Today is Tuesday, September 5, 2017.
First, I would like to congratulate all of the winners of the Fall LOC Derby.
Some fantastic catches were weighed in showing that Lake Ontario is very alive and healthy despite having a little extra water right now.
But this is the time of transition here in Orleans County and all across Lake Ontario.
Slowly we change from the fantastic Lake Ontario fishing to the fantastic tributary fishing that is offered by our many streams and rivers that feed the big lake.
Already some of these majestic fish are right outside our tributaries waiting for that just right time to make their spawning runs.
Those casting from the piers have already caught brown trout, steelhead trout and even a chinook or two.
But fishing on the big lake is not over quite yet.
There is still plenty of action in the 100 to 200 feet of water range and should continue at least for the next couple of weeks.
On the lower stretches of the “Oak” and on Marsh Creek, Perch fishing is picking up with the cooler temperatures.
Lake Alice is still offering Bluegill around the Waterport Bridge area, bass in the upper stretches and a mixed bag in all the other areas of the lake.
The Erie Canal is still a favorite place to enjoy some great warm water fishing and offers a wide variety of species.
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.
