Fishing Report: Orleans County, New York

Lake Ontario Trib’s – Browns/Steelies

Today is Wednesday January 25, 2017.

We are in the midst of another reprieve from old man winter, at least for another day or two.

The smaller tributaries within Orleans County are at higher and muddier conditions.  This due to the warmer temperatures and rain/snow that we have had in the last day or two.

Conditions on the upper portion of the “Oak” from the dam to just before Marsh Creek offer some good opportunities for steelhead action and even a few brown trout have been taken.

All of the live baits and even some of the more popular flies are being used.

The lower portion of the “Oak,” from Marsh Creek north, is displaying muddy conditions, but that should only last for a day or two.

Lake Alice is open in some areas and has a very thin ice covering in others, so it is totally unusable for anglers right now.

With temperatures dropping below freezing again in the very near future, be mindful of ice buildup along the banks of our tributaries.

This weekend I will be attending the New York Sportsman’s Outdoor Expo in Syracuse so if you’re in the area, stop by and chat for a while.

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.
