Cold Steel Sportfishing–Drift Boat

3750 NY-13
Pulaski NY, United States

If you want to get up-close-and-personal with NY’s famous Salmon River, then join Cold Steel Sportfishing for a unique drift boating experience! You’ll be guided by an experienced charter operator, and will have the opportunity to cover plenty of the hottest fishing spots, as well as spinning and fly fishing for your dream catch. This hands-on experience is perfect for anglers who like to feel the water rushing against their waders!

Never been drift boating before? Cold Steel Sportfishing describes their 18’ Fish-Rite aluminum drift boat as a ‘water taxi’ – she’ll get you to plentiful fishing grounds and help you cover lots of water during your trip. You’ll have the chance to troll and spin from the boat, or beach up and explore these plentiful waters by wading. Your vessel can accommodate up to 3 guests, plus your guide, making her perfect for those of you that want a truly hands-on, personal angling adventure. 

As for the species you’ll be encountering? The clue is in the name! The Salmon River is home to a huge population of impressively-sized Chinook and Coho Salmon, as well as Rainbow Trout, so if you’re looking to reel in some tasty table fare, then you’ve come to the right place.

Your guide will use their local knowledge and expertise to help you reel in your dream catch, as well as showing you the best techniques to use. You won’t just be back trolling with plugs, which is usually expected on drift boats – you’ll have the chance to fly fish and spin, too, so expect some rod-bending action.

Your trip includes top-of-the-line rods, reels, and tackle for spinning and fly fishing, as well as lures and live bait to tempt your catch. If you want a truly unique angling experience that’ll see you drifting along some seriously bountiful fishing grounds, then join Cold Steel Sportfishing and get ready for a hands-on adventure!

I've fished my whole life. It's always been the one thing I could do non-stop and enjoy. I loved the idea of making my love a profession! Equally, I enjoy meeting new people and teaching them to fish, or guiding them to their catch of a lifetime. I enjoy fishing for almost any fish, but Trout and Salmon are my passion!
