Lake Ontario - Freshwater Fishing Report
Today is Wednesday August 2, 2017.
First, I'd like to congratulate the winners of the Summer LOC Derby, especially those that were caught out of Orleans County.
Out of our county we had the First Place in the salmon division was a 31.1-pound salmon caught by Kristin Wilson.
Victor Rowcliffe had the 4th place salmon weighing 29.05 pounds
In the Lake Trout Division, the 4th place fish weighed 21.1 pounds and was caught by James Irene and the 7th place fish was 20.04 pounds caught by Michael Wichtowski.
In the Rainbow/Steelhead Division Darwin Snow caught the 6th place fish which weighed 12.15 pounds, 10th place was Tiffany Keicher's 11.15-pound fish, 13th place went to Laura Brown with a 11.11-pound fish and the 17th place fish weighed 11.08 pounds and was caught by Patrick Pullinzi.
All in all, not a bad showing for the great fishing in the waters of Lake Ontario off Orleans County.
Fishing on Lake Ontario seems to have moved off shore and for right and now seems to be taking place around the 30 line and beyond.
Good catches of both salmon and steelhead are being reported using a mixture of both spoons and flasher/fly combinations in a multitude of color patterns.
On the Erie Canal around the wide water area some great catfish catches are being taken along with many other species.
Lake Alice still has some great bass fishing in the upper stretches where the boat traffic is much lighter and the lower stretches of the "Oak" are still producing Northern Pike and bass.
The weather for the rest of this week and into next week contains the possibility of some pop up showers and thunderstorms so keep a lookout for them.
