Featured Testimonial: Our Clients Write In

Hey Joe! Thanks again for an awesome trip! We had a great time with you, as always.

We fished with Joe again for our fourth year in a row, and even with tricky water conditions Joe put us on great spots. As usual we were catching fish while others on the river were having problems. I have said it over the years, but this guy is the best at what he does. His passion for the sport and his knowledge of the river make him a real asset to all of his clients. If there is any doubt as to his mastery, just ask him, and he will tell you how great he is.

See you next year.

We love ya Joe! Thanks again, Alex Besterman

Salmon River: 09/30/2017
Water Temp: 59ºF     Flow: 335 cfs

( All is as it should be )
Hi All,The Salmon are making their push into the tributaries Of Lake Ontario at a descent pace now. Water temperatures are heading in a positive direction. Extended forecast for another warmup next week, not great, but mother nature now, will no longer play a factor, Salmon are at the stage of their journey,where nothing but the urge to spawn is important, the life span soon to be over. The tenacity of some of these fish being so aggressive to a fly post spawn, leads be to believe, the early arrival of Salmon were wild fish, born of the river. Once they start competing for females ,the same will be said,for hatchery reared Salmon. Scary note ,No Summer Run Steelhead, thus far, not good.
Anyway! ( Hope to see you all on the water )
Tight Lines, Joe & Sinbad
