Lake Ontario - Freshwater Fishing Report

Looks like we are finally getting our warm-up! Forecast thru this week is for high temps in the 40's or near 50F. Precipitation is expected today thru tonight and a chance again Thursday. For now, flows in the Oak have dropped back some to between moderate and medium and still mostly clear. Reports today are of further fluctuations thanks to hydro-power operations. With some precipitation thru this mid-week and snow melt south of here, look for soon-to-be rising flows in the Oak with hopefully a return to stained flows.

There's a return to lighter angling pressure again after the past weekend with most guys into some hook-ups on spawning or staged or post spawn fish. With any warm-up in water temps, look for more earnest spawning action of the staged fish and some fresh fish migrations too. The other area smaller tributaries could benefit from a rise in flow with some off-color water. Warming water temps there could bring on some more fresh fish migrations and chance for some lake run browns. Casters have reported some hook-ups on hard fighting browns at Point Breeze. Good chance for hook-ups within casting range with small boat trollers into all the fish they want in as close as only 6′ of water.
