Orleans County Fishing Report 5/23/23

Orleans County Tourism
May 24, 2023
Lake Ontario - Freshwater Fishing Report

This fourth week of May still means relatively light fishing pressure here at the Oak Orchard and Point Breeze. Some charter operations have yet to move back from their western pursuits and on any given day you may find just a few rec guys. Therein lies some of the attraction for Oak Orchard action - the less harried waters. Look for more fishing pressure to return by about the Memorial Day holiday weekend and for sure by the Oak Orchard Open tourney time June 9 - 11, 2023. For now get out there and find some unpressured fish!

Cpt. Andy Krull of Gone Coastal Sportfishing is doing just that today, Tue May 23, 2023. He's just west of port trying to put things together after a medium E blow yesterday. Today may be the day because the forecast is for some N winds tomorrow with a drop down cold front. He's seeing good number of marks on the fish finder and thinks that things could start to set up nicely for consistent action. He's working around 110 - 130 fow water and seeing those tell tale marks all the way from 45 ft to 100 ft down. A few more boats around him means the fleet has found a concentration of fish.

Some other new Lake anglers fishing with Tightlines Charters Cpt. John Oravec just recently got into mixed bag action for Kings and lakers. That's the name of the game for spring time action, mixed catches of Kings and cohos and lakers and browns. Although the browns have become scarce off the beach they are probably lurking close by on the ledge. But these regular tributary anglers have now added a new dimension to their fish catching out in the open Lake. Good to see some cross over anglers making it an all year pursuit! Cpt Oravec found action to the east of port in 50 - 100 fow down 30 - 50 ft. Bright fluorescent spoons were the ticket for a #14 Atlantic too.

Target Species:

Salmon, Lake Trout, Brown Trout
