Capt. Bob Songin of Reel Excitement Charters posted a video on 6/28/22:
Tuesday's fishing was "EPIC" despite it being a bit breezy. They consulted with Solar Tables to see what the fishing forecast was and "it was epic"! Rods were flying! Good mix of Kings, Cohoes and steelhead. Warm weather got pushed in with NW winds. Stopped at 27 and fished to the 29. The first pass out was epic; south pass coming in wasn't as good, but they still caught fish. Riggers were 50-65-80, divers 100-200, 200 coppers. Watch his full report on Facebook.

Memorial Troll in honor of Paul Czarnecki
From Tom Rivers, Orleans Hub:
About 15 charter boat captains filled with people gathered Sunday afternoon for a memorial troll from the Oak Orchard River to Lake Ontario. The charter captains were honoring their friend, Paul Czarnecki, a charter captain the past 20 years at the Oak Orchard.
To honor Czarnecki, the charter captains took their boats about 2 miles out into the lake, just north of the Oak Orchard Harbor. That is where the lake is about 80 feet deep. Czarnecki would use that spot to put the fishing line in the water. The captains then went east about 4 miles, to a glass house that is a landmark near the Kendall town line. Czarnecki believed the best fishing was between the Oak Orchard Harbor and the 4 miles to the glass house.
This week's fishing report is from Capt. John "Troutman" Oravec from Tightlines Charters:
At last! After several days of strong west winds both charter and "Rec" boats got back out and fish were found off Point Breeze. Trollers now have the choice of 70-90 ft structure spots for kings and Lakers…and offshore 300-400' for a mix of silvers. My advice from recent full day trips is to favor structure fishing east of the Oak to the "Nose". Make sure the marine weather is safe then favor offshore trolls west of Johnson's. These fish are on the alewives feed – spoons like the Northern King # 28 and Dreamweaver DW's are producing. Go get 'em!
This week's report is from Capt. John "Troutman" Oravec from Tight Lines Charters.
The Orleans County waters at Point Breeze are providing an excellent mixed bag catch of late! I've heard from visiting "Rec" boats (AKA recreational) that west of the Point in 100-200 ft of water got 'em steelhead and coho salmon action. Fishing the surface to 30 ft down on orange spoons. The charter fleet has had king salmon action in 100-120 FOW using chrome glow flasher fly combinations down to 60 ft. I have been fishing my clients from 50-150 ft. Mainly with an old school program. With cool water temperatures, rig depths of 30 to 80 ft down are getting Troutman 2 anglers kings coho and some whopper lake trout! Typical more summer- like weather is setting in, including steady southwest to west breezes perfect for attracting even more fish to Orleans County/Lake Ontario waters off the Oak!
