sprung. The fishing reports are great everywhere. Turkeys are
strutting in the sunshine. Pheasants are cackling for their hens.
It gets greener every day. I love this time of year. Fishing on
Lake Ontario is great, book your charter and participate in the
$1,000 a day salmon tournament. And now the reports.
Narby’s Superette and Tackle reported that stream fishing in Oak
Orchard has been good. Northern pike are being caught on live
baits and red and white daredevils. Perch (some good-sized ones at
times) are being caught using all the live baits. Minnows are
especially effective. Bass are being reported, but remember bass
season does not open until the third Saturday in June. Pike and
walleye opened last Saturday and walleye are being reported. There
are still some steelhead and browns in the stream but they are
starting to go back into the lake as the temperatures start going
up. The temperature of the lake is 45 degrees, so you may get some
fish around the pier area. They are using small rapalas or stick
baits and little cleos in various colors. Blue and Greens have

they are fishing in 20-40 foot of water anywhere from 15-30 foot
down. Planner boards are being used with spoons or small stick
baits. Again, colors vary. A little west of the river around
Johnson’s Creek has been good.
has been productive and Lake Alice has very good reports for all
types of fish. I have heard that some great catches of walleyes
are coming from here. Lots of fish in the 3-5 lb. Range. Try
worm harnesses and jigs. For bigger walleyes, try the breakwall on
Oak Orchard with some live minnows. Ron Bierstine at Orleans
Outdoors reports that there is good shoreline action casting for
trout and salmon now and it should last through the month of May.
browns and leaping steelhead have been caught at Point Breeze.
Small boat anglers with simple spreads just flat lining baits
have had good success. River mouths are good bets like at Point
Breeze or anywhere along the shoreline where 3 to 5+ feet of
warmer water is within casting distance. Brown trout are the main
quarry, but shore anglers may encounter salmon and steelhead.
Still fishing with egg snacks, casting spoons and retrieving
streamers can all be productive. Nothing like the jarring strike
of a hungry trout while you are on the retrieve.
in-shore waters are what the trout and salmon are drawn to. Calm
or light west winds are best. East winds tend to make fishing more
difficult. Light north winds can keep the inshore waters from
heating up too much allowing shore anglers casts to productive
some smallmouth bass now being encountered and look for many
incidental catches of bass now through May. Panfish, like perch
and rock bass can be caught by the bucket full during the spring
period. The Erie Canal is filled so the seasonal consistent water
feed for the Oak has commenced keeping flows at a moderate level.
The Oak has a few steelhead or browns in the middle river course
and again in the downstream slower water. Other larger tribs like
the Cattaraugus Creek and Niagara River will hold onto some good
steelhead action. It’s time to get out into the great outdoors and
share some quality time with those you cherish. Go fishing. Go
hiking. Take a picnic. Call a turkey. Go bird watching. Just get
out there and enjoy! Tight lines, screaming reels. Doc
