Orleans County Fishing Report

Today is Wednesday February 1, 2017.

Just when it seems like the weather is turning in favor of the ice fishermen; Mother Nature takes it back yet again.

Colder weather stays with us thru part of the weekend but then again goes above freezing for the first part of next week.

Shore ice is forming along the banks of all of the tributaries within Orleans County so caution should be taken when entering any of our streams for the rest of this week.

There are some fresh steelhead being taken along with the resident fish and those conditions should remain thru next week.

The smaller tributaries should begin to ice over but then should reopen as next week’s warm up takes place,

For the ice fishermen it’s just one disappointment after another this year.

On the lower portions of the “Oak” conditions are not good for small boats but that can change by early next week.

On Lake Alice open water is starting to ice over again but the warm up will take care of that.

For 9 days, starting this Saturday, I will be attending the Great American Outdoor Show in Harrisburg, Pa. so if you are in the area stop by booth 4614 and say hi.

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