In early June I may have to go to Pulaski, NY for business. Looking at a map, I see the Salmon River and Lake Ontario nearby. Any suggested places to paddle that would be of interest?

If 750 cfs, or more, good class II-III whitewater from Rt2a to the Black Hole in Pulaski. Paddled it yesterday. Smiles.

There are several State Parks on the Lake Ontario shore in that area.

If you want scenic head north(approx 45 min-1hr)to the St.Lawrence River/1000 Islands. Check it out. You won't be disappointed.

hi andy,,,what hrs would you have available to do things? work all day and have evening hrs to kill?

go up a day early. June 6th and 7th would be business days.

If your adding a extra day ...then i would suggest the Lakeview WMA ponds accessed from Montario PT. RD. launch over to Big Sandy , downstream on the big Sandy to the mouth and then back up. that trip alone would kill a few hrs easily. The 1000 islands trip ( to Alex bay) would be an all day trip, and the St Lawrence River is not all that kayak friendly(IMO) Heart Castle in A-Bay is a POI.
Salmon River Reservoir...|

Salmon River Reservoir is a nice paddle. Located on County Route 17 in Redfield, NY, there is a small parking lot before the bridge leading into Redfield, rocky launch for small boats (canoes, kayaks, jon boats). Can cover 7-8 miles if you desire! When water is high enough, if you go under the bridge and over to the more weeded side, you can get into a local stream and travel a ways on that as well.

May be a moot point though. I'll be definitly going, but on the way up from NJ, I have to drop stuff off for my son in the Catskills. Won't have room on the roof for a boat. Bringing him some furniture for his new digs.
