Orleans County Fishing Report 4/19/22

Orleans County Tourism
April 19, 2022
Oak Orchard Creek - Freshwater Fishing Report

Another cold snap! The high temps today are around 40F. Windy too, with rain showers but at least no snow from the latest storm here on the WNY Lake Ontario Plain. We got some rain last night but not enough to effect any great change in trib flows. Think something like flows going from low to not so low. We'll be back to more seasonable temps for mid and end of week with a chance of showers Thursday. Warmer temps near 70F are in the forecast for the weekend.

One positive for the continued cold weather is trib water temps have not spiked high yet. So with light angling pressure in the Oak, a few drop backs, spawners and fresh fish have been encountered in the low and clear flows. One angler for the beginning part of this week reported good action. The lower flows will concentrate the available fish in a few good lies or gravel spots. I'm not hearing a lot from the other area smaller waterways but you can bet patient anglers could find some drop back action or a few fresh browns or steelhead in the lower reaches. There are miles of water for fish to be dropping back from compared to about only a short mile of Oak water. On the backside of this latest cold weather and accompanying wind, the land lubber casters and small boat trollers and small boat casters should be able to get back on those near shore brown trout in semi stained water while the cooler water and bait hangs around.

Target Species:

Steelhead, Brown Trout
