Adirondacks Fishing Report – June 15th, 2012

Lake Champlain

Bass season opened June 9 on the big lake, but the biggest news of late has been the outstanding lake trout and landlocked salmon fishing. Reports have been coming in on lakers and landlocks in both quantity and quality, with “clean” (lamprey-free) fish showing up. Not hearing a lot on the bass right yet, but they should be in spawning mode and available in very shallow water. In the lake’s South Bay, bass were in post-spawn mode. Not hearing much on walleye or panfish, but that may be a product of the rainy weather which has kept many anglers off the water.

Trout waters have seen plenty of rain, which isn’t bad, and better yet, cool temperatures. That’s made for some outstanding fishing on the West Branch of the Ausable River, which right now should be showing some Green Drakes in at least some sections of the river. Caddis and stonefly patterns are also a good bet.
