Conditions : Lake Ontario & Tributaries : Water levels remain extremely high, resulting in some boat launch closures. The north launch at Fort Niagara State Park is open, but the launch bulkheads are a few inches underwater. You will need knee high boots and a someone to help. There is limited launching at Wilson-Tuscarora State Park. The launch bulkheads are 10 inches under water and inaccessible. Waders are needed to launch directly in center of launch. Olcott Harbor launch is open with no real issues. Town of Wilson and Golden Hill State Park launches are closed. Boaters on Lake Ontario should be on the look-out for floating debris at all times.

King salmon (Chinook salmon) is improving off Niagara County, with the best action between Niagara Bar and Wilson. Catches seem to be on the rise, but with salmon tournaments on consecutive weekends, specific information on water and lure depths is tough to find. Anglers have done well for a mix of trout and salmon off the Niagara Bar drop, with king salmon, steelhead and lake trout all mentioned. Spoons, flasher-fly combos and meat rigs are good salmon offerings. As waters clear, look for the brown trout bite to pick back up inside 25 feet of water. Plenty of coho salmon have also shown in the nearshore zone this spring.

Tributaries, Harbors & Piers Harbors are high and muddy and pier sites are dangerous due to high and rough water. Fishing is on hold in those areas.
