Lake Ontario: Some brown trout and steelhead are being caught in
the tributaries like Irondequoit Creek and Bear Creek. Anglers are
also having success casting Cleos and Krocodiles near the mouths
tributaries. Yellow perch have been biting well in Port Bay on

anglers casting black and silver and blue and silver stick baits
like Rapalas, Storm Jr. Thundersticks and Bass Pro Shops Nitro
Minnows. The best action was taking place for shore anglers is just
before dark to 7:30 p.m.

been taking Estaz eggs flies, egg sacs, and night crawlers. Egg
sacs fished under a float continue to work especially well.

while steelhead are being caught throughout the river. Steelhead
fishing continues to be very good and the most productive
techniques have been float fishing with egg sacs or beads, and
bottom bouncing with egg
sacs or flies.

that only a few walleye are being caught on jigs tipped with night
crawlers or on bottom-bouncing worm harnesses.

some, and anglers are still getting an occasional salmon.

with minnows and jigs tipped with spikes fished along the weed
