  1. Chinook Salmon Marking Projects

    ï‚· In 2008, NYSDEC purchased an automated fish marking trailer (AutoFish) which is capable of

    adipose clipping and/or applying coded wire tags (CWTs) to salmon and trout at high speed

    and accuracy. To determine the proportions of wild and hatchery Chinook salmon in Lake

    Ontario, all Chinook salmon stocked by New York and Ontario from 2008-2011 were marked

    with an adipose fin clip. Percentages of wild Chinook salmon in Lake Ontario varied by year

    class and age and among regions from 2009-2015. The wild study was completed in 2015 and

    overall, wild Chinook were an important component of the Lake Ontario fishery averaging

    47% of the age 2 & 3 Chinooks harvested in the lake.

  2. Pap, Fall  COMBAT fishing in front of the pier heads is my least favorite fishing, ‘’swimming zombies’’.  Might just as well fish Lake Trout.  The battle is about the same. 


    Thanks skipper19 and ITS.

  3. I'm glad to read that the west and center produce. On the east end there is a lot of quantity,but when you need 4 fish to get 3 pounds it takes the fun out of it.




    Just hang in there they are headed your way!!  you know how it is, you have been doing this along time.  Fish circle the lake from west to east so it won’t be long now!!  Chin up and fish ON!

  4. I had the chance to go out fishing yesterday (6/10/16) with Capt; Rich and Capt Steve aboard the Fired Up.  We set up in 80 fow and head north to 200 fow.   All fish were caught out of temp in warm water.  The color of the day by far was green most of the fish came of the  rigger’s with a few coming on the junk lines.  The fish were all over the water column.  I lost a big silver screamer way way way behind the boat.  The fish jumped out of the water and GONE!  My uncle Bill wanted some of the larger Salmon for the smoker and the smaller Steelhead, Salmon for some “sammiches†so we kept a few for him.   Felt great to be back on the water again and I am looking forward to getting back out there again ASAP.  I sold my boat but am looking to buy another REEL soon, so if anyone hears of a GREAT deal on a boat please let me know.
