  1. Just a reminder / request for this weekend out of Fair Haven for anyone fortunate enough to be out on the water or in town in the afternoon. We have over 30 wounded vets planning on coming to Fair Haven to fish this Saturday. Unlike years past there will not be a parade this year due to circumstances (PM me if you have questions), but there will be a meet and greet / opportunity to say thank you from the public at the town pavilion behind the town offices Saturday afternoon. The vets will be meeting at Turtle Cove with the Captains / Boat owners and Mates between 5 and 5:30AM and getting a little breakfast thanks to Brian. From there they will be broken up and hit the water with their teams. Anyone on the water is asked to help out as much as possible if you find a magic depth, color, pattern, speed, etc... to try to help get the rod to bend a few more times for these guys. Lines will be pulled around noon and they will then head to Bayside Marina for some pictures and fish cleaning. After the pictures are taken they will be heading back to town for a chicken barbecue and goodies, as well as "thank you's" from all of us folks who can fish because of their sacrifices. Please feel free to stop by and let them know that what they did is appreciated. Some of these guys are from the most recent wars and some date back to the Vietnam era when there wasn't any thanks given to them when they came back. Thanks in advance.
  2. The net pen fish were released yesterday with success. Thanks to Werner and all of those involved in yesterday's efforts as well as to all who took part in the feeding and care of the fish. Also, once again this could not be done without Bayside marina and Turtle Cove letting us use their docks etc... We will need some help rolling the pens back onto the tarps the weekend of June 23rd after the Wounded Warrior experience wraps up.
  3. I was asked to post this very sad information. It is the same that appears on a couple of FB pages. It is with the heaviest of hearts that this post is made. Kenny Scott, son of Reese Scott and Brother of Cody Scott, and Member of the "Gray Fox" Fishing Team has passed away. Please take some time to pray for him and his family and take some time to remember him while out on the water. His Dad, Reese, has asked that this news be posted and has asked that donations be made in his memory to the Fair Haven Net Pen Project instead of flowers. For those who wish to do so; donations (checks need to be made out to: Fair Haven Net Pen Project) can be sent to: Fair Haven Net Pen Project C/O Werner Stenger 14513 Lake Street Sterling NY 13156 Our Prayers go out to the family. Anyone who met Kenny knows that he always left those around him with a smile on their face. He will be remembered as a great person, fisherman, family guy, and person who was always there helping out with whatever needed to get done. One of those guys who truly made a difference in the lives of those around him.

    Salmon are Coming to Fair Haven Tomorrow

    They are penned up for another 3 weeks. A handful got out before we figured out that the gate was wedged open by a half an inch by a knot in a rope before we fixed it. They look great!!!
  5. Just a reminder that the salmon will be arriving tomorrow at 11:00AM ish. They do not anticipate being there too early and will likely be there right at 11. With that said; anyone who can get there around 10:30AM in the event that they are early would be great. They may in fact be a little late (they are loading other trucks that will be heading further west before they load our truck). Thanks again to Bayside and Turtle Cove for their continued support.
  6. June 23rd - Larry is securing our veterans. More information to come. It should be the usual routine except a change to the parade and the addition of a meet and greet / thank you opportunity at the pavilion in the village.
  7. Pen update. The pens are all in good shape and ready to be splashed. Thank you to everyone who made it. We had about a dozen people on deck and it made things go quickly. The tarps under the pens made a huge difference this season with very few weeds around. Despite the annual cold temps (could be 70 the day before or after, but never on our pen work day it seems) the holes were zip tied (half of them broke despite being rated for -40 degrees). Also, our professional welder and jack of all trades with some competent help was able to fix a broken axle and replace a couple of broken tires in quick fashion. We had our annual Spring meeting immediately following and discussed the pen projects themselves, hatchery news, and the Wounded Warrior Weekend in June. The fish are scheduled to arrive on Thursday the 12th at 11AM but they usually come a bit earlier. As soon as there is any updates they will be posted - otherwise see those who can make it there.
  8. We will be having our net pen workday on April 7th at 8:30AM. We need to give them a once over to zip tie any holes and get them out of the mud and hopefully in front of the docks that they will be set by. From years past this should take roughly an hour and a half. We will be getting around 47,500 kings and 6,000 steelhead. We may have an opportunity to fix one of the axles as well. Bring gloves, hand warmers, boots, and wire cutters for the zip ties. The fish should arrive on the morning of the 12th (presently scheduled for 11:00AM but they usually come a bit earlier) as long as the water temperature is close enough to the hatchery temperature. A more current update will be made next week. The net pens are located on the north lot of Bayside, behind the large blue storage yard. Thanks and see those who can make it there.

  9. Morgan has been getting her fly, meat, and laker inventory ready.
  10. Meeting at the Salmon River Fish Hatchery This Wednesday at 7:00PM an open to the public (public encouraged to attend) meeting will be held at the hatchery with DEC biologists and hatchery personnel. Topics usually covered include the egg take, condition of the fish, comparisons to last and former years, hatchery goals and needs, research data, raw information / observations, and a question and answer session.
  11. Great people. They also help out with the pen project and Fair Havens wounded Veterans weekend. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. Awesome Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Little Sodus Inn launch and Turtle Cove Launch. If there is a south wind I would strongly recommend LSI launch as it is much easier with the dock. North wind makes both tough. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. The Wounded Warrior Weekend was a huge success thanks to all who were involved in making it happen and especially to the honored guests who sacrificed so much so that their fellow countrymen can live better and free lives. Despite rough water the boats were able to get out and there was enough fish caught that ever soldier was able to go home with as much fish as they wanted. Thank you to the captains for toughing it out on a day that many would have turned around at the chute. Also, a big thank you to the cooks who drove from NJ to make sure the pig roast went off without a hitch, to the Fair Haven American Legion for hosting the Friday night dinner and to Larry Knoll for his passion he brought to the event, to Cindy Borozny who took care of so many things that people would never think needed doing, to all who fund raised and donated to the cause, to Turtle Cove for their cabin donations and use of their restaurant at 4:30AM - 5:30AM, to Bayside Marina for the use of their cleaning station and the so much appreciated letter from the family left at the cleaning table, to Ken Smith and the Ogdensburg FD for their donations, to those who took time out of their day to honor the soldiers as they were escorted through Fair Haven, Joe Grondin for his work as our photographer, all of the local businesses throughout Fair Haven who donated so much to make sure these men and women had a great time, the Fair Haven FD for making sure the guys had the proper escort, to the police officer who not only escorted the men and women through town but also took time to eat with them at the Legion as a friend, organizations such as ELOSTA (Eastern Lake Ontario Salmon and Trout Association) for thier donations, as well as so many others who did things that we are not even aware of. A big thank you as well to those who supported this in the past so that it could become the event that it has. There were 22 soldiers who were able to attend and 11 boats used in the event. The communication on the water was beyond exceptional to help home in on the fish and what they were interested in. The largest salmon weighed in that day was just shy of 24lbs caught on Lumpy Lunkers with several in the upper teens brought in from several of the boats. The largest trout was a 6 1/2lb Brown taken on Time Flies. The biggest wave was a legit 6+ footer in 30+ mph gusts. *****Time Flies placed in the Atomik Challenge and did so while honoring two young men as their guests on the rods ***** Rich Peaslee made his comeback from a back injury in the rough water in a big way with 5 respectable salmon being brought back tot he dock****Every soldier who went out had a great time and were shown the deserved honor they are due - some from as far back as the Korean War**** We are starting to plan for next year already. There was a lot of feedback that will be used to try to make next year as successful. Below is a picture of one of the fish racks full with the other being loaded and a picture of the soldiers and some of the folks who were able to make the dinner Friday night. Thank you again.

  15. Praying that we get them with the Vets tomorrow. At least the lake is looking fishable in the morning. Great going Mike.
