Orleans County Fishing Report

Today is Wednesday, March 8, 2017.

The rain of yesterday and today along with the warmer temperatures will give way to more seasonal conditions and by the weekend expect temperatures in the 20’s with the possibility of some snow showers.

The only good thing that I can say about the weather is that we are that much closer to spring.

All the tributaries within Orleans County are still ice free for now but bank ice could be in a possibility in the very near future.

Both Johnson Creek and the “Oak” are still producing a good mixture of both steelhead and brown tout even with both having slightly to moderately stained water but this rain could change that soon.

Bullhead are starting to be taken in our tributaries but that could disappear with colder weather quickly approaching.

Perch, bass, Crappie and Bluegill are being caught from the Kenyonville Bridge but the numbers are up and down.

The winds have not been very favorable for small boats to work the shoreline on Lake Ontario and I have not heard of anyone producing much from casting from shore.

For most of us spring cannot get here any too soon.

Lastly the pens for the pen rearing project will be assembled on Saturday April 1st so it you’re in the area why not stop down and lend a hand.

This a great project that is a chance to help out in keeping our fishery great.

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.
