More signs of spring in Orleans County as Lake Breeze Marina prepared more than 100,000 king salmon to be released into Lake Ontario.

In an effort to improve end of the season fishing, charter boat captains met on Wednesday to put 106,000 king salmon into pens to later be released into Lake Ontario.

"We are working in conjunction with the DEC to promote imprinting of our salmon into the Oak Orchard River," said Bob Songin, Charter Captain. "By doing that, we are stocking the fish in holding pens and we keep them in the river for three-to four weeks, taking care of them feeding them five times a day. Once they have imprinted, we take them out to the lake."

The marina has been doing this for 15 years. Captain Songin says this is important because after imprinting the fish will return to the river in the fall to spawn, improving fishing season. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
