FISHING REPORT & NEWS
NOVEMBER 2017
FREE FISHING IN NYS - SATURDAY, NOV 11

Niagara USA - Bill Hilts Forecast



Friday, November 10 - Not much changed since yesterday so far - other than the temperature. It was snowing here in Olcott early this morning. The winds were cranking and just maybe it brought some flow into these creeks. The cold temps are going to de-cloud the water and that is a good thing. It is one brisk day out there and anglers are starting to pack up the dam. Elbow to elbow fishing might be the key today to keep each other warm (smile).
Not too sure how Johnson (aka Fish)
Creek is today - but I would guess that is the place to be. Hopefully the fish are biting better at the dam today and everyone has a great time. Have a good day.
Free fishing in New York State tomorrow!

Thursday, November 9 - Fishing is changing up here in Olcott and the local tributaries. We didnít get as much water and rain as everyone else did surrounding us and the creeks are all screwy. The latest info I can give you right now will probably change by tomorrow. Johnson Creek is where itís at and after the wind blows today Ė wellÖ.itís going to be a fish fest down there. It is loaded with steelies and browns. It will be ripping later today when these winds pick up and the lake starts getting too noisy and wild to fish the piers (which are also very good right now for some hot fighting steelie and male brown action). Twelve mile and Keg Creek are apparently unfishable. Some were saying Johnson Creek was. There is a lot of mud now in the creeks. Burt Dam is all mudded up and those kings and trout are not biting like they were. These guys that are fishing the wrong way tell me it is a snagfest and that just isnít cool. There are several fishing the right way and catching less than they expected, but they are catching fish. Bill ( the fish cleaner guy) spent his day cleaning more fish the guys brought from Johnson Creek , than Burt Dam. There are fresh steelies and browns coming in the harbor here at Eighteen Mile. Havenít seen too many using a boat (and that would be a great idea right about now since some new ones are on their way. Enjoy your day Ė Stay out of the way of flying objects this afternoon. A wind advisory goes into affect. Have a great day.
