The 1880 House Fisherman's Lodge
is overlooking the Salmon River in Pulaski New York, Oswego County.
We're the prime Steelhead Trout and Salmon fishery in New York State.
Come Steelhead and Salmon Fishing on the
Salmon River in Pulaski NY where
Salmon River NY Species
Chinook Salmon (King Salmon)
From Late August thru October
Huge runs of King Salmon and Cohoes enter the Salmon River from Lake Ontario. This is the best time to fish for them.
Keep in Mind: Many Guests of the 1880 House Fisherman's Lodge, and anglers at other accommodations in the area make their reservations 1 year in advance, so try and plan your trip and book your reservations early. The 1880 House does not recommend coming to the Pulaski NY---Salmon River area during Salmon Season without a reservation!!!
October and November
Mid October thru Mid May
Steelhead Trout start migrating into the Salmon River in October at the end of the Salmon Run.
The 1880 House wants you to bring a Camera, not a Cooler for the Steelhead Trout. Please practice Catch and Release for future fishing of these beautiful trout. If you catch a trophy steelhead for mounting, or want to keep 1 steelhead for consumption then that is OK. We need to preserve our wonderful fishery.
Between Columbus Day Weekend and Christmas-New Years is generally a good time to fish for Steelhead on the Salmon River, before the cold winter weather sets in. When planning a Steelhead fishing trip in January and February, try to make last minute plans, due to weather conditions. March thru Mid May is a great time to travel to Pulaski NY when the Steelhead Trout are spawning in the Salmon River and it’s tributaries. However BE AWARE of High Water Levels during March and April, (due to spring thaw) The 1880 House has a cancellation policy of NO PROBLEM, if the water level is un-fishable. Check with us about conditions and water levels and where to fish. Even when the water level is high - there are still some great areas to fish.
Please check with your guide for their cancellation policy.

SPECIAL NOTES ABOUT SALMON RIVER NY GUIDES:
There are many many fishing guides on the Salmon River. And many of the Salmon river guides are NOT teaching guides. by teaching guides - I mean guides that will teach you the how to fish the Salmon River for Steelhead, Brown Trout and Salmon. Our recommended guides will teach you how to read the water, how to properly fish the Salmon River and surrounding area's, and how to catch a fishlegally (not to lift or snag a fish) .
Check your guide out very carefully!!! Ask Questions!!!
How will you be fishing - Bank Fishing? Driftboat? Running Plugs?
Are you spin fishing, center-pinning, spey casting, fly fishing, or running plugs ? Does the guide provide you with all the equipment? What about bait and flies?
What about lunch (some guides do provide lunch to their clients) The 1880 House does have a very good sub-shop across the street to prepare your box lunch.
Important: The 1880 House is not an Outfitter. We do not charge a fee for finding you the right guide . We will assist you in finding a guide that meets your needs and wants for your type of fishing.

While Fishing on the Salmon River
There is over 11 miles of fishable waters, and the River conditions vary from quiet pools to class-two rapids. *The Salmon River is a hydroelectric river, and the water levels, CFS, (cubic feet per second) can change at any time.
The Salmon River bottom is slippery year round and we recommend that you wear Korkers. Korkers are studded sandals that are very very important to wear. They can be purchased or rented from our area tackle shops.
