Hi everyone, It's about time I woke the reports up. It's April 20th and we are all about a month behind this year due to the long cold winter. Temps are still chilly on Lake Ontario and will be for another month or so. Remember, if its warm in town...it isn't that way on the Lake Ontario shoreline.
Fishing out in front of Olcott is phenomenal right now. They are smacking those cohos, browns and lakers so often, we literally talked to guys who said it was so ridiculously good it wore them out. They pulled lines and came in. They were slamming so many fish (catch and release), they were inside 100 fow fishing between Olcott and 3 to 4 miles east. They decided to go out to a little deeper water and it was almost as wild. They were taking an average of a laker every 10 minutes, instead of every 5. That's when they decided their arms couldn't take it anymore and pulled lines. Imagine fishing being too good. Well, that's what spring in Olcott is like this week.
That is except for those pier and fishing Burt Dam. I would say blah on that one right now as this last set of kicking winds chased them all out to sea. Pier fishing shut down and so did Burt Dam this last week due to the wind and the mud. It was decent Monday...but by Wednesday..it was bye bye fishies. Hopefully it picks right back up , depending on the wind directions.
There is so much going on this fishing season - it will be busy here. If you plan on coming to Olcott...well they are right in front and biting on almost anything right now. No special color, almost everything is working. You could probably put a Slim Jim on a hook and get a fish at this point. Just be sure to work out those arms before you get here...because right now...it's reeely good fishing. Have a great day and Happy Easter!
