May 9 - Weekend Recap!
While Lake Ontario was a little sloppy over the weekend, there were some windows of opportunity that some boats took advantage of. Looking the long range weather forecast and the recent satellite images, NOW is the time to be getting out. Seems like Salmon are still being caught in 40-50FOW but they are spreading out now all along the Niagara bar shelf & down the shoreline. While spoons are taking the lions share, it's not a bad idea to start mixing in some flasher/fly & meat rigs / big flashers too.
Some nice fish being entered recently in the St Catharines Game & Fish Association Spring Salmon Derby. You can see the leaderboard here.
As well they their Port Dalhousie 3x3 Salmon Classic coming up on the long weekend. Details for that can be found here :
Continuing to see lots of Coho around again. Many of them are coming 15-25 feet down. Red & orange mini flasher/fly combos can't be beat for them. Seeing some more rainbows being caught too!
Over on Lake Erie the perch fishing is getting good. Double hook rigs & minnows are the best bait.
Walleye & pike seasons are opening this weekend too in various southern Ontario zones. Please refer to the fishing regulations for exact dates/locations.
Have a great week everyone
