The fall salmon season has begun and a few kings have started entering the river and at this point its been small numbers, but keep in mind its still early and the best fishing is yet to come. The hot and dry summer has left us with low water conditions to start the season and the Labor Day Weekend water release was cancelled. With the recent low water conditions, the fish movement has been slow during the day with fish holding in the deeper holes and moving better first thing in the morning, late in the day or at night. The bulk of the action so far has been in the lower end of the river and the news of some kings being caught last week created lots of excitement and anticipation as we headed into the holiday weekend. The number of anglers increased over the holdiday weekend as compared with what we saw last week. This was not a surprise, the weather was great and it was good to see anglers getting out on the water. Overall we got mixed reports from anglers depending on where they fished. Some anglers saw fish while others did not, some anglers hooked and landed fish while others did not and some anglers fished sections of the river that had more anglers then fish. All of these things are typical for this time of year early in the run.
The king salmon fishing on the eastern end of Lake Ontario was tough the entire month of August and everytime out seem to be a challenge. That being said, September has started off much better with the fish we didnt have in August now showing up in good numbers and staging out front in the lake.
