SALMON RIVER REGULATIONS

FISHING HOURS

Fishing at night (one-half hour after sunset until one-half hour before sunrise) is
prohibited, except in the Black River (Jefferson County) from Lake Ontario upstream
to the Route 180 bridge in Dexter, where fishing is permitted at all times, and in
the Salmon River in Oswego County, where fishing at night is permitted from Lake
Ontario to the Route 3 bridge from April 1 through August 14

Fly Fishing only section
Two stream sections between County
Route 52 Bridge in Altmar and the Lighthouse Hill Reservoir.
fishing hours, season dates & boundaries
• Angling Permitted: From one-half hour
before sunrise to one-half hour after
sunset. Trespassing prohibited at night.
• Lower Fly Section: September 15
through May 15. From County Route
52 bridge in Altmar upstream 0.25 mile
to the marked boundary at Beaverdam
Brook.
• Upper Fly Section: April 1 through
November 30. From a marked boundary upstream of the New York State
Salmon River Fish Hatchery property
to marked boundary approximately 0.6
mile upstream at the Lighthouse Hill
Reservoir tail-race.
Regulations:
• Catch & Release: All fish must be
released without unnecessary injury.
• Tackle Restrictions: Tackle is restricted
to a traditional flyrod, flyreel and flyline.
For these areas, a traditional flyline
may be a floating or sinking flyline or
shooting head.

Hooks
• Hooks attached to any lure, except an artificial fly, must be free-swinging.
• Hooks may have a gap (distance between the shank and the point) of no more than one half inch.
• Use of hooks with added weight is prohibited, except that artificial flies with no
more than one-eighth ounce of added weight may be used. For the purposes of
this regulation, the method by which weight is added to a hook does not affect
classification as an “artificial fly” provided the conditions of the definition of an
“artificial fly” (page 12) are otherwise met.
• Only one hook with a single hook point is permitted, except on floating lures, as
outlined below.

Fishing Hours
Fishing at night (one-half hour after sunset until one-half hour before sunrise) is
prohibited, except in the Black River (Jefferson County) from Lake Ontario
upstream
to the Route 180 bridge in Dexter, where fishing is permitted at all times, and in
the Salmon River in Oswego County, where fishing at night is permitted from Lake
Ontario to the Route 3 bridge from April 1 through August 14

Leaders and Weights

• The distance between the hook, artificial fly or lure and any weight attached to
the line or leader, whether fixed or sliding, shall not exceed four feet.
• In addition, when the above special tributary regulations are in effect for Lake
Ontario tributaries in Oswego and Cayuga counties, and the Genesee River
(Monroe
County) from the Driving Park Bridge upstream to the Lower Falls: weight shall
not be added to the line, leader, swivels, artificial fly or lure in any manner such
that the weight hangs lower than the attached hook, artificial fly or lure when the
line or leader is suspended vertically from the rod.
