Lake Ontario - Freshwater Fishing Report

Today is Wednesday October 26, 2016.
The rain and wind of the past week didn't stop the 57 entrants in the Archer's Club Catch and Release derby from enjoying a great time, great food, great friendships and some fantastic fishing.
The surprise was the number of Atlantic salmon that were caught during the event including a 37" beauty.
It seems like each year of this event just keeps getting better and better.
The weather forecast for the next week is for cooler temperatures and the chance of precipitation several of the days including rain and a chance of some snow tonight.
Flows on all of the tributaries within Orleans County are dropping back from the rains we had.
That increased flow did manage to create movement in the fish to more sections making more fishable waters.
Right now there is a good mixture of fish in the system of all the cold water species, except Lake trout of course, and a good number of salmon are at the Waterport Dam.
On Lake Alice the numbers of Bluegill being caught continues to drop off but Bass are still active and now Walleye are being caught.
On the lower stretches of the "Oak" some perch are being taken but reports have a lot of smaller ones in the mix, good news for upcoming years.
As the colder weather approaches be mindful of the possible icing conditions along our shorelines making for slippery conditions.
Just a reminder that the Erie Canal System will close on November 20th this year and then the dewatering process should start shortly after that.
From Point Breeze on Lake Ontario, The World Fishing Network's Ultimate Fishing Town USA and the rest of Orleans County, let's make everyday a great fishing day right here in Orleans County.
