Orleans County Fishing Report 7/9/24

Orleans County Tourism
July 9, 2024
Lake Ontario - Freshwater Fishing Report

Wow! There is some pretty good trolling action in the Orleans County waters at the Oak. By most all accounts both Rec anglers and Charters are into good numbers of fish and real nice quality Kings. Check out Scott and Paige's big King which is good enough for 17th place right now in the summer LOC. The weather has been mostly cooperative and finally the number of anglers out on the water is reflective of the quality fishing. Even with a few more anglers out like over the previous holiday weekend there seems to be lots of hookups all around. With strong numbers of willing biters and seemingly lots of bait to hold the fish in mid depth waters the fishing may be as good as it can get! Summer warm weather is forecast ahead with always the chance for passing storms. Remnant precipitation from the hurricane Beryl is expected to hit mid week with the chance for significant precipitation. Monitor local and marine forecasts for safe operation.

Cpt. Lou Borelli says "fishing continues to be real good, fish are being caught anywhere from 80 - 300 fow. A good mix of Kings and steelhead are around. Spoons, meat, flies are all getting it done. Run your go-to lures and most likely you're gonna get bit."

Cpt. John Oravec has been limiting out on nice Kings and the occasional hefty Coho or steelhead. He too is excited to see all the trollers finally out after previous lackluster fishing pressure. "The fish seem to be going for flasher/fly rigs especially on the wire dipsey. A deep rigger has been real good. A stud fly behind a chartreuse and green nuclear 8 inch paddle has been my best."

Another local veteran rec angler says "it's a 90% spoon bite for me. Normally it's more a flasher/fly or meat bite this time of year but the spoons keep producing. There's a ton of bait, big pods suspended and in 50 - 70 fow the bottom is loaded. Brown trout in that zone should be getting fat. I've been having some of my best action out of preferred temp and in the warmer water."

Target Species:

Salmon, Lake Trout, Brown Trout
