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.



Monday, July 19th - Fishing Lake Ontario has been wild this season. It goes up and down like an elevator. With the weather reports being wrong much of the time, boaters and anglers are confused everywhere. This last weekend saw a slew of confusion. Predictions for calm days turned into big rollers. For those OMG calls for 9 footers, there was barely a roll. Maybe the meteorologists are busy studying meteors instead of actual weather.

The Summer LOC ends on July 25th. Time to grab a spot and win some of that 33k in cash. Reports are all over the place so giving you a good heads up isn't going to help much. We are hearing everything from 225 to 350 to the deepest part of the lake you can find. Some are catching one or two. Some are pulling limits of steelhead and kings. Giant browns seemed to be down at the Oak along with the new LOC leader caught by a 13 year old boy. It's very smart to take a kid with you to reel in that big one because they don't have to pay taxes! So grab your kids and take them fishing this week. Those big guys are out there. Have a great day.
