Lake Ontario - Freshwater Fishing Report
Today is Tuesday September 19, 2017.
Well it looks like we are in for another long stretch of pleasant summerlike weather conditions.
This should slow down the migration of trout and salmon towards their spawning grounds just a bit.
Early morning and late evening fishing from the pier heads have been fairly productive as has been trolling the "wall" at those times.
There are still a good number of fish and bait in the 70 to 200 feet of water range for those who still have boats in the water.
This past weekend I was at a function at the Archers Club and conditions never looked better.
There is a good water flow throughout the entire area which should make for some fantastic fishing this fall.
They also have made some great improvements to the facilities in the enlarged kitchen area.
Mark on your calendar October 18th,19th and 20th for the St. Mary's Archers Club Catch and Release Fly Fishing Derby.
This great event features 3 days of great fishing, fantastic food and some wonderful prizes, truly an event not to be missed.
With the warm up, fishing in the lower stretches of the "Oak", Lake Alice and the Erie Canal has slowed a bit except for the small mouth bass fishing.
That will all change once some cooler temperatures return to our area.
Initial reports from the DEC creel census folks look like this has been one of the highest catch rates for trout and salmon they have ever seen proving once again that Lake Ontario and its tributaries are alive and very healthy, even with the little extra water Mother Nature has given us.
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.
