Reel Addiction – Driftboat Guide Service

It’s no surprise how the Salmon River got its name, with the abundance of fishing for Coho and King Salmon on offer. Step aboard with Reel Addiction Outfitters And Guide Service and explore the famous river, as you battle it out with some of the toughest and tastiest fish out there.

You’ll be led along this winding waterway by Captain Tyler Mason. An avid angler of over 35 years, he still loves getting out on the water as often as possible. He’s just as comfortable teaching children or sharing in the joy of fishing with a pro, so anyone is welcome aboard.

There’s space for 2 guests on the 16’ Alumaweld drift boat. Capt. Tyler will row you down the stream as you go in search of the prime fishing spots. The fish grow to incredible sizes here, so get ready for an intense battle. Let your captain know if you’d like to use conventional gear, or fancy a go on the fly, and he’ll provide all the gear you’ll need.

You should also get in touch if there’s a specific species you’d like to go after. While the waters in fall are full of exciting and delicious Coho and King Salmon, as well as Steelheads, there can be some restrictions. Some days, fishing for certain species is restricted, and Capt. Tyler an advise you when’s best to come aboard.

Whatever you target, rest assured that you’re in for a thrilling day out. Each of these beautiful creatures will do whatever they can to get off the end of your line, so get ready for an intense workout to fill the boat.

This is fishing like no other. Get back to basics with Reel Addiction Outfitters And Guide Service and appreciate nature once again. Just grab your NY fishing license, bring some drinks and snacks aboard, and come and see what all the fuss is about!
