Re: Advice on where to Fish and stay??
Oak Orchard, there is no better river for salmon and trout fishing from shore. If you want Lake Ontario access for a boat, also Oak Orchard at Point Breeze, Kent NY.
The trout are starting, saw a few taken from the piers last night. The salmon are coming, give it a week, maybe two. One guy hooked into one last night, but it got away. Pre-dawn and just after sunset seem to be the best times for shore fishing.
You can try up at the Oak Orchard dam below Lake Alice, that's where all the out-of-towners (Pennsyltuckians) go at the height of the season. Locals go there to watch the shoulder to shoulder "combat" fishing. It is very entertaining to watch people fight over fish and to watch them claim they were not snagging, snatching, or whatever you want to call the term for illegally taking fish.
