38th Annual Greater Niagara Fish Odyssey Derby Set for August 17-25
The Greater Niagara Fish Odyssey Derby – the derby formally known as the “Fall Classic” – will be holding its 38th Annual contest August 16-24, 2014. In what started out as the Niagara County Fishing Derby, this competition is now opened to three counties (Niagara, Erie and Orleans) in an attempt to encourage more involvement in this family-oriented event. With a big focus on the Junior Division, this move will give the kids more opportunity to wet a line because of the fact that they are out of school.
Second, the Lake Ontario Trout and Salmon Association (LOTSA) is back again with a special $500 cash prize for the largest salmon caught by a LOTSA member while competing in the derby. In addition to that, the witness (which also has to be a LOTSA member) will also receive a check for $200.p> When you register for the Fish Odyssey, toss in another $10 for your LOTSA membership and you’ll be considered registered in that fine organization. You can also register online at www.lotsa.org.
Species categories for the adults include salmon, smallmouth bass, walleye, carp, lake trout and brown/rainbow trout. For the kids 15 years and under, categories will be salmon, trout, bass, walleye, carp and panfish.
Entry fee will stay the same at $20 for the adults; free for the kids. A one day pass will also be available for $10. It doesn’t get any easier than that. Kids can register online at www.fishodyssey.net. The adults can, too!

The Charlie Challenge for the kids
will live on it's in own new style.
From WGRZ - NIAGARA FALLS, NY - Charlie the Chimp, 28, died Monday, November 4, 2013 at his home in the Primate Sanctuary of Niagara Falls, where he had lived since 1985.
Husband-and-wife caretakers Carmen and Christie Presti said they recognized early on that Charlie possessed an extraordinary intellect. They taught him American Sign Language and martial arts, earning him the stage name "Charlie the Karate Chimp."
In addition to entertaining visitors to the Primate Sanctuary, Charlie appeared in the film Ghost Rider and the television shows Animal Planet and America's Funniest People. Charlie was featured in a 2009 National Geographic documentary about the challenges of raising and caring for adult chimpanzees.
Sadly, Charlie did not live to see the new Primate Sanctuary that the Prestis are building in the Town of Wilson
