Welcome to our all in one site for all your fishing, boating, weather and event needs for Western Lake Ontario and the surrounding areas.
JUNE 2018


Sunday, June 17 – Happy Father’s Day to all the dads. The weather has been incredible for enjoying the lake. Fishing was getting “June tough” and now seems to have picked up for the better. There hasn’t been that many fishing or boating in Olcott the last couple of weeks so it’s been rough to get any reports. We finally got some lake info yesterday. There were even people limited out by 7:30 am. That's almost too early to limit out.

Out in 500 fow – or the 30/31 lines fishing was great yesterday for mid-20’s kings. Down 70 and mixed veggie, or orange, green and lemon colored spoons were very productive.

In closer over by the “microwave” (which is the cell tower east of Olcott between Olcott and the Somerset power plant), browns and 12-18 pound kings were very productive. Fishing early evening has it’s perks. Green, white, green and glow spoons working well.

Water temps are all over the place and it gets real confusing for anglers and the fish. Some are trolling the shoreline for those bass and it’s been okay too. Haven’t really seen or heard much in the way of people fishing the dam, the piers or the creeks – so I can’t give you much there. June is typically a yawnfest around here and it doesn’t have to be. We have the fish – just need more people to dust off their fishing rods and get out there.

Next weekend is free fishing in New York State – and Saturday the Olcott Kid’s Fishing Derby in the Newfane Town Marina. They are busy setting up for another great day for kids and their families to get out there and fish. The weather is super – get out there and enjoy the lake. Have a great day.
