Lake Ontario - Freshwater Fishing Report

Today is Tuesday October 3, 2017.
With temperatures warming back up again the migration of fish up our tributaries has slowed just a bit.
There are a good number of salmon at the dam and at the Archers Club but not as good as it is likely to get.
Reports have brown trout, steelhead/rainbow trout and even Atlantic salmon being caught in the deeper holes around the Archers Club area.
However late last week a 13-pound brown trout was caught at the Archers Club. Could this be the sign of things to come?
There are fish being taken at the jetties and from small boats right along the shoreline but just in the early morning and late evening time periods.
The "Oak" is still producing perch, bass and an occasional pike.
The Erie Canal still has good water flow and good fishing but will close to traffic on October 11th this year.
The good news is that dewatering will not take place until either late October or early November.
Then it will be a partial dewatering followed by a partial refilling to check the work being done.
The Archers Club Catch and Release Fly Fishing Derby will be held on October 18th, 19th and 20th this year which is always a great event.
The water flow at the Archers Club is the very best that I've seen in many years which should lead to some of the very best fishing seen in a long time.
And yet from Lake Ontario they are still doing well on trout and salmon in the 100 to150 feet of water range.
It just keeps getting better and better.
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.
