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


MAY 2023



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.



Memorial Day Monday , May 29th Its another fantastic weather day for spending time on the water. The weather is great. Fishing is picky. Its been a little tougher this last few days for everyone out there. Fish is tougher, but its still awesome on the lake. Most are doing better working the Wilson area for those kings and a few cohos.

This is another tournament week here on the west end. The Niagara Pro-Am is June 3rd and 4th. The Don Johannes Memorial tournament is Thursday, June 1st. You can register for that one at Bootleggers Cove Marina, Wilson Boatyard Gas Shack and the Boat Doctors. Entry deadline is by 6 am the day of the tournament. Entry fee is 100 dollars per boat. Its your best three fish pays 1st, 2nd and 3rd place 500, 250 and 150. Max is 3 fish per cooler with no ice or water. All awards are paid in cash and $100 going to Niagara Hospice. For the ProAm, everyone is already entered.

Burt Dam has been decent for people looking for some fun. It's been catch and release. Haven't heard of any big ones in the harbors yet.

Today is 50 cent wing night at Maxwell station and turkey dinners at Valentines on the Lake.

Oranges and greens have been good colors for trolling. Enjoy your Memorial Day!
