Orleans County Fishing Report

Today is Wednesday, April 12, 2017.

Winter, summer and spring all in one week, this must be a new record.

Depending on which weather forecast you listen to, this weekend will either be summerlike and dry or spring like and wet.

After all of the rain/snow that we have had over the last several days, all of the tributaries within Orleans County are high and muddy.

Lake Alice is still very stained as is the mouth of the “Oak” and out into Lake Ontario for several hundred feet.

As you get away from the mouths of the tributaries you will find some of that nice “Lake Erie” green water to enjoy.

In the “Oak” both fresh and spawned steelhead are up for the taking and with the higher waterflows are on the move.

Lake Alice is offering a great mixed bag of fish including Bluegill, Crappie, Perch, Bass, suckers and Bullhead.

On Lake Ontario, some very good brown trout fishing is being enjoyed when the wind cooperates for that near shore fishery.

Action around our marinas are entering their all-out phase getting boats ready to launch for another great season.

The pens for the pen rearing project are ready to go and just waiting for the delivery of fish.

With under a month until the opening of the spring LOC Derby it’s time for that shakedown cruise to make sure all of the work that was done this winter is working properly.

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