Top Fishing Charters in Pulaski

Once called “Fishville,” this town on the eastern shorelines of Lake Ontario lives up its former name. On a Pulaski NY fishing trip, you’ll have access to the smallest of the Great Lakes as well as the incredible Salmon River and the Douglaston Salmon Run. If freshwater sportfishing is your cup of tea, head on over!

While you can fish in Pulaski year-round, what you’ll catch will depend on where and when you go. Between April and October don’t miss out on the opportunity to explore Lake Ontario. Here, you can expect to hook into the likes of trophy Brown and Lake Trout, as well as Salmon in the deeper waters offshore.

If you’re here in the fall, chances are you came for the Chinook and Coho Salmon run. In that case, the Salmon River and Douglaston Salmon Run are where you want to be. These tributaries of Lake Ontario are stocked with delicious pink-fleshed fish and also offer excellent Steelhead fishing in the colder months.

Since the majority of anglers come to Pulaski in pursuit of Salmon, full day trips are the most commonly offered option. If you don’t have that much time to spare, a half day trip on Lake Ontario can put you on tasty Trout.

Where you’ll find a charter will depend on what fish you’re chasing. Head to the shorelines of Lake Ontario in the summer to find productive Trout charters and to the Salmon River in the fall to go after Chinook and Coho.

Rules & Regulations

Your charter captain will provide you with fishing gear, but you’ll be responsible for buying a fishing license for all anglers over the age of 16. The Salmon River is subject to strict regulations and it’s best to head out with a reputable captain if you’re new to the area.

It's cold and most of the fish are hibernating. You can hook Steelhead in the tributaries, however. If the conditions allow for it, head to Oneida Lake to ice fish for Perch and Walleye.


You may find a few Steelhead and Brown Trout in Lake Ontario's tributaries. Ice anglers can also enjoy Oneida Lake if the ice is thick enough.


Steelhead and Brown Trout continue to bite well. Cheer up with the annual Wings and Things Fest for delicious chicken wings, drinks, and raffles.


April through to June is prime time for delicious Brown Trout in the 8–20 lb range. On occassion, Chinook Salmon will show up in Lake Ontario's offshore waters this early as well. 


Smallmouth Bass makes for a reliable spring target. Walleye anglers can also rejoice – the season is officially open! Get on the Brown Trout bite while it’s hot, too. 



This is the month for Smallmouth Bass, so prepare your tackle box accordingly.  Brown Trout continues to bite well.


July is still great for Smallmouth Bass, and the Brown Trout are active too. For Steelhead, use light tackle for great results.


Activity begins to heat up for Salmon, usually Coho first, as they begin their spawning season at the end of August. Brown Trout continues to be active, and Smallmouth Bass is still good.


This is the month for Chinook and Coho. Once in the river, their focus is on spawning, not eating, so traditional lures won’t work here. The Salmon River will get very crowded for the next two months.


This is one of the best times to go after both Chinook and Coho Salmon. The Salmon run is nearing it's end, so get your lines in the water as fast as possible and observe all the regulations for the area. 


This is your last chance to catch Salmon. After they die off, you can concentrate on catching the remaining Steelhead and Brown Trout.


December is a good month for catching Brown Trout and Steelhead. Join in the Christmas festivities in Pulaski and celebrate the end of a great fishing season!
