A new event will be taking place this weekend to help kick off the Lake Ontario fishing season in Olcott. The Olcott Ultimate Fishing Expo will be held on May 6 at the Olcott Gazebo on Main Street from noon to 5 p.m. This is a free event for fishing enthusiasts. There will be feature lectures and presentations, a fisherman’s swap meet, a vendor fair, the Niagara River Anglers Association will have its fishing pond on hand for the kids, and the Niagara County Federation of Conservation Clubs will be manning its shooting trailer.
The event is being sponsored by the Olcott Beach Community Association with some help from the Newfane/Olcott Tourism Board. For more information contact Kristin Teeter at 807-2873. Bring the family.
