Summer 2022- August Fishing for Kings and Browns on Lake Ontario

Summer 2022- August Fishing for Kings and Browns on Lake Ontario

August 9th- Fishing has been good for kings, though their location varies quite a bit from day to day.  One day they’ll be in the nearshore waters (100-200) and others they’ll be way offshore (500+).  Wind direction and water temp generally dictates location of the kings.  They’re biting on cut-bait, flasher-fly, and spoons.  Browns are definitely around, usually less than 100 FOW, where you can find 50-something degree water near the bottom.  We saw some huge scores for the sodus pro am, with big boxes of nice kings a fairly common occurrence.  Expect more action in the nearshore waters as we approach September- 80-140 will been prime habitat the last few weeks of August!

Our Buddies at Hell Yeah Charters and Honey Hole Charters have been doing well.  Give them a shout if you want to get out.

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

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.
