Amenities

Perfect for

Adventuring upstate

    Experience all that Altmar and the Salmon River region offers, with your base at Tailwater Lodge. Let us organize your action-packed day – from snowmobiling to hiking. If you need a break from Mother Nature, head indoors for beer and wine tastings.

Fishing

    From September – November the Salmon River sees epic runs of Chinook (King) and Coho salmon. Try your hand at landing some of the largest freshwater game fish in the world, with many pushing past 20 pounds.

    As the Kings and Cohos begin to spawn, dime-bright steelhead begin to enter the river. Join anglers from all over the world, trying to land one of these acrobatic trophies.

    Stay October – late spring for steelhead season. Summer-run steelhead, show up around June, and are most abundant after heavy rains.
