Fish Forecast for June 14, 2013

Tonawanda News — 1. Lake Ontario and tributaries

Yankee Troller, a team led by Capt. Rick Hajecki of Rochester, put together a couple more solid days of fishing during the Orleans County Pro-Am last weekend to win the Classic West Cup for the salmon and trout fishing series to earn an extra check of $20,000. With his third and fourth place finishes in the Classic and Trophy divisions in Orleans, his two tournament total winnings was $36,000 for his teams consistent fishing action. 

Winner of the Orleans County Classic Division was the Vision Quest 4 squad led by Capt. Bob Buck of Waterloo. They became the first team to claim the Orleans title in the eight year history of the event after leading the field after the first day. In the Trophy Division, local team Lone Wolf, led by Capt. Dan Evans of Wilson, was top dog overall. All told, more than $105,000 in cash was handed out in the Niagara and Orleans Pro-Am tournaments. 

As long as we are on the subject of Orleans County and titles, the World Fishing Network announced its winners for 2013 for the Ultimate Fishing Town and Point Breeze was named the winner in a recent press release. Last year, it was Olcott Beach winning the title after a nationwide voting process. The community will receive $25,000 for its efforts. Out in Lake Ontario fish are scattered with the recent influx of cold water last weekend. Wes Walker at The Slippery Sinker in Olcott weighed in two 22 pound kings that were caught in 80 feet of water in front of the harbor – one on a spoon and another on a flasher-fly. 

Fishing was decent in the 70 to 120 foot range with smaller fish being caught in the top 50 feet of water and mature kings coming from below 60 feet. A few browns have been caught off the piers. At Burt Dam, reports are good for bass, carp and rock bass.
