June Report Lake Ontario Rochester, NY

    June has been a very interesting month. It started a little slow with the silver bite, but the Lake Trout action was great. Then we transitioned to unbelievable action with Atlantic Salmon and Domestic Rainbows. This past weekend the King Salmon and Steelhead Trout appeared. The fish are incredibly beautiful and big this year as our forage base seems to be bountiful with both Smelt and Alewife’s.
