Olcott, New York, is a small town with big fishing. Located in Niagara County, and in close proximity to the famous falls, the town has got a lot going for it – including world-class fishing. Head out on an Olcott fishing trip to start your angling adventure on Lake Ontario and you won’t be disappointed!

The lake hosts some of the best freshwater fishing in the country, and this is a great place to make the most of it. Without a doubt, the top catch anglers come in pursuit of is Chinook Salmon. Come early fall, you can also snag spawning Coho Salmon. Following closely behind in popularity are Steelhead, Lake and Brown Trout, as well as Walleye and Bass.

The lake can be fished year-round but is at its absolute best between April and October. If you’re here during that time frame, don’t skip a full day trip. It’ll give you your best shot at hooking delicious fish like Salmon, and take full advantage of the fishery. Don’t have that much time to spare? Half day trips allow you to hone your skills and catch various Trout.

The fishing action in Olcott is centered around the lake, so you’ll find most charters docked in the Eighteen Mile Creek. After that, it’s just a short ride to the deepest harbor in Lake Ontario.

Rules & Regulations

If you’re heading out with a licensed charter captain, they’ll provide you with fishing gear. What you’ll be responsible for is purchasing a New York fishing license for all anglers over the age of 16.

January

The lake is quite in January, but there's still fishing to be done. If the weather conditions allow for it, you can ice fish for Walleye and Northern Pike. 

February

Winter fishing on Lake Ontario isn't for the faint for heart. If you are willing to brave the cold, however, you could be rewarded with delicious Brown Trout. 

March

Spring is nearing and it's finally not as bitingly cold. March is also when things start getting more interesting for anglers! The Browns are big, hungry, and eager to bite. Smaller specimens make for a delicious dinner!

April

Depending on how cold the previous winter was, you could start to find Chinook and Coho Salmon in the lake's western basin. Otherwise, Lake and Brown Trout make for reliable and tasty targets. 

May

King and Coho Salmon are likely congregating along the shorelines and in neashore waters. If you know where to go, you could even hook a few of these fish in as little time as a half day trip!

June

Is there a better way to spend a summer day than on the lake? The prospect of hooking Chinook and Coho Salmon makes it even better. Hook 'em before they head into deeper and colder waters. 

July

July is an amazing fishing month on Lake Ontario. The weather is great and the fish are biting hot. Salmon make their way into deeper and colder waters, so head out on a full day trip and troll for your limits. 

August

Slowly but surely, the Chinook Salmon head into the lake's tributarties to spawn. They'll usually enter from Mexico Bay so head there and hook 'em while they're fresh and eager to bite. 

September

It's primetime in the lake's tributaries. The Salmon are spawning, which means they're big and aggressive. Don't underestimate their power as they strike your line. 

October

It's peak Chinook and Coho Salmon fishing season. Catch them while they're still in the tributaries and go home with some delicious meat for dinner!

November

This is your last chance to hook into delicious Coho and Chinook Salmon. Head into the mouths of the streams and rivers and bundle up! It's chill out there. 

December

If you're a lone wolf, you'll love winter fishing. You can still hook into Trout, Pike, and Walleye. The bonus is you won't have to deal with the crowds!

The fishing at Olcott has been very good. The salmon have been staying in the Olcott area and are hitting with some consistency. Last summer and so far in 2019, fishing has been the best it has been in years. First time fishermen will be surprised at how strong the salmon are and the tremendous, drag-screaming runs by these fish.

Capt Craig and Mark were both awesome guys to hang out with. The winds got aggressive and we had 5 feet waves… very difficult conditions. They just worked through the difficulty and made sure that we caught some fish. It was a great experience, and we’ll be back next year!

We had a great experience with Captain Craig and 1st mate Chuck. They really helped us to have an enjoyable time despite the rough sea conditions. They put us on some nice fish including a 24 lb king salmon, the biggest salmon we’ve ever caught. We had a 10 yr old and a 7 yr old and they had a great time as well because of the friendly and courteous crew. I would highly recommend these guys to anyone who has a family or just wants to have a great day on the water.

We went out on a beautiful morning. Caught a 15# king before the third rig was set. Only ended up with one other fish but it was a beautiful 8# coho.(we had for dinner that night) dockhands were surprised when we got back to the docks as everyone else that had come in was skunked. So captain Anthony got us fish when no one else could. We're planning on going back next year and do it again. Great time.

A great overall trip. Captain Anthony did a great job throughout even with the rainy weather. Worked always helpful and constantly monitoring the active lures. Shared some of his insights on techniques that work best to catch fish and also some fascinating facts on the demographics of the lake itself and the fishery. Will be booking again.
