Salmon Fishing - Pulaski, NY

We went salmon fishing in Salmon River of upstate New York last Saturday and Sunday.

There were not many salmons in the River.
One of  the two fly fishing only sections where we always fish, was closed.
As a result, fishing became very tough.

My wife got a few bites and hooked one, but failed to land it.
I also got a few bites and barely landed one.  I would admit it was pure luck.
What happened was someone upstream hooked a nice size salmon. He fought with the fish for several minutes, but the fish was finally off-hooked. It swam to the spot where I was fishing.
I hooked it in just a few casts and landed it.

We go to Salmon River in Pulaski every fall.
We always have fun and exciting moments in the whole salmon fishing experience.
However, this year was the least fun we have ever had.  In Sunday morning, we even felt miserable fishing in the non-stop pouring rain.
Let's hope for the better next year.



  1. Good Job on the Salmon River, Its amazing how big those fish are up there, I hope to go next season.

  2. Salmon fishing is just simply exciting.
    I think we are really lucky to have such a river in NY to enjoy salmon fishing every year without spending big bucks to go to Alaska or Canada.
