Good Morning, it is Tuesday, October 28th and fishing is still fine in 18 mile and Burt Dam. The weather is currently amazing. It is a great day for being outside. That is going to change late in the afternoon when those winds and rain kick it. The wind and rain just might push some more of those fish down the creek making fishing even better. A lot of people are fishing other streams. If you are heading to Oak Orchard Creek, bring a life jacket. It's looking good for salmon and trout here in Olcott right now. The usual - eggs, flies and skein working great. Watch out where you are tossing that line this week; there just might be someone standing behind you. Have a great day.
Good Morning, it is October 22, and one of those cold damp mornings in Olcott. Most everything has pushed down the creek and into the dam here. I guess you could say its peaking, for whatever we are going to have this season. Most are fishing the dam. Piers slowed up and the wind, waves and cold air has kept most from even attempting that one. The usual October Burt Dam fishing is happening. Flies, eggs, skein. What you really need to do is purchase a NYS fishing license before you arrive if you plan on fishing early in the morning. You can do this online at the links on this page. You can also call the hotline number during regular Monday thru Friday business hours.
The meat people are almost done this season. There happens to be a select group of individuals standing around eating skein out of buckets. Now, basically that is enough to make me want to grab a vomit bag , but luckily I never got to see that in action. Fishing is typical fall at the dam. There arenít as many salmon as usual but there are salmon, browns and steelhead in 18 mile and Burt Dam. Get your waders if you donít have a boat, a nice fly rod and some flies, eggs or skein. Get that skein if you can before these guys eat it all . (Just ew).
The Lower River captains are busy at work if you are looking for a charter for fall or winter. I just donít post as much right now unless there is some hot and heavy new specie of fish or overwhelming amount of information that needs to be posted. There are fish, great sizes and plenty to go around. Have a great day!
You are going to see a few small ads on the website personally picked for readers. If I can help pay for the site, I can devote a lot more time to it and give you lots of info and more reports. They won't be annoying pop ups or anything! Keeping it real. With over a million hits just since I started checking it, it might just be the hottest place to advertise.
