Fishing is picking up at a pretty good pace on Lake Ontario off the Orleans County shore.

Brown trout fishing is at its best, Coho fishing is good, and an occasional steelhead is showing up in the mix on the inside waters.

Farther on out, lake trout are showing up in abundance.

This is just a great time for fishing on Lake Ontario.

On Lake Alice, it’s some of everything including bass, walleye (not in season yet), crappie, bluegill, perch, bullhead, and even a sucker or two.

I’ve not had a good report on the fishing in the lower portion of the Oak, but I have seen several people fishing at The Point.

The muddy water has pretty well cleared to slightly stained conditions, and temperatures are near normal.

Finally, the Lake Ontario water level is 8 inches above where it was at this time last year and will continue to rise for at least another month.

When approaching shore, please be mindful of the damage your wake could cause during these high-water conditions and approach at idle speeds.

From Point Breeze on Lake Ontario, the World Fishing Network’s Ultimate Fishing Town USA, and the rest of Orleans County, let’s make every day a great fishing day right here in Orleans County.
