The Fishcap Report, Week of June 6 - 13


Fishcap News: Week of June 6 - 13

Fishing pro and Fishcap advisory board member Chris Flint shared this timely reminder:

"Summer has arrived and along with that fishing season is in full swing. It is important for anglers to remember when traveling from one body of water to another, not to transport invasive species. This cross contamination can ruin a fishery.

"When you are done fishing at a location, be sure to take time and clean off your boat, trailer and truck in the parking lot, above the water line. Leave the weeds, grass, etc. from the body of water you were fishing at that same location.

Be sure when you arrive home to wash down your boat, preferably with hot water, and any live wells or containers which could hold species that may contaminate another body of water. By taking the time to do this we will preserve our bodies of water for others to enjoy in the future. Good luck and enjoy your time on the water!"

St. Lawrence River

Northern Pike are biting in Red Mills area. Anglers report nice-sized northern taken on artificial lures with spinners.

As we move into June, the walleyes are still biting, but you may have to search a bit harder. Try trolling in front of the St. Lawrence Psychiatric Center in Ogdensburg using a lure that runs about 20 feet deep.
