Fish Forecast: Derby continues in Lake Ontario


Niagara Gazette — Lake Alice – The bluegill bite is starting to happen a bit more frequently according to Mike Waterhouse. The best spots have been around the Waterport Bridge and the Kenyonville Bridge.

Oneida Lake – Fishing has been steady according to reports. In the Cicero-Mattydale Lions Club Walleye Tournament last weekend for the opener, Joe Thomas of Olcott won the $1,000 check with a 26-inch fish he caught at night fishing near Scriba Creek in Constantia. Other good spots include Sylvan Beach, Lewis Point, near the Route 81 bridge, Big Bay and around Buoy 117. Dark jigs top the list, but yellow was also working. Walleye Magnets and Dixie Spinners were catching some fish, too.
