Healy Outdoors provides guided drift boat and wading trips on the Salmon River and Oswego River as well as ice fishing lake trips. Starting out of Altmar, New York, you and Captain Michael Healy will head out to your desired freshwater destination and have a great time trying to catch various species. The captain knows the area well and knows how to make your trip a successful one, so join him aboard and have a lovely day of fishing rivers or lakes!

Up to 10 anglers can join a trip. The boat you’ll be using is a 16’ Hyde drift boat that runs on a 6 HP Nissan engine. It uses GPS for safe and efficient navigation and features an ice-box to store your fish.

The species you’ll be chasing include Rainbow, Brown, and Lake Trout, Chinook and Coho Salmon, as well as Walleye. To reel them in, you’ll use light and heavy tackle to troll, spin, drift fish, fly fish, and even ice fish. You decide whether you want to keep the fish you catch or release it back to the water. Kids are welcome to join aboard. Bring them as well and have a great family outing together.

Your guide will provide both regular and fly fishing gear, live bait, as well as lures. You should bring your fishing licenses and something to eat and drink so you stay refreshed.

Healy Outdoors and Captain Micheal are waiting for you in Altmar!

    Salmon is most active in low-light conditions like most predatory game fish, so why not fish them at night. These trips are for up to 3 people and take place in the evening hours into the dark. Based on the lake conditions, you start out trolling in the lake and as the cover of darkness creeps in you make your way back into the estuary where you'll cast spoons and crankbait while plunking egg sacs for Salmon making their way into the river. This trip offers fresher and more powerful fish.
