Orleans County Fishing Report

Today is Tuesday August 29, 2017.

There is still time to enter the Fall LOC Derby and collect some of the great cash prizes that are up for grabs.

The derby ends on Monday September 4th at 1 PM with the awards ceremony taking place at Captain Jack’s in Sodus Point starting around 3PM.

Hope to see your name on the leader board.

Fishing on Lake Ontario off the shores of Orleans County has been interesting to say the least.

Fish are on the move from close to shore and then off shore depending on the winds of the day.

Lure selection seems to be anybody’s guess but it seems that spoons in the green patterns and flashers in the white patterns are most often mentioned.

With the cooler temperatures of the past few days, salmon are inching closer to shore and preparing for their spawning runs but warmer temperatures could slow that down a bit.

The Greater Niagara Fish Odyssey wrapped up this past Sunday with some great catches posted on the leader board.

What really makes this event so fantastic is the attention payed to the young ladies and gentlemen that participate in this event.

A big “Thank You” to all of the parents that take the time to take these future leaders into the great outdoors and help them experience some of nature at its best.

Perch fishing on the lower stretches of the “Oak” should start picking up very soon as the water temperature of the “Oak” gets to more favorable levels.

On Lake Alice, bass fishing is still good to very good on the upper reaches and Bluegill are still being caught around the Waterport Bridge area.

The Erie Canal is still a good source for all of the warm water species and a great place to enjoy a sunny afternoon with the family.
