Wow. Be safe. Don't drive through flooded roadways!
State Route 3 is closed between Hessel Road and County Route 120 in the Town of Ellisburg due to ice jams. In general, do not attempt to drive through flooded roads (or through ice!)

Some good tips to chase down the crome.
Some holes are missing, but lots of the common holes are a great place to start.
Great video and soundtrack. Around 8 minutes into the video you see a fisherman chest deep in fast water. PLEASE respect the force of the water. NEVER wade past your thighs. ALWAYS where a wading belt to keep your waders from filling with water. ALWAYS wear wading shoes with cleats for traction. Unfortunately people DROWN every year making bad decisions on the river. Please be SAFE on the river and TIGHT LINES!
Wow. A great season so far! Years past it seems like the salmon have been arriving later and later. Not this year. There are plenty of fish in the river right now. Lots of Coho's running the river and showing up at the hatchery. Well worth the trip right now. BTW, we are getting lots of requests for booking for a week or weekend. We can only rent out by the month per the Village of Pulaski. If you are looking for a longer term rental give us a call. Tight lines!
Looking good this year so far.
