Fishing Report: Orleans County, New York

Lake Ontario, Lake Alice, Erie Canal

Fishing Report for Day Ending December 28, 2016.

With daytime temperatures above freezing for most of next week, conditions should remain good for stream fishing throughout all of the tributaries within Orleans County.

Unfortunately this means that the ice fishermen will have to wait a little longer before they can ply their trade.

The precipitation that we have received over the past few days should help to maintain decent tributary flows and thereby keep fish moving throughout the system.

The muddy water from the snow melt and rain have just reached the upper section of Lake Alice, so flows on the lower portion of the “Oak” are still clear to just slightly stained.

Fishing pressure on all of our waterways is very light due to the holidays, but that could change with more favorable conditions.

There are still steelhead and brown trout moving thru the system and even a rogue salmon every now and then.

With open water at the “Point,” it wouldn’t surprise me to find someone with a small boat doing a little last minute open water perch fishing in the next day or two.

From Point Breeze on Lake Ontario, the World Fishing Network’s Ultimate Fishing Town USA and the rest of Orleans County.  We try to make everyday a great fishing day in Orleans County.
