Niagara, Tuscarora, or Olcott will do you fine. just listen to the fishing reports and pick your launch from there. I have never used the Tuscarora launch. I understand that you want to make sure you stay in the channel there. Lots of rocks outside the channel. 

I will be in the area on Memorial day weekend from Thursday to Sunday.

  Olcott is a great launch, Niagara  can be tricky with the river current & Tuscaroora is good but as mentioned stay within the channel.   Good luck.

The last time I launched at Fort Niagara, in October, it was very difficult. Both ramps need work, as they do not extend into the river far enough. Too shallow. Major problem. I hope they worked on them, but I have no idea. I think it is the closest for fishing the Niagara Bar, and lower Niagara River, which is a shame. My boat is only a 19 foot deep V. Everyone was having problems.

    • Flasher Fly - Cayuga advice

      Hey all - plan to hit Cayuga next week sometime - just started trolling with dipsys - hooked into 4 on Canadaguia today - finally broke our skunk! Anyhow, I have spoons already - as I said new to trolling - flasher / flies - any suggestions on what to bring to Cayuga? Salmon would be fun or lakers, or really anything - would be running them behind dipsys. Something I could pick up at field and stream would be great - I don't know all the trolling lingo - so links or pics would be great

    • Cayuga color advice

      Hey guys, I know this topic has been covered but I have to ask. I was fishing this morning early. I wasnt planning on keeping anything but I had a 5 pound laker tangle with my downrigger cable at the surface. He wasnt going to make it, so I kept him. This was up my sheldrake. The lake is still a greenish color, but I got him right on bottom in 80ft of water. Do you think he's safe to eat? I dont want to waste it. I was going to freeze it first, then either smoke it, or grill it.   What

I told him I thought it was a massive and positive improvement and that i had heard many of my friends say the same that had recently used it.. He then queried me about any

    • Thanks for the advice on Cayuga

      Last month I was asking for advice on where to put in a kayak on Cayuga for lake trout fishing. Because of the replies I ended up putting in at Sheldrake. Great advice. I found lakers in no time. A little bit of trial and error I was able to tie into 4 fish of which I brought two home for the smoker. Funny thing is I went yesterday to Canandaigua lake to get a few perch for supper. The lake was so still that I went out into the deep and tied into another 4 Lakers and brought two home for the smo
