Orleans County Fishing Report

Today is Wednesday May 10, 2017.

The weather for the rest of this week seems to be cooler temperatures and just a slight chance of rain through the weekend.

Temperatures should rebound into the 60s next week which indicates more favorable winds and plenty of sunshine, that’s the big orange globe in the sky during the daytime.

High water conditions still exist but when boats do get out on Lake Ontario they are picking up a good mixed bag of fish.

With the Spring LOC Derby in full swing a big surprise is that there are only 4 Chinook salmon on the leader board to date and all of them are from the west end of the lake.

Brown trout and lake trout catches are spread out across the lake and Walleye catches remain mainly on the east end of the lake.

With 4 days still left in the derby, there’s still plenty of time to get your name on the leader board and some cash in your pocket.

On Lake Alice, water levels have dropped somewhat and water clarity is slowly improving.

Bullhead, Bass, Crappie and Bluegill are all being caught but not in any great numbers yet.

On the lower stretches of the “Oak” steelhead and an occasional brown trout are being taken and with the cooler temperatures for the rest of this week, this trend should continue.

Watering of the Erie Canal seems to be on hold awaiting some repairs on a section just west of Albion.

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.
