Good morning, it is Wednesday, September 21st and the last full day of summer. It's another 85 degree roaster and those fish are stacking like crazy out here but....they just aren't ready to bite inside. The few that are fishing are having difficulty getting anything to move with a 74 degree lake. That makes it non-productive. The guys I talk to are going out in 200 to 400 searching around, getting a few bites. Nothing major - those guys are all sitting inside waiting for some cooler temps and a good flow. Perch are coming into the harbors in Wilson and Olcott and they are catching a few fish off the piers. It's going to be a good run; it's just a little delayed. Hang in there - enjoy the good summer temps . It's almost time for the fall salmon and trout. We will keep you updated. Have a great day.

Good morning, it is Sunday, September 18th . We have a little rain and a breeze in Olcott today to get those fish moving. Fish are at the mouth of Olcott harbor and Wilson harbor. All the matures are inside 40 fow. Itís about time they start biting and fall fishing kicks in. Weíll let you know how good they are doing out here. There arenít a lot of people fishing yet, but there will be any time now. Wes over at Slippery Sinker wants you to know he has a ton of egg sacs and skein - all ready for that prime fishing. Have a great day.

Good morning, it is Saturday, September 17th . Fishing is the same as it was on the last report as the weather has been on and off again. Itís a little cooler but still hot and humid and will be for another week according to the weather reports. There arenít many fishing as it is changeover season here. There needs to be a good rain to get that water moving to bring them in closer. I havenít heard any news on anyone pier fishing yet. Itís almost that time. Weíll have a lot more action as soon as that water gets moving.

The Celtic Festival is in Krull park this weekend. Maybe the sound of all those bagpipes will get those fish biting. It's a great festival if you are in Olcott this weekend. Have a great day.

Good morning, it is Monday, September 12 . The weather is super again today and fishing is really good. The king and brown bite has been good anywhere from 60 to 220 fow. The big Steelies are still deep - 400+ feet of water, deep reds, chartruese, yellows & melons. Straight north of Olcott and NW of Wilson. Pier fishing is picking up a small amount Ė but honestly Ė there arenít a lot of people fishing. The humidity this last two months has been putting a drag on everyones feet instead of their lines. It has been unpredictable and just plain odd fishing. Itís been more of a feastĖ than the famine we had going on in all that heat. Charters that are still in the water are limiting out early in the morning. Cut bait has still been hot. Walleye and bass fishing is decent down by the Niagara Bar and those kings are jumping on into the lower Niagara. If I was fishing for kings on the lake; the month I would pick is definitely September. Itís so peaceful and there is hardly anyone to run over your junk. Charter captains are making up that weird summer fishing by taking their clients out and showing off their triples and quads. Itís a great time to fish. Have a great day.
