Fishing Report: Orleans County, New York

  • Lake Ontario Tributaries 
  • Streams are Flowing, Some Boats in Water

Today is Wednesday February 22, 2017.

Above normal temperatures continue thru the rest of this week and well into next week.

Yesterday there were small boats on Lake Ontario working the shoreline around the tributary discharges and from what I’m told, some brown trout were being taken.

On the “Oak” the best fishing seems to be close to the power generating facility with the flow being almost entirely from the generator discharge, where both steelhead and browns were being taken.  Flows were up to high and visibility reduced to about 2 feet.

Both Johnson and Sandy Creeks have good flows and both were producing a decent number of fish.

Marsh Creek flows were at a normal level but no reports from anyone who has fished it.

On the lower stretches of the “Oak” fishing for Perch should be good to very good, but I have had no reports.

On Tuesday March 7th, Thursday March 9th and Monday March 13th, the DEC will be holding their State-of-the-Lake meetings at Lockport, Rochester and Pulaski respectively.  This is your chance to hear their presentations and ask questions so if you have any concerns please plan on attending one of these meetings.

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.
