Hello fellow hunting and fishing aficionados, welcome to Bear Treks. This is my blog to give you useful and current reports on my own outings and information that has been sent to me from knowledgeable sportsmen that just might help you in your pursuit of fish and game.

Papa Bear Outdoors is my company based in Binghamton N.Y. I am an inventor of unique cutting edge products designed to make your precious time afield as successful as possible. This is also your link to some of the best wild trout fishing in the East if not the whole country.




The fun just keeps coming

Wow what a spring! The water just keeps falling and if this keeps up I will be starting a new company that builds arks. Once it warms up there is going to be some fantastic fishing with the rivers being at these heights going into May. I anticipate June as being amazing up in the Adirondacks, with fly hatches reaching biblical proportions on a daily basis. I highly recommend giving me a call about coming up to sample some of the best trout fishing in the country. I am anticipating this year being one that features some videos that will be jaw dropping. We are in our 10th year of mandated catch and release policies and the results are showing. The average fish ten years ago was 10-14 inches, now it is 16-18 with numerous fish in the 20+ range. This is as good as it gets anywhere and you can drive here in one day from most of the east coast. Give us a call I don’t think you will regret it!!!!

THUNDER STICKS

Not this thunder stick but that was the hot item for the guys at lake Ontario the other day. They ended up with 15 Browns and 4 salmon plus a lot of short strikers. They also said that a few other boats did even better on the edge of the stained water and by the way they were fishing out of Mexico Bay and not Oswego Harbor. Turkey season has now started and some monsters have been taken with one 22#, 9 inch beard and another one 20 # with a 11 inch beard. Oh yeah plus they got Bin Laden and he had like a 15 inch beard, so all in all it was a FANTASTIC opening day. They got the biggest turkey of all. Streams continue to remain high and more rain is on the way. The northern ADK have been spared and water levels aren’t that bad. The trout are having an easy year so far as far as the anglers go.

How highs the water?

Oakie didn’t have to bend much to get a drink. The dog loves the pristine Adirondack waters to drink and play in. Here at the home office in the southern tier of NY water levels are at flood stage. Local streams are unfishable unless you are in the head of the headwaters. I did get a report of some beautiful trout being caught in the Derytur area with one of the stream browns exceeding the 20 inch mark. My buddy Mark forgot his camera so I have no pictures but all were released and are waiting for you. I received a report from the Salmon River at Pulaski and the steelhead are hammering. My reporter lives their and said that he caught 6 on Sunday and never had to move from where he was standing. All were in the 6-8# range. I also got a report from the Lake at Oswego and my friends were slaying the browns just outside the harbor. One of the browns topped the 12# mark. That was yesterday 8/27. The Adirondack report in the northern section is that they have been spared the torrential downpours that have ravaged much of the rest of the state and with temperatures near 80 for a few days things are getting ready to explode up there. Here I am with a broken ankle and not happy!!!!
