Orleans County Fishing Report

Today is Tuesday September 12, 2017.

The cool down in the temperatures at night have started to move pre-spawn trout and salmon even closer to the tributaries that they will be spawning in.

Early morning and late evening fishermen working the waters around the jetties on Point Breeze have had some success catching brown trout, rainbow/steelhead trout and chinook salmon.

Those trolling around the point have had their best luck in that early morning period.

There are still some fresh fish in the 80 to 200 feet of water range but with the changing winds of the past week it’s hard to pin down an area any closer than that.

The weather over the next week returns to more summer like conditions with daytime temperatures in the high 70’s.

On the inland waters of Orleans County Perch fishing has slowed a bit on the lower stretches of the “Oak” but some decent catches are still being reported.

Fishermen on Lake Alice are still reporting Bluegill catches but still smaller sizes.

Bass fishing on the upper stretches of Lake Alice is good to very good as is fishing on the Erie Canal.

From Point Breeze on Lake Ontario, the World Fishing Network’s Ultimate Fishing Town USA and the rest of Orleans County, let’s make every day a great fishing day right here in Orleans County.
