Lake Ontario - Freshwater Fishing Report

Today is Wednesday December 7, 2016.
Colder weather is finally upon us but not cold enough to start producing solid water.
Wet snow and rain is in the forecast for the rest of this week and into the weekend.
Could it be that winter has found its way back home again?
Fishing pressure is somewhat lower than normal but there are still good fishing conditions.
Higher water flows are being seen on all of the tributaries within Orleans County which means that the once concentrations of both Brown trout and Steelhead have spread out over a much larger area.
These conditions should continue until water flow drops back to more seasonal conditions when the Erie Canal completes its de-watering schedule.
Right now Lake Ontario is the only one of the Great Lakes that is below the long term December average, all of the rest are above average.
Lake Alice has become quiet for the time being until that Ice forms and then action should return.
On the lower stretches of the "Oak" Perch fishing has also dropped off for the time being but should pick up again shortly.
The time has come for all tributary fishermen to review their winter safety practices and keep them at the forefront of their minds.
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.
