Fishing Report: Orleans County, New York Lake Ontario, Lake Alice, Erie Canal for September 22, 2016

The end of summer this week will be singled by much cooler temperatures by the end of the week. Some rain on Friday may entice some salmon to make their way at least part way up the tributaries within Orleans County.

Those with smaller boats are having some luck close to the tributaries mouths, as are the casters from the piers.

Part way up Oak Orchard River, some Perch are being taken, but reports have a good number of smaller ones in the mix.

On Lake Alice, the Bluegills have become very active around the Waterport Bridge area and, of course, Bass are still being taken throughout Lake Alice and other small ponds and lakes, including the Erie Canal.

With hunting season just around the corner, fishing pressure is down slightly.

As the tributary season starts to ramp up, it’s good to review those good safety practices and check all your gear again, including your waders to insure another great season.
