Fishing Report: Orleans County, New York

Lake Ontario, Lake Alice, Erie Canal

Today is Wednesday November 23, 2016.

Rain or snow is in the forecast for each day the rest of this week, but it may not be much.  The forecast for next week seems to be clearer with moderate temperatures.

Fresh Brown trout and Steelhead seem to be entering the tributaries of Orleans County everyday with the greatest movement taking place first thing in the morning and then again right at dusk.

Fishermen are reporting a fair to good number of hookups each day throughout the system.

Water flows remain low to moderate with better flows on the “Oak” than the other tributaries.

With the colder temperatures at night, some ice may be forming along the banks of the tributaries so care should be taken, especially first thing in the morning.

It seems like the dewatering of the Erie Canal may have started which means that water flows in our tributaries should maintain themselves for the next week or so.

Perch and Bass still remain catches on the lower portion of the “Oak” and on Lake Alice, but sizes remain smaller than normal.
