Capital District Fishing Report – June 15th, 2012

Lake George anglers were seeing lakers and landlocks head into deeper waters, which is typical for this time of year. That generally shifts the attention to bass, which are in post-spawn mode in shallow water. Ditto for Glen Lake. Trout streams have benefitted from cooler temperatures and rains.

Oswego River Walleye were hitting night crawlers, leeches, bucktail jigs and…
