Orleans County Fishing Report for January 2, 2019

Happy New Year from the Staff at Orleans County Tourism!

This week’s fishing report is from Ron Bierstine from Oak Orchard Tackle and Lodge, January 2, 2019.

Thanks to rain a couple of nights ago, all the tributary flows have stained or dirty water color. Flows really haven’t bumped up all that much – if at all – in the Oak. Flows in the Oak are about moderate to medium or what you might call “one click less than medium”. Water color is stained at approximately 1 ft plus of visibility and may get a little dirtier over today or tomorrow. Flows in the other area smaller tributaries are about medium with dirty water color. Flows should be maintained, give or take, with generally the moderate weather ahead. Just a slight chance of snow showers are forecast over the next couple days but still no great prolonged cold snap is expected. Angler success is a little unknown thanks to few reports back in. Any presentations will need to be big and or bright and or slow and or deep and or stinky for best chance at hook ups given the present conditions.
