Today is February 15, 2018. This week’s fishing report is from Ron Bierstine at Oak Orchard Tackle & Lodge, today:
“Thanks to warm temperatures yesterday and today melting snow, all the tributary flows are on the rise. Forecast is for above freezing temperatures thru tonight and some tomorrow with the chance for rain or showers later Friday. The weekend’s forecast is seasonal around 30° F and then another warm up next week. For now, flows in the Oak are slightly high with still mostly clear water color of 3 feet of visibility. Flows consist of just turbine water. Flows are likely to stay up and get dirtier or go higher by turbine flows and/or overflow especially by next week if the forecast is realized. Anglers are on the Oak today with good fishing conditions with reports of hook-ups on the cusp of the rising flows. A prolonged good head of high water could draw in some fresh steelhead migrations – the calendar is about ideal. The other smaller tributaries are high and dirty and likely headed to blown and dirty if not sooner, or by next week if the forecast is realized. Most of the winter ice and debris should be moving out, but there could be some ice jams and backed up flows in spots.”
