An Outdoors Paradise
Sport fishing opportunities in Western New York and Southern Ontario are endless. In 2012, Olcott Beach in the Town of Newfane was recognized by the World Fishing Network as the Ultimate Fishing Town after a nationwide vote. While we won’t diminish the magnitude of that feat, the fishing there is only a small piece of our fishing tackle box. The glamour fish – the one that attracts the most attention from the angling fraternity – is the Chinook or King salmon in Lake Ontario. According to the state’s Department of Environmental Conservation, the fishing for salmon the last 12 years was the best it’s ever been in the 28 year history of the lake creel census! Yes, it’s that good, with fish regularly topping the 30 pound mark. Bring your own boat or hire a charter captain – we have the access and the professional fleet to meet your every need.
If you're land bound, there is great shore fishing along the Niagara Gorge; Burt Dam and 18 Mile Creek, as well as other Great Lakes (Erie and Ontario) tributaries; the piers at Wilson and Olcott; Buffalo and Dunkirk; the NYPA Fishing Platform in Devil’s Hole and power reservoir; the Erie Canal; and a long list of other area hot spots. In fact, pick up a copy of the Greater Niagara Hot Spot Fishing Map to help plan your adventure. A weekly fishing report is currently recorded at 1-877-FALLS-US and is also on the website at www.niagara-usa.com.
Niagara USA is also an excellent area for birding, recognized internationally as an Important Bird Area. A Niagara River Greenway Corridor is currently being developed from Buffalo to Youngstown. Add in biking, hiking, boating and all the paddle sports to satisfy your outdoor needs. The best place to be to find out about all of this information?
