Lake Ontario - Freshwater Fishing Report

Today is Tuesday September 26, 2017.
Where has these summerlike temperatures been all summer?
Trout and salmon are moving back out into the lake from their near-shore haunts and lake fishing is fantastic right now.
Fishing in the 50 to 200 feet of water range is producing some great catches of a mixed bag of fish.
When this warm-up started a few salmon scooted to the dam on Oak Orchard but by far the majority went back to the lake.
This has been like a bonus season for those who still have their boats in the water and this is after an already bonus season.
I guess the tributary fishermen will have to be patient just a little while longer, but not too much longer.
The weather forecast calls for a drastic cool down to more seasonal temperatures by the end of this week which should bring these confused fish back to shore to the delight of tributary fishermen young and old.
Don't forget to register for the St. Mary's Archers Club Catch and Release Fly Fishing Derby which will take place October 18th, 19th and 20th this year.
Great food, fantastic fishing and the chance to meet people from all over the states await you.
The "Oak" is producing a fair number of largemouth bass, pike, and perch.
On Lake Alice, these warmer temperatures have moved the fish to deeper waters for now but that may be very short lived with the cool down close at hand.
The Erie Canal is scheduled to close on October 11th this year but it is my understanding that dewatering will not begin immediately.
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.
