LOC LEADERBOARD

Welcome to our website where we provide boating and fishing info and news for the western part of Lake Ontario and its tributaries in New York State. We share links to other fishing reports, weather,charters, lodging and important fishing and boating related websites. We are located in Olcott, New York a great place to hook up with several species of fish. Best known for the incredible chinook (king) salmon, steelhead and brown trout fishing, we also have plenty of other species to make it a fishing adventure worth checking out. Large and smallmouth bass, coho and atlantic salmon, rainbow trout, walleye, lake trout, perch, northern pike, carp and several others.



Thursday, May 16 - Fishing here on the west end changed up from awesome to just decent. The weather this winter seems to have made a difference and those big kings are swimming the entire lake. I'm really not sure because the biggest one we saw so far was that nice 25 pound winner that won George Prentice from Smicksburg, PA a nice $15,000. There has been a lot of action in the area as far as tournaments. The Wilson 3 bagger is on - with the Salmon Slam, the $1k a Day and the Wilson Harbor Invitational this week. Those are some sweet tournaments that bring a lot of people to the area.

Everyone is catching fish. It is mostly 14 to 16 pound kings. Half the captains are in town from the other end of the lake and those fish decided to play head games with them and head to their home ports. It is the strangest year ever so far because May on the west end is usually on fire. Since the winter didn't see any ice on the lake, the fish are on the move. It's been a spoon and meat bite. Green seems to be the hottest color right now. The lake is calm today and it is a great day to fish.
