Summer 2022 salmon, lakers, browns and bass

June 18- fishing has been slow the last few weeks, but there are signs that it is turning around.  West winds are starting to bring us some silver!  The last few days, Hell Yeah charters have caught some nice silvers, including kings.  There are Lakers to be had in 100-140.  And the brown trout bite should get going again soon.  The thermocline is getting set up so finding temp (low 50s) near the bottom will be key.

in the bay, bass fishing opened this weekend.  There should be bass and pike along the weed lines

Sodus Bay Fishing Spring 2022. Kings, Browns, Bass, Perch


June 7, 2022- Early June means transition time in Sodus bay.  Surface temps are in the low to mid 60s and fish are spread out.  Guys are finding a few kings and steel in deep water, often 200+, on spoons and flasher/fly.  there are a few browns being caught, but not a ton.  They should be in water less than 100 feet, depending on temps.  Expect the fishing to pick back up once the thermocline is set up!  In the bay, the bass bite is great.  Guys did very well on rockbass this year, but that should be winding down now.  They’ll be on weed bed edges this time of year.

May 18, 2022- fishing this spring has been good.  The brown trout bite has been much better along the shore, with both big and small fish being caught when conditions are good.  There has been a decent mid-offshore steelhead/coho/king bite from 150-300 as well.  Expect the browns to start moving a bit deeper soon as surface temps were mid 50s this weekend.

In the bay, the perch bite is slowing, but the rock bass fishing is on fire.  Worms around docks should do the trick.  Guys are catching bass, as well.

Spring 2022

March 17 2022- although there is still plenty of ice on the bay, it is dwindling quickly. I expect to be to be open in the next week or so, if things continue as they have. I would certainly not recommend anything in the realm of icefishing. Once the water is open, perch fishing should be good. Also, brown trout will be along the shoreline soon, and here’s to hoping that there’s more of them this year than last year. Remember, everyone in the small boat needs to wear a life jacket until May, and it is always better to be safe
