Mike Salamon Guide Service

Lake Wallenpaupack offers an idyllic setting for superb freshwater fishing, and its waters are plentiful with game fish. Mike Salamon runs guided, both day and night, fishing trips for catches that are excellent fun and will make your time here memorable!

A Crestliner VT18 bass boat is the perfect craft for a personalized trip onto the lake. It has room for just you and one other guest meaning that Mike has plenty of time to give you a helping hand should you need it. The boat also has GPS, a live bait well as well as a fishfinder and Active Target to help you get what you’re after. A comfortable and well equipped 24 ft pontoon boat is perfect for larger groups. ( call for pricing after 2 persons)   

Mike runs trips that target Smallmouth Bass, Striped Bass, Walleye, and Panfish that inhabit Lake Wallenpaupack. He uses light tackle, including St Croix and Daiwa brands, to carry out techniques such as spinning, jigging, and popping. If you book in the winter you can even go ice fishing!

You’ll need to acquire a Pennsylvania fishing license beforehand, which you can do online. You are welcome to take food, drinks, and weather-appropriate clothes with you. There is the option of exploring the Susquehanna River, just take a look at Capt. Mike’s other listing.

If you want to gain new skills and personal lake fishing trip is what you’re after, then you need look no more, as Mike Salamon’s guide service has you covered.

"Fishing has been my passion since I was a child!" Mike Salamon has been fishing since he was 12 years old, and decided to put his lifetime of angling know-how to use by becoming a guide over a decade ago. He honed his skills by taking part in plenty of Bass tournaments, so it's safe to say he has a trick or two up his sleeve when it comes to hooking 'em. He's a local to this area, which means he knows the ways of these waters, and will happily guide you to the hotspots! Fishing has always been his passion, and he can't wait to pass his love for the sport onto you – he especially loves introducing little ones to casting a line!
