Port Ontario. Salmon are being found in 50 to 80 feet of water.
Fishing 30 to 55 feet down with E-chips, Spin Doctors, and Inticer
flashers with A-Tom-Mik flies, J-plugs and spoons all seem to be
working. Good colors have been green, white, glow and chrome. Brown
trout are still being found early in the morning in 60 to 70 feet
of water on Northern King, Michigan Stingers and Dream-weaver
spoons. Smallmouth bass fishing has picked up around Mexico

water areas. Trolling with stickbaits like Jr. Thunderstiks and
Rapalas is working well. Bass fishing continues to be good around

no big numbers yet. Some bass are still being taken on crabs,
