We offer at Hedley Boat Co., Inc.
Your most successful fishing trip will begin at the Hedley Boat Co., home of the Fishing Rod, in Olcott, New York. We are situated at the mouth of Eighteen Mile Creek where most of the salmon are stocked in Niagara County. At our marina we have fisherman’s rooms on the harbor with docks for your own boat adjacent to our charter fleet of owner-operated boats. If down rigger trolling is your game, we can arrange half or full day charters with one of the captains. Parties of six are allowed, but we recommend four as a comfortable number.
Our “Hillton” over looks the charter fleet, will accommodate nine people, and is only 50 feet from Main Street. Rates for rooms are $20.00 per night per person.
Olcott provides entertainment for the whole family. Main Street boasts three restaurants – skating rink – bowling alley – a beautiful county park with beaches – baseball diamonds - tennis and basketball courts – picnic and playgrounds and even a small shopping center. The town marina offers launching ramp facilities, and ample parking. There are a number of tackle shops in town where you can purchase a fishing license.
As you can see, we have much to offer the whole family. Please make reservations early.
