Orleans County Fishing Report 8/1/23

Orleans County Tourism
August 4, 2023
Lake Ontario - Freshwater Fishing Report

The Kings are getting bigger! Some good fish are being caught most everyday here in the Orleans County waters off Point Breeze. Good action continues and there seems to be more mature fish now in the mix. Trollers are still working inshore waters and marking good concentrations of bait so as long as temps hold those hungry Kings are lurking nearby! More charters and recs are heading farther offshore too like to the 28 line and there's stable action there most days. A few more steelhead are also in the mix, although still not big numbers. Could be most guys are content enough with all the King action. Back inshore there's the brown trout action too and Atlantics for good measure! High 20's and 30 pound Kings now could mean some real heavyweights by end of August or beginning September for staging sharks!

More good weather days then not means guys have been getting out there. Some rains and winds this past beginning of weekend but everyone got out right after that and got right back into the fish. A good amount of water from precipitation lately has passed through the tribs and into the Lake for a nice water condition reset. All that Oak Orchard scent going into the Lake will hopefully keep "our" fish a - lurking and homing in for Fall staging runs.

Capt. John Oravec of Tight Lines Charters says "fishing is centering around 2 King salmon hotspots off the Orleans County coast of Lake Ontario. Large areas of baitfish east of the pierheads are in 50 - 150 fow attracting Kings, brown trout and frequent Atlantic salmon. The preferred temp has been yo-yoing between 40 - 80 ft down. Many charter and rec boats are finding scattered Kings, cohos, steelhead trolling north/south in 180 - 350 fow. Spoons and flasher/fly rigs are hitting good fish like a 17 lb brown, 32 in whopper Atlantic and 41 in mature King. This week's less stormy weather and the high flows from recent rains bode well for attracting mature Kings to the traditional staging areas. Fish On!"

Target Species:

Salmon, Lake Trout, Brown Trout
