Join us to fish a world class steelhead and salmon fishery in Western New york. Based out of Pulaski, we run guided drift boat and wading tours on the Salmon river and other lake Ontario for fall run Salmon and Steelhead and spring run Steelhead. These fish are arguably the hardest fighting freshwater fish in the world and it’ll only take one to have you hooked, and into your backing… With over 30 years of guiding on the Salmon River Bob Shannon has developed a unique nymphing method for these awesome fish that will not only put more steelhead on the end of your line but will also drastically improve the way you fish a trout stream. Trips may consist of both drift boat fishing and wade fishing depending on fishing and water flows. A hot lunch is provided on all full day trips. Centerpin and Spin fishing trips available at the same cost.
