Fishing Report: Orleans County, New York Lake Ontario, Lake Alice, Erie Canal for August 25, 2016

Well at some point the lake has to set up again, but not quite yet. There are big fish on the inside waters but also very warm water. The water temperature is slowly dropping to more seasonal temperatures, but it’s not happening fast.

If you’re looking for numbers, the 30 plus line seems to be where the best action is, but they are smaller fish. That area seems to have a good mix of Coho, Chinook and Steelhead.

On the inland waters fishing is also on the slow side. Lake Alice is giving up some Bass and Carp along with a few Bluegill.

I haven’t had any reports from the Erie Canal lately, but usually the wide water area is a good spot for a mixed bag of fish.

The 40th Annual Fish Odyssey runs through this Sunday, August 28th and the Fall LOC Derby runs through September 5th this year.

Speaking of the Fall LOC Derby, right now the top 12 salmon in it are all over 30 pounds which speaks well of Lake Ontario fishing!
