Large and smallmouth bass, coho and atlantic salmon, rainbow trout, walleye, lake trout, perch, northern pike, carp and several others.

It is that time again Ė Fishing is about to be incredible here in Olcott and up to Burt Dam. It has been really good at the dam for about two weeks. Plenty of browns, cohos, kings and a few steelhead. It was quite funny at first to see so few people fishing there having a blast. It did pick up and there are plenty of areas to catch fish here in town. Fishermanís Park opens at 5 am, but you canít fish until 6:45 or so when it is dawn. Some of the diehards sit in their vehicles waiting to get that good spot at the dam for hours. Some time it for the mid-day break because those fish are there all day long.

Fishing the creeks has been tough until now. Itís about to be awesome. The water has been too warm, so plenty of fish have been jumping and even beaching themselves trying to find cooler water and do their thing. This run is probably going to be one of the best in years according to local anglers who have been fishing it for years. Eighteen Mile and the harbor should be a major hot spot this weekend.

Boats in the harbor and pierhead area are doing great. Night fishing has been really good and casting a spoon or spinner has been working great.

Egg sacs, skein, woolys , yarn, even sponges have been fun at the dam. Skein and eggs down the creek. Bring rain gear if you are fishing tonite or tomorrow. If you watch the weather radar there are only brief periods Saturday where it looks like we are going to get that heavy rain. None of us predict that right, so check it out before you go fishing this weekend. Sunday is going to rock because those cooler temps are finally arriving. Itís pretty odd to call 60 degrees cooler temps when it is mid-October.

The marina cleaning station is closed for the season. There is a Burt Dam smokehouse and fish cleaning station across from the park. Have a great day!
