Fishing Report: Orleans County, New York Lake Ontario, Lake Alice, Erie Canal for August 3, 2016

Well our old nemesis, the northeast wind, is back and really riling up Lake Ontario big time.

Some are saying that where fish are found this minute, they won’t be there 5 minutes from now.

The good news is that it looks like we have lost the northwest wind, at least for a few days, so hopefully the lake will calm down and return to more favorable conditions.

With all of that being said, those fishing the lake can plan on being in the search mode for a while yet.

On Lake Alice Carp seems to be the most consistent fish being caught right now. Crappie and Bluegill have headed to their super-secret hiding spots and bass fishing seems to be slower than normal.

Hopefully, Mother Nature will give us a break so that fishing conditions can return to more usual conditions for the rest of the summer.

From Point Breeze on Lake Ontario, the World Fishing Network’s Ultimate Fishing Town USA and the rest of Orleans County. We try to make everyday a great fishing day in Orleans County.
