Why Brining Bait Wraps Can Catch You More Salmon

By: Alan Borges We’ve had a lot of rain the last few weeks along the coast in the Pacific Northwest. When coastal rivers are dropping back in shape like they are doing now is when we use plugs the most. When using plugs wrapping them with sardines, tuna and other baits are imperative. The bait [...]

Salmon Still Running in the Greater Toronto Area

By: Bojan Zivkovic The north shore of Lake Ontario has seen a strong salmon run this fall and it’s not over yet. Considering rivers have little water the fishing has been stellar in Southwestern Ontario. Low water levels forced schools of salmon into long and deep stretches, which is where they are now. These fish [...]

Lower BC Fraser Tidal Water Producing Salmon Now

By: Rodney Hsu If you live in Metro Vancouver and enjoy fishing October and November are excellent months. During the fall millions of Chinook, chum and coho can be seen travelling through the Lower Fraser River. Bait fishing is permitted now in the tidal portion of the Fraser River, downstream from the railway bridge in [...]

New York’s Salmon River Still Flooded With Salmon

By: Troy Creasy We’ve had very poor returns the last two years on New York’s Salmon River. Fortunately, this year has been a wonderful turnaround. It’s been great compared to the last two years. We haven’t had a run like this since 2013. It’s been a steady flow of salmon and they’re still coming. We [...]

Western New York Tributaries Loaded with Trout & Salmon

By: Joey Usher This was my first time fishing Western New York’s tributaries for salmon and trout and while I’ve fished with huge crowds for the Pennsylvania trout open I’ve never experienced anything like this, not even on The Salmon River in Pulaski. It was insane. The creek we fished (this one was Eighteenmile) was [...]

Niagara River Salmon Run Peaking Now

By: Frank Campbell The Niagara River salmon run started slow due to record warm water coming from Lake Erie, which led to a delay in the salmon looking to return to our river. The beginning of our run took a hit because of record warm temperatures. However, at the end of the September we got [...]

Learn A Perfect Brine For Niagara River Salmon

By: Ted Kessler My go-to egg curing method hasn’t changed in a few years. More than 85 percent of the salmon we catch come on what I call the Niagara River Brine. I mix plain borax and blend three colors of Fire Cure and it gives us an egg the salmon key in on. More [...]

Fall Bringing Hot Trout Action in Anchorage & Mat-Su Valley

By: Dustin Slinker We’re in the transition period in Alaska. The majority of the salmon runs are over and a lot of fisherman are hanging up their rods and cleaning up their rifles to go hunting. Those of us that are still fishing are chasing trout around in lakes and creeks and finding exceptional action. [...]

Learn to Mix Cures For Great Lakes Salmon Success

By: Kevin Davis Four years ago maybe a few bank anglers were using skein. Now there’s 100 people on the wall I drift past every day using it. Everybody realizes that the salmon do bite skein and you don’t have to try and snag them to catch them. However, us guides revealing our egg curing [...]

Anglers Finding Luck With North Oregon Coast Salmon

By: Dave Manners So far it’s been a decent year in Tillamook Bay and our tidewater. We’ve had highs and lows. There have been large waves of fish and there have been some days where they haven’t bit as good. With that said there’s still fresh fish on the way and we’ll be salmon fishing [...]
