The Fishcap report for May 9-16, 2013
- FISHCAP, a public-private partnership promoting the St. Lawrence River Valley as “the fishing capital of the world,” was awarded top honors by the New York State Tourism and Visitors Association at NYSTVA’s annual conference this week in Niagara Falls.
This week's fishing forecast...
- Michigan Stinger Spoons have been best lure off planer boards and downriggers down 6-10 feet in 12-25 feet of water.
- Best colors are combinations chartreuse and red or most “glo” greens.
- Walleye started slow over opening weekend with a few being caught. Black River Bay and Chaumont Bay are best areas to try.

St. Regis River
- The trout fishing should be red hot on the St. Regis River near Nicholville in St. Lawrence County: the good folks at the DEC released more than 1730 brown trout there this week. These were beautiful fish in the 2-year-old class.
Thanks to angler and FISHCAP board member Bob Giordano.
