I recommend fishing for chinook(king) salmon at this time of year at about 70 to 90 feet. Because of their size they are a challenge to land, but worth every minute of the fight. Great eating after they are cleaned and fileted. Bring a camera and take alot of pictures.

Do a little research on what fish are active at different times of the year. Dress for cold weather in early spring.

Fishing was a bit slow at first but picked up around 9:00 AM. It was a post-cold don’t day though so normally the fishing would be even better.

The fishing is plenteous and exciting. However, prepare for swift currents, a tremendous undertow, and do not take the river and lakes lightly.

The King Salmon were biting, so 11 of our 12 fish were those, but our 11-year-old also caught a nice Lake Trout.

Olcott is a small friendly town. Walk around, enjoy the sun, and speak with the locals..... if you want to get a feel for current fishing conditions. I spoke with a few guys at The Time Out Bar & Grill and Big Fatties. Everyone was friendly and had good things to say about Captain Kurt (Stalker Charters). We caught a bunch of fish and had a great time. We were in shorts & t-shirts the entire time. Weather was perfect. Not a bad idea to bring a hoodie or long pants just in case.

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.
