Fishing Report: Orleans County, New York

Lake Ontario Tributaries – Melting Snows

Today is Wednesday February 8, 2017.


The temperature roller coaster continues with temperatures in the 50’s today and then below freezing for the next two days.

The good news is that all of the tributaries within Orleans County are at least partially open if not fully open.

The bad news is that it has been a very bad year for ice fishermen.

With the days of winter slowly dwindling, a fisherman’s thought now turns toward the first days of spring, but Mother Nature could still throw us some curves.

Fishing on the “Oak” is still producing some decent steelhead fishing and there are still some brown trout thrown into the mix.

On the lower stretches of the “Oak” there is open water, but I haven’t heard of anyone going for yellow perch as of now.

I’ll still be at the Great American Sportsmen’s Show in Harrisburg until this Sunday so it you’re in the area stop in.

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.
