Looking back at the steelhead season, overall it went well. Despite dealing with higher water conditions for most of the season, we had good numbers of fish and the drop back fishing during the month of May was very good. Were going into the slow time of the year on the river and the focus will now shift to smallmouth bass, resident brown trout and the occasional Atlantic Salmon. The lake fishing is off to a great start and during the month of May the king salmon and brown trout fishing was excellent. Typically early in the season the best salmon fishing on the lake is in the western basin of Lake Ontario, but during the month of May anglers experienced very good salmon fishing from Oswego all the way to the Niagra River. This is a good sign and were very excited about the upcoming fall season. If you haven't already made plans for the fall, you still have time. The open motel dates for the upcoming fall 2018 salmon/steelhead season are posted on the motel page of the website.
