Rochester Air show and Fishing

Recommended Posts

Just so you Rochester fishermen are aware,The coast guard will not allow any boat traffic in or out of the Port during the air show . May 30th and 31st. You could probably go out in the morning, but they will close the port at 0800 for the rest of the day. NOT GOOD! As I get more details I will post them up

Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong (probably am) but that looks like about 150 Yds east of summerville and only runs 2/3 the way to Russell, from the shore out to about 22 FOW.

Maybe I need new reading glasses. :question:

p.s. where they going to put 100k people?

You will not have any problems at any other port that weekend.

Braddock Bay Marina is running a special for any displaced captains that weekend.


we'll only charge you half the cost of replacing your prop and lower unit after you run aground coming in the channel.

Nothing like good planning from the County Exec. way to go Maggie B.

Thanks for clarifying that for me guys......Still sucks. If its not the blow boaters causing trouble, its the freakin fast ferry or the air show.

Rochester is by far the most underrated port in the lake. It too bad it wasn't a little more sportsmen friendly.
