New York Salmon Fishing

New York features a number of top Salmon Fishing Lakes throughout the State and the world famous Salmon River.  With access to both Lake Ontario and Lake Champlain, New York anglers have great opportunities at world class Salmon fishing.  New York Salmon Fishing is typically at it's best during the salmon runs in May through July.




Salmon River Fishing
The Salmon River is known for outstanding Salmon Fishing.  Two Salmon Fishing Records have been set in the Salmon River: The Great Lakes Record Chinook Salmon at 47 lbs. 13 oz., and the World Record Coho Salmon at 33 lbs. 4 oz.

Saranac River Salmon Fishing
The Saranac River is known as the top tributary for Landlocked Salmon fishing.  Spring anglers focus their efforts near the river's mouth and in the fall anglers find good salmon fishing over the 3 mile stretch of river to the Imperial Dam.

Lake Ontario
Features great King Salmon and Coho Salmon Fishing in the deep waters of Lake Ontario.  In the summer, trollers can catch big mature King Salmon in 70-100 feet of water with flasher-fly or flasher-cut bait combos.

Lake Champlain
Landlocked Salmon move into the shallows after ice-out and can be caught by trollers using spoons or minnow plugs.  In the summer, salmon suspend near the thermocline where they feed on schools of smelt.

Lake George

In early summer, salmon move to areas of bottom weeds around the 30-foot depths where they feed on young smelt.  The most effective summer technique on Lake George has been to run streamer flies or small spoons on downriggers.  In the fall, salmon return to tributary mouths where anglers target them with live shiners.

Atlantic Salmon

The Atlantic Salmon is a hugely important gamefish to New York anglers and a highly prized catch. These fish can grow to very large sizes and are known as powerful swimmers, built for endurance and speed. Atlantic Salmon returning to their native rivers to spawn must swim against the current of the river and they often must leap spectaculary up rocky falls or other obstructions to reach the spawning area.

Chinook Salmon

These highly prized game fish are also known as King Salmon and are very hard-fighting, powerful fish. They can often be caught in big numbers when large shoals are found. Like most salmon, chinook do not feed when entering river systems, so the angler must get the salmon to take flies or lures when they would not do so naturally.
