Fishing Steelhead in Johnson Creek

Johnson Creek in the village of Lyndonville is a place that an angler can count on – even on tough days. The relatively wide rocky bottomed water course has plenty of fish holding structure and normally decent water levels throughout the fall spring fishing seasons.

Most importantly, Johnson Creek is filled with spawning fish from the late fall to early spring. There are fishable access points along the waterway from the dam at Lyndonville all of the way back to Lakeside Park where the creek empties into Lake Ontario. (read more...)

Leonard Oakes Estate Winery
The apple growing tradition of the Oakes family and LynOaken Farms dates back to 1919 when our grandfather purchased land in rural Orleans County in Western New York State to grow the best apples possible. Growing up, our parents and grandparents taught us to learn from the past to build on our future. This principle guides us in every aspect of our orchard operations and has helped us continue to grow apples recognized as world-class in quality.
