“World Class” salmon and steelhead fishing on the beautiful
Salmon River, Lake Ontario or
one of many nearby tributaries. The Double Eagle
itself provides 400 feet of private entry right on the Salmon River
providing guests with access to migrating fish.
Late summer / early fall (August, September, October)
brings large runs of Chinook (King) and
Coho Salmon into the Salmon River followed closely by the prized Steelhead
and Brown Trout. Minimum
of 9 wt. rods combined with large arbor reels are highly recommended
for these powerful fish.
Late fall (November, & December) offer excellent
Steelhead and Brown Trout fishing. Both steelhead
and brown trout are aggressively seeking out salmon eggs with egg
patterns or tied egg sacs fished under a float being very effective.
Again, stout rods with large line capacity reels hive the angler an
advantage over powerful runs after a hook-up.
The winter months (December, January, February, and March)
offer additional opportunities for Steelhead wintering over in the
river and depending on weather conditions; can be superb. Anglers
capable of dealing with cold temperatures, or who are lucky enough
to be on hand during a warm
period can experience great steelhead fishing. Float fishing gear
that include moderate / slow action
rods with a minimum length of ten feet combined with a quality center-pin
or spinning reel provide an excellent presentation.
Spring time (March, April, and May) the river and
tributaries awaken from their long winter sleep
with warmer water temperatures and spawning steelhead. Mid-April through
Mid-May see spawned-out, hungry steelhead present in the river and
tributaries. These fish can be extremely aggressive, willing
to take a host of offerings that include flies, egg sacs and a variety
of live bait.
Summertime (May through September) is for fishing
Lake Ontario, trolling its deep water for Kings,
Coho, Lake Trout, Brown Trout and Steelhead. Beginning in early spring,
large numbers of brown trout weighing up to twenty pounds congregate
along the shore line of Lake Ontario providing exceptional shallow
water angling opportunities. Salmon, steelhead and lake trout are
also available catches.
