Captain's LogWhen I was born, my father was in the marina business, which meant working 7 days a week during the summer.  So when my mother was sick & tired of me and it was my fathers turn to watch me, it usually meant going to work with him. Since he was very busy, I frequently found myself tied to the end of a dock and left with a fishing pole & some bait. Although I realize many liberals and slick lawyers would label this as child abuse nowadays, I can't say I minded! Ever since, my love for fishing and the outdoors has remained strong.
    I will use this page to bring you fishing reports, update you on upcoming events, and inform you on issues important to our fishery. Also watch for pictures & reports on our latest fishing trips!
    I will apologize to everyone in advance, when we get to busy times in our fishing schedule, I know the web site won't be as up to date as we would all like.

May 1, 2002
Other than a few days with very high water, the steelhead fishing has been & continues to be terrific!!! The first week in May will probably be the last really good week, as we are starting to see more & more male steelhead which usually drop out of the river last. 

We had a great day today in the middle of the river using egg sacs & spinning outfits.  The fish are becoming more rested after spawning and are starting to fight extremely hard. 
We've had to chase many down with the driftboat before they spool us!!! The lake fishing is just starting to get hot, & the brown trout are very good size with the average being 5 pounds but with many in the 8 to 14 pound range. 

There are again some spring kings around, making for very exciting fishing. We still have dates open for the lake, so call today. Don't miss out on a fun day on this great lake, with fabulous fishing!!!!!

Cormorant's may be on the run!     New York congressmen John McHugh will testify on cormorant overpopulation before the House Resources Subcommittee on Fisheries Conservation.
    McHugh has introduced a bill that would establish a cormorant hunting season to control the bird that is "wreaking havoc all across this nation" he said.
     All I can tell you from personal observations is that for a number of years the cormorant population seemed to grow & grow, with a large number taking up residence on the Oswego harbor breakwalls on a daily basis. Last year after a few took the law into their own hands and shot a small percentage of the birds, there was a noticable difference in cormorant sightings. Not only was their population down slightly, but they obviously no longer felt comfortable flying & feeding to close to humans. This year with no one bothering them, they have been back with a vengeance. Many times this spring we were trolling within 50 yards of huge flocks of the birds!
    Like everything in nature cormorants serve a purpose and should not be eliminated. However their numbers should not be allowed to get out of control either.
