Olcott 5/18

We had 5 boats from Maine here this week starting Sunday. Fishing has been very slow for all the boats. Usually just a couple fish each boat/day.  Today all boats were out and only 1 small king was caught.  Yesterday we had our best day with 8 fish in my 

boat. 2 steelhead, 2 browns, and 4 lakers.  Lots of bait in the 50 to 60 fow.  The steelies were caught on 4 color lead core and purple gators and sodus buckeye.  The couple kings were caught on purple spoons and a green up spoon off the dypsy.  1 king was off the 250 copper and a green uv spoon.     The west wind has warmed the water up a lot since Sunday and the bait does seem to be setting up good. Highlight was a 15.5 lb brown caught by Fish Hunter in 8.5 fow on a mooselook spoon. Slowest spring fishing I can remember in over 30 yrs.

That steelhead doesn't look all so healthy!
