Hi Evan…In the program you saw I fished first at Slater Creek (Greece, NY-suburb of Rochester, NY), and than I fished Eigtheen Mile in Olcott, NY. It sounds like you have not seen the Upper NY tributaries that flow into Lake Onatario this fall. You will be shocked when you see how low the water is, especially in Olcott, NY. The water is so low that the NY DEC “bulldozed” the lower section of the creek (just south of the abutments) because it was almost dried-up. Now there is a”2-4\'”, high “berm” that angles down the middle of the river. They also placed large limestone rocks throghout the river to help create some small 2-3\’ holes for the fish to hold. It\’s a sad situation, there are rainbows, browns and chinook in, but they have not water and no where to go. They just swim around and have no interest in hitting baits, flies or lures…tough fishing. I probalby won\’t be down there unless we have some significant rain….God bless you, Italo
