Palm Springs Salmon Fishery is your best chance of catching an Atlantic Salmon on rod and line, in the last two seasons the average catch was 2.79 per day ticket and 88% of visiting anglers went home with a salmon. It's not the same as traditional salmon angling but if you want to feel a salmon pulling on your line this is the place to visit. Here they have been grown in freshwater and are in the silver, feeding stage of their lives, which means we can fish throughout the year. Fishing techniques are very similar to stillwater trout fishing but it's a more interesting challenge, and you need strong tackle, anglers report that they fight as well and in some cases better than their wild relatives. The lake is fully stocked so there are always salmon present to fish for and ice aside is always fishable. All anglers, especially new visitors, are very welcome and plenty of helpful free advice is available at the start of each day.
