Fishing Report: Orleans County, New York Lake Ontario, Lake Alice, Erie Canal for August 11, 2016

The Storms of earlier this week has the lake and the fish all mixed up again. You can find fish anywhere from 60 feet of water all the way out to the 32 line, the trick is getting them to bite. Add to that the fact that today is one of those calm hot days, making things a little more uncomfortable.

These are the conditions that could settle the lake back out again and really turn the fishing on. Even as adverse as conditions are right now, there are still some great fish being entered into the Orleans County Rotary Club Derby which runs through August 21st this year.

Fishing on Lake Alice has also slowed for all of the species including Carp. Fishermen are still catching some Bluegill, Crappie and Perch from the bridges and the bass are still fairly active.

Just a reminder that the 40th Annual Fish Odyssey runs from August 20th to the 28th and the Fall LOC Derby runs from August 19th through September 5th this year.
