fight.

(He couldn't tell what they were)

Water on the Salmon River is at a low flow of approx. 185cfs.

If you lived locally or were not traveling far. The Salmon River might be a fun fishing option for you this summer.

Never know, FISH ON!
