Lake Ontario - Freshwater Fishing Report
Today is Monday October 22, 2012.
There are Chinooks, Browns and Steelhead/Rainbow trout in all of the tributaries within Orleans County that feed Lake Ontario.
The problem still remains low water levels which makes fishing on Johnson and Marsh Creeks very difficult, and forces the majority of fishermen to Oak Orchard River.
The "Oak" is the hotspot in Orleans County all the way from the piers to the Waterport Dam.
At the piers fishermen are doing well casting spoons and getting Chinooks, Browns and Rainbow/Steelhead trout.
As you go South on the "Oak" all of those species are being taken using a broad variety of methods.
With the "Oak" being so crowded it becomes even more important to be respectful of your fellow fishermen and the area.
Please give way to those who are fighting a fish and also please take out any trash that you might create while enjoying the great fishery that is available.
Perch fishing on the "Oak" is starting to pick up but mainly for those who are drifting down through in small boats.
On Lake Alice the Bluegill/Crappie fishing remains constant, mainly in the late evening and early morning around the Waterport Bridge area.
Speaking of the Waterport Bridge area, don't forget the Walleye fishing in the evening.
One fisherman caught a 33 inch walleye while fishing for Bluegill/Crappie, so the Walleye are there.
Let's make everyday a great fishing day, right here in Orleans County.
Fantastic year round fishing on Lake Ontario and the tribs of Orleans County, New York for Chinook, Coho and Atlantic salmon, Lake, Brown and Steelhead trout, Northern pike, Large and Smallmouth bass, Carp and various other Panfish.
