Salmon River

The 17-mile-long Salmon River starts with gravel riffs and pools before giving way to bedrock and boulders before entering Lake Ontario. World-class fishing for numerous species is available on the Salmon River, which is renowned as one of North America’s most phenomenal salmonid fisheries.

As a premier fly-fishing destination, two sections of the Salmon River, comprising nearly one mile, are designated as catch-and-release fly fishing areas.  Atlantic salmon run the river from June through mid-August, while massive runs of Chinook and Coho salmon peak in September and October.  Steelheads storm the river in September and October, but are stocked through June and July as well.  Drift boat and bank guides are available to help create an amazing fishing experience.
