orleans Orleans County Fishing Report for May 30, 2019

Recommended Posts

This week's LAKE fishing report is by Capt. John Oravec, Tight Lines Charters, May 30, 2019. 



Fish On! Man, the consistent king salmon action off the entire Orleans County ledges goes on and on!

Prime fish holding depth ranges widely from 40 to 150 feet of water. Get up and set your downriggers at 35 to 70 feet deep and get your fighting belt on. A number of riggings are getting hit including spoons, flasher/fly and "meat" rigs as I guide my charter groups.  It's easy to see the recreational and charter boats are all getting hooked up.


Here is a tip for the many visiting recreational boat anglers to enhance your chances of even better catches. The currents along the inside water - really from Bald Eagle Harbor to Green Harbor, "Chrome Dome" - spread the schools of feeding salmonids literally over miles of flushable water. So, it's best to spread out avoiding tight packs of boats. This way everybody has room to run their favorite long line rigs like copper and leadcore. Take note that a reel screaming 15 pound "teenager" Chinook hooked on a ten color leadcore line may be 700 feet away from the lucky boat!
