St. Lawrence River: Bass action has been good for anglers drop-shotting in 20-30 feet. Walleye anglers were connecting late in the evening by trolling crawler harnesses. Pike could be tempted with spinnerbaits fished along weed edges.
Black Lake: Richard at Chapman’s Sports in Hammond reports continued solid fishing for bass (both largemouths and smallmouths). A few walleye were reported, but crappie action has been the best he’s seen in years and never really slowed down this summer. Bluegills have been spotty, and not many pike reports of late.
