Orleans County/Lake Ontario Fishing Report – Nov. 7, 2017

  • Fresh Trout/Salmon are in Trib’s
  • Upper Oak is HOT with BROWN TROUT
  • Lake Alice Crappie Bite Starting

Today is Tuesday November 7, 2017

More seasonal weather has finally arrived along with an abundance of rain.  Here in Western New York we are well on the way to setting new records for the amount or precipitation in 2017.

Let’s start the fish report with the lower stretches of the “Oak”: Perch fishing is good to very good, bass are active and northern pike are being caught occasionally.

On the upper stretches of the “Oak” it’s brown trout time.  Brown trout in the upper teens are being caught and numbers are very good.

Fresh salmon are still entering the system along with the very start of the steelhead/rainbow trout run.

Water levels on all of the tributaries within Orleans County are slightly high to high and, with all of the rain we have experienced over the past few days, should go higher.  Water color will go from stained to muddy for a day or two.

On Lake Alice, some crappie are starting to show up and bass fishing remains as good as ever.

Please remember that this coming weekend will be the last weekend for the Archers Club to be serving meals.  Speaking of the Archers Club here are the winners of their Catch and Release Derby: In the Adult Division, Mia Stone had a 26.555 pound salmon, Nat Smith had a 11.115 Pound brown trout and Paul Davidson had a 6.12 pound steelhead.  In the Youth Division, Ben Smith had a 16.630 Pound salmon.

Next year’s Archers Club Catch and Release Fly Fishing Derby will be held on October 17 – 19, 2018.

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.
