Lake Ontario - Freshwater Fishing Report

Today is Wednesday August 9, 2017.
I'm not sure that I would like the "dog Days of summer" but a little less rain and some warmer days would be nice.
It's a good thing that the fish don't know how much rain we are getting, and have been getting all summer.
With that being said, fishing has been very good to excellent when you can get out on Lake Ontario.
There have been a few days when the lake kicked up to the point where it went past uncomfortable to be out there but then that seems to happen every year.
Off shore fishing has been as good as it gets with a good mixture of both salmon and steelhead anywhere from the 28 to 31 lines east, west and straight out front.
Most fish are being taken in the top 100 feet of water and are being caught by a multitude of bait patterns.
Trolling speeds seem to dictate what types of bait are going to be more productive, but then isn't that always the case.
I haven't had any reports from the inside waters but I would guess that if you worked at it, there are fish to be had there.
The Orleans County Rotary Derby got off to a slow start due to the weather but is now in full swing with some great entries already on the leader board.
This derby runs through August 20th this year so there is still plenty of time to enter and claim your share of the prize money.
On Lake Alice, the bass fishermen are having a great time as are the Bluegill fishermen that are fishing around the Waterport Bridge area.
The Erie Canal is still producing some nice Channel cats especially around the wide water area.
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.
