By day, reel in trophy fish on the Salmon River; by night, spread out at this luxury lodge on the banks of the river in Altmar.

The Destination
Stocked annually with thousands of salmon, New York's aptly named Salmon River offers some of the best fly-fishing in the world. Teeming with coho, steelhead, and chinook, the river begins at Lake Ontario, winding through dense forest, past sleepy towns, and under picturesque bridges on its way to the Salmon River Reservoir. At the eastern side of the stream lies Altmar, home of the largest fish hatchery in New York—making this town of fewer than 500 people the perfect spot to don your waders, cast a line, and reel in a trophy. Off the river, you might consider angling for trout in Lake Ontario or hitting a nearby hiking trail for a quiet day in the woods.

The Digs
Home of the most luxurious accommodations on the river, the Tailwater Lodge—the site of a former elementary school—is New York's answer to the upscale fishing lodges found out West. Opened in 2014, Tailwater offers 42 guest rooms decorated with plush leather furnishings and marble accents, and each features cable TV, a fridge, and free Wi-Fi. Also on-site is the high-end restaurant, serving rustic yet cosmopolitan fare such as grilled beef tenderloin with a Cabernet demi-glace, and a pro shop stocked with top fishing-gear brands.

The Diversions
No matter the season, the river is bulging with fish big and small, from three-pound smallmouth bass to 30-pound chinook salmon. Make your way to the lodge's very own guide concierge captain, who can set guests up on drift-boat trips, charter excursions on Lake Ontario, and summer rafting adventures on the river. Then again, since the Tailwater boasts 2,000 feet of river frontage, you might just take to the stream on your own.

The Details
• Taxes and resort fees are not included—you'll pay those directly to the property

  • The people were all unbelievably friendly and helpful—the garden staff, the receptionists, the waitresses, EVERYBODY! [...] Overall, an extremely pleasant, enjoyable, and interesting adventure staying there.
