New York’s Lake Ontario

Here’s a look at what’s in store for New York’s Lake Ontario anglers
The western basin is the traditional hotspot for spring salmon, and both fishermen and charter captains are expecting another great year, building on the past two record seasons, according to Bill Hilts, sport-fishing coordinator for Niagara County.
“Our spring chinook fishery will start as usual with a bang in April, and never stopped until September, when unseasonably warm weather seemed to put salmon runs on hold for a few weeks,” he reported. “The spring salmon fishing was easily the best we’ve had in 15 years, and the rest of the season wasn’t far behind.”
