1. Lake Ontario and tributaries – Action on Lake Ontario
continues to be very good for trout and salmon trollers working out of the
mouth of the river, Wilson and Olcott. In the Lake Ontario Trout and Salmon
Association’s King Salmon Tournament last weekend, Fisherman's Daughter came
away with the win for big fish – 27 pounds 14 ounces and the 3-2-3 win with
65.56 pounds for three fish! Impressive totals. Capt. Matt Yablonsky of Wet
Net Charters has been doing great all week. Last weekend this was his hot
set-up on the Niagara Bar. Morning bite was in 190-205 feet of water around
the red can, 40-60 down and an all-spoon bite. Early afternoon bite was
140-150 feet of water but closer to the Canadian line, 55-80 feet down down
with still mostly a spoon bite. Silver Streak lures were taking most bites.
Afternoon/early evening bite was 100-150 feet of water on the ledge. Tried
to turn a few but was never able to. He ended up by 4 mile. He couldn't keep
his spin doctor and A-Tom-Mik flies in the water. Afternoon matures all came
on flies. There has been a good mix of fish off Olcott 40 to 50 feet down
over 80 to 100 foot depths. Spoons or flasher-fly rigs. Stephen Liebler of
Williamsville reeled in a 30.02 pound salmon earlier in the week to take
over the lead in the Salmon Division on a flasher-fly. Larry Wills of
Lewiston is still leading for the Grand Prize with a 30 pound, 15 ounce
fish. Wade Winch of North Tonawanda is still the top steelie catcher, but
Alfonse Gouker of Pennsylvania got close Sunday with a 17 and a half pound
steelhead weighed in at The Slippery Sinker. Bob Turton of Sanborn lost hold
of the lake trout lead when Ephriam Burt weighed in a 24 pound, three ounce
fish in the eastern basin around Henderson Harbor. First place brown is
still 17.06 pound brown trout caught out of Wilson by Thomas Gies of Ann
Arbor, Michigan. The derby continues to July 31 and the website to follow
the action is www.loc.org.
