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.

Olcott has some major projects underway. They have just begun work on a breakwall that will be great for all the boats in the harbor when those north winds roll in. There is a lot more happening here with some extensions of the two piers and more. The east pier is closed for construction. The west pier is still open.

Sunday, September 19th - It' that time again. Time to change up the fishing and get ready for fall. The Olcott piers are still closed for construction and I will post here as soon as any changes occur. Since fishing is really good right now, boats fishing inside will have no problem having a great day. Salmon are staging big time and porpoising all over in the lake in front of the harbor.

They released some water from the Erie Canal into Eighteen Mile this year thanks to some great friends who worked hard on that issue from last year. We had a rough run last year with no water flowing at Burt Dam and in the creek here. For some reason all the water was released east of our area and fishing wasn't its productive self. We all have a feeling the run is starting and I couldn't tell you a better time than now to beat the crowds and do some boat fishing in the harbor and in front of the piers. A few kings have already tried to jump up the dam. Poor fish, what a life.

The weather is still warm and there still is real good fishing offshore . But if you want to save on gas and are aching for pier fishing here, get in a boat and have a great time fishing close.

Oak Orchard is kicking up also and salmon are starting to go in the river. Options are good and the cooler weather will be showing up at the end of this week along with the start of Fall. Have a great day.
