- Fishing for a Cure starts July 15
- Fishing is Good!
Today is Wednesday July 5, 2017.
The weather over the 4th couldn’t have been any better, but change is coming. Rain is in the forecast for at least part of this weekend.
According to the Army Corps of Engineers, the level of Lake Ontario is supposed to drop about 6″ over the next month which will help a lot of our facilities.
A quick look at the LOC leader board shows the big salmon at 27 pounds already and the board is filling up quickly.
Fishing along the coastline of Orleans County has been good to very good over the past week or so producing good mixed bags of fish.
Perch, bass and northern pike are still being caught in the lower stretches of the “Oak”.
On Lake Alice, the one comment I got from one fishermen was “I didn’t know that there were that many jet skis in the world”. Bass fishing in the upper stretches of Lake Alice is producing some very nice fish.
Returning again this year is the Drew’s Crew, “Fishing for a Cure for Juvenile Diabetes.” The derby will take place on July 15th this year and will follow the best 3 fish format that is so popular. The entry fee is $50.00 cash with half going to the prize structure and half to Juvenile Diabetes research. This year you will be able to fish out of either Point Breeze or Bald Eagle Marina but the weigh-in will take place at Ernst’s Lake Breeze Marina. You must be entered by 7 AM on the 15th and the weigh-In closes at 3PM so please don’t be late. Please join us for a fun day of fishing while supporting this great cause.
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.
