Fish Lake Run Outfitters  



Well here's to a new season

Fishing a familiar run

Hard to believe we're already at the end of summer. Feels like just yesterday we were just catching the last steelhead and the first of the smallmouth. As per usual, the summer was fairly quiet. We got out a handful of times hitting the smallmouth and the trout. Even found some really nice places to throw a mouse. Been slacking on the reports here. But looking ahead, we're expecting a great fall season!

The Catt's been flowing at around 180 cfs and dipping down into the low 60's and upper 50's in temperature! What a difference a year makes. This time last year we had no water and 90 degree days. Fish are already nosing their way into the creeks, and while I was out a few days ago I saw a fish roll up near Gowanda already!

Over the weekend we had a blast of rain come through and air temps in the 50's and 60's- perfect steelhead weather. Got out a looked around at the smaller creeks. They all have water now and should see a fish or to poking around the lower reaches here before long, if they haven't already. The big lake reports were good over the summer. Lots of fish and good size. If the spring is any indication, I'd expect some really good sized fish this fall.

On the Salmon River, anglers have been finding king salmon since mid-August. Lake trollers have hit fish in the high 30's this year, and some guys out in Lake Michigan landed a 41 pounder. It's just been really good all the way around and now it's starting to work it's way into the rivers. Can't wait for it to really kick off!
