To all the fishermen and women out there, this one is for you.

A wing town, even a hot dog town, but WNY is also be considered a fishing town. We wear many hats, we know.
Upstate NY recently had its waterways honored with the ranking of the decade (literally) – four waterways in Upstate NY were ranked among “25 bass fishing spots of the decade”. This story was highlighted on the New York Upstate website, which detailed exactly why Upstate NY hit this list, and it seems our waters are ideal for fishing spots for bass both large and small.

In their July/August issue of the magazine, these Upstate waterways that ranked among the top 25 in the nation:

  • Lake Erie
  • Lake Champlain
  • St. Lawrence River
  • Oneida Lake


Here’s what Bassmaster Magazine had to say about Lake Erie, which ranked third:

Lake Erie (New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan) “Although the lion’s share of the tournament data comes out of the Buffalo, N.Y. area, this Great Lake, world-class smallmouth fishery can be found anywhere along its shoreline westward to Trenton, Michigan.”

Another accomplishment to add to WNY’s rankings and yet another summer activity to add to our list.
