Wayne County Fishing Update

 

Lake Ontario-Remember if you are fishing the LOC Derby…make sure everyone on board is registered. A nice 32 king was in the money; however, everyone wasn’t signed-up. Don’t let this happen to you.

Lately, the kings have been hitting in 175 to 200 feet of water down 70 to 80. That of course changes with the wind blowing water temps around.

Most of the advice coming from the anglers that are on the water is to vary your speed, understanding the currents that create havoc underneath the surface. Kings have been hitting meat, spoons and flies. Green and silver spin doctors are working with the flies.

They have been catching mature kings straight out from Hughes’ Marina and Sodus Bay.

Find the bait or the big hooks and vary what you throw at them.

Bays- The Wayne County Youth Derby has ended and the awards are this Sunday, July 31st at the Sodus Point fire hall. The fun starts at 11 am.

The LOC Summer Derby awards will be the same day at Captain Jack’s Tavern. It’s open to the public so if you want to see $10,000 given to a lucky angler stop down at the Point.… that action starts at 4 pm.

Largemouth bass are coming from Sodus and Port Bays. Just fish the weedlines and uses any artificial bait.

They are also catching a few crappies at the south end of Port Bay.

Check out the rest of the Wayne County Tourism web page for the locations and hours of local bait and tackle shops. www.waynecountytourism.com.

We have a brand new Wayne County Fishing Brochure. This publication features where to go, what to use, and what to catch. Call our office for a free fishing packet, including the new brochure. 1-800-527-6510. We also have a new publication on Great Lakes fishing.

Erie Canal- The canal waters have produced a bunch of cat fish near Palmyra. You can launch at Clyde, Lyons and Newark or fish from the shore. There have been many local bass fishing contests from the Widewaters in Newark.
