Lake Ontario - Freshwater Fishing Report
Today is Wednesday June 21, 2017.
Occasional rain and thunder storms are in the forecast into next week along with more seasonal temperatures.
On Lake Ontario the king of the lake, Chinook salmon, have made their presence known in a big way.
Fishing in the 100 feet of water range has been very productive all along the shoreline of Orleans County.
Most fish are being taken in the lower portions of the water column, from 60 feet down and with a mixture of lure combinations but cut bait seems to be the most productive.
Some Lake trout and steelhead are also being caught but not in the numbers of the kings.
Near the mouth of the "Oak" Perch and bass fishing is good to very good.
Lake Alice is producing some decent numbers of both Large and Smallmouth bass along with a combination of pan fish.
I haven't had a good report from the Erie Canal fishermen as of yet.
Returning again this year is the Drew's Crew, Fishing for a cure for Juvenile Diabetes.
The derby will take place on July 15th this year and will follow the best 3 fish format that is so popular.
The entry fee is $50.00 cash with half going to the prize structure and half to Juvenile Diabetes research.
This year you will be able to fish out of either Point Breeze or Bald Eagle Marina but the weigh-in will take place at Ernst's Lake Breeze Marina.
You must be entered by 7 AM on the 15th and the weigh-In closes at 3PM so please don't be late.
Why join us for a fun day of fishing while supporting this great cause.
From Point Breeze on Lake Ontario, the World Fishing Network's Ultimate Fishing
