Rayno's Fishing Excursions

Come experience legendary fishing on Lake Ontario and it's tributary waters, including the famed Salmon River in Pulaski, NY with Captain Zack Rayno.

June 2018 Update -- Things are looking pretty silvery!

Greetings fishy folk!

Well, as I had assumed, the fishing is fantastic out here on Lake Ontario.  

Not only did our Brown Trout bite not disappoint right out of the gate, but just a bit offshore a strong Salmon bite is happening...doesn't get better than that!  

On board the Dixie Dandy it has been a typical Spring/Early Summer mish-mash of rods.  As a true thermocline has yet to develop, we're left with a bunch of homogenized water in which fish are comfortable.  Simply put, they're anywhere from 2 feet to 130 feet below the surface.  This means spread out the spread!

Bites have been consistent on spoons, but now our attractors coupled with A-TOM-MIK flies have started to take off.  Some A-TOM-MIK meat rigs have gone as well.  Stand-by spoons like NBK, Diehard, Tuxedo and their UV variations have been the ticket.  As far as flies, Hammer, Crinkle Green Glow and Stud have done the trick.

As for me, I have been kicking around on some inland waters for all kinds of finned critters...why not fish on my days off?!

Next order of business...fall dates!

I am starting to book up lots of September-November and want to make sure everyone who is looking to come up has the opportunity.  

I will outline my available dates:


Early (6pm start) night fishing for salmon:


There are plenty of late starts (1230am) available, just contact me and we can find a slot.





Well that's my two-sense for now!  I hope everybody has a fishy summer and I'm looking forward to spending some time on the water together.

See ya out there!
