Orleans County Fishing Report

Today is Wednesday, March 22, 2017.

Well spring is here at least on the calendar but not by Mother Nature’s standards.

Yesterday was spring like but today feels more like January than mid-March.

Then by the weekend more spring like conditions will return and continue into next week.

This cold snap again today will keep the ice around for just a while longer but most of it should be gone by the first part of next week.

On Lake Alice things are still pretty much closed down with the icing conditions.

On the upper portion of the “Oak” steelhead and brown trout are still be caught near the dam and in the portions of faster moving water.

The open sections of the mid waters of the “Oak” are producing Perch, Northern pike and even an occasional Walleye, But Walleye season is closed for the time being.

All of the smaller tributaries are still iced over in the slower moving water sections.

Don’t forget that on Saturday, April 1st they will be assembling the pens for the pen rearing project so please come out and lend a hand.

Only 45 more days until the 1st day of the Spring LOC Derby.

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.
