Wilson & Olcott, NY tributary and Lake Ontario fishing update.

Posted on October 18th, 2013

Chinook Salmon fishing should get better in all Upper NY tributaries as air temperatures drop and we receive some significant precipitation drawing fish into the tributaries.

Bill Hills Jr. Reports. Recent rains put some water into streams but it might not be enough to make much of a difference. Eighteen Mile Creek and Burt Dam is seeing some salmon and a few trout according to Greg at “All in the Same Boat” Bait and Tackle, a new shop that opened up in the Blessings Plaza, 2911 South Main Street in Newfane, NY. Their new phone number is 638-4158. With the cold nights, it could start to pull more salmon in. What we really need is a good cold rain. Some salmon and browns, as well as a few steelhead are still being caught at the dam and off the piers in Wilson and Olcott, NY. Lake Ontario anglers are also picking up a few fish. Staging salmon seem to be cruising the shoreline, waiting for a trigger for the bigger runs to start. Out deeper, a mixed bag is being reported. If you are planning on fishing Upper NY and you are an Ontario resident, NY fishing licences need to be renewed at the end of September of each year.
