St. Lawrence River: Not hearing a lot lately, with lousy weather keeping many anglers home.
Black Lake: Richard at Chapman’s in Hammond reports crappie action has been superb, but many fish are running small and about one in five is keeper size. Some big bluegill have been caught of late, as well as a few walleye. Northern pike fishing has been slow, and bullhead are available but fishing pressure has been light.
Chaumont Bay: Walleye and pike season was off to a slow start, with low water temps keeping fish out in the rivers and creeks. And those that have dispersed were not fully recovered from the spawn and weren’t really aggressive yet. That will change quickly with warmer temps and rain. Brown trout were in shallow water along the sands south of Henderson.
