1. Lake Ontario and tributaries - New York State’s Free Fishing Weekend is
set for this weekend, June 25-26, and there are plenty of events for the
entire family to keep people busy - and happy – right here in Western New
York! In this day and age where nothing seems to be for free any more, the
Empire State will offer up an opportunity to fish all around the state
without purchasing a license. You do have to follow the fishing regulations
in the water you intend to fish however. For salmon and trout, action has
started to heat up a little bit out of Wilson and Olcott. Boats have been
heading out to 350 feet and beyond off Wilson for a mix of steelies and
kings. Action has been a bit closer off Olcott, with some fish being taken
in as close as 100 feet of water according to Capt. Vince Pierleoni. 100 to
180 feet of water – when they can get out there. DW Spoons are the primary
enticement, but don’t rule out flasher-fly or flasher-cut bait, especially
for bigger fish. Target the top 60 feet according to Wes Walker at The
Slippery Sinker. There are also fish in the 330 to 380 depth contour. The
Summer LOC Derby is set for July 1-31. Go to www.loc.org for details. More
cash is up for grabs. The Olcott Lions Club will be hosting its annual kids
fishing contest on Saturday, June 25 at the Town of Newfane Marina in Olcott
from 8 a.m. to noon. Get the kids out and enjoy the local fishing.
