Personal History - River Run Troutfitters
Joe Vivenzio was raised in a family of avid hunters and fisherman. As a boy, his father would arrange frequent weekend fishing excursions for his family and friends. Fishing for mostly Steelhead, Joe learned early on the skills that make him a well-respected guide today.

Tying his own flies - some with secret patterns, knowledge of where the fish lie throughout the day and what encourages them to bite all contribute to Joe's success on the water. He only supports "catch and release" fly fishing.

Most days, Joe can be found at the Salmon River in Pulaski, NY - a world-class fishery where people come from all around to fish. Pulaski is a friendly town that opens its doors to people who enjoy all kinds of outdoor adventures.

As an avid outdoorsman, Joe shares his intense passion for fly-fishing with his clients. The satisfaction of watching the exuberant face of his clients while they catch a 12 lb. steelhead or a 25 lb. salmon is what keeps Joe coming back to the water every day. He introduces a world to his clients that is so closed to their fingertips.

Born and raised in Albany, NY, Joe has resided in Altamont, NY for the past 27 years with his wife Karen. Together they have two grown children, Ian and Jeff.

Joe's love for animals extends to his pure bred Chesapeake Bay Retrievers, Sinbad, Maggie , Jasmine and Josie Rose. Breeding these beautiful dogs has resulted in the birth of over 28 puppies in the last two years! Sinbad accompanies Joe on all his fishing trips.
