Wednesday May 15 - It's finally starting to warm up outside. The lake is a little high and launching out of Newfane Town Marina is just fine. Fishing is decent on the west end. Temps have moved around a lot and those fish are in several different locations. Yesterday, guys were catching kings in 20 fow. Today it has been touch and go with a lot of marks and a few bites. Captain Matt Bedient had a decent morning in 60 fow and most of his hits were on spoons.
A few guys were east and didn't do too well. Reports have it that 60 fow near the red barn (just west of Olcott - you can't miss it) has some decent kings that are choosing when they want to bite. Apparently kings are swimming right up to the lures and saying "Not Today" and swimming off. I have heard many stories of fish that aren't biting. That is when the meat comes in handy - when the fish aren't biting. A few guys couldn't get them to bite anything; they put meat down and wham. Fish on.
Nothing huge has come out of here yet, but we are just starting to see a few more people around. There have been a lot of "just under 20 " kings, some decent browns and plenty of lakers biting. There is apparently some hot action loaded with kings and bait in 400 fow. Those guys are also picky on what they want to eat.
Over at the Niagara Bar - temps are 41 degrees and perfect for fishing. A few hits on cohos and smaller kings there. According to many people - fish are all over the place.
With the LOC in full swing and just a few days left - it might be a great weekend to do some trolling. The Wilson Harbor Invitational is this weekend along with the Salmon Slam and 1K a Day derbies.
Hopefully the rain is slowing up a bit and it is one enjoyable weekend coming up. Have a great day.
