POINT BREEZE – The fishing community at Point Breeze spent two months reeling in a prized catch: The title of “Ultimate Fishing Town.”

Today the community will celebrate the award at 11 a.m. by the lighthouse. Representatives from the World Fishing Network will join locals during a presentation at the Point.

The Orleans County fishing community topped 700 others in on-line votes to win the title that comes with $25,000 to spend on promoting the fishery.

Point Breeze is already well known for brown trout, salmon, steelhead and cohoes. A committee will discuss how to spend the prize money, to entice more anglers to fish at the Oak Orchard River, Lake Ontario and other tributaries.
