Bill Hilts Jr. provides the latest news from Lake Ontario and other nearby bodies of water in this edition of the Fishing Beat from The Buffalo News.

He states that, “It’s hard to believe that September is upon us and that fishing activities will be undergoing a metamorphosis of sorts. Fishing contests are starting to wane. The NYS Summer Derby ends on Aug. 31 and the Fall Lake Ontario Counties (LOC) Derby wraps things up on Labor Day. Salmon and trout fishing will soon be transitioning from lake to river and stream. Lake Erie perch action will start to pick up and muskellunge activity will increase in the Niagara and Buffalo Harbor as the waters start to cool. A cool rain will probably trigger the first runs of trout into the Lake Erie tributaries. Could it be this week?”
