Orleans County Fishing Report 10/25/22

Orleans County Tourism
October 26, 2022
Oak Orchard Creek - Freshwater Fishing Report

Good action reported, consistent from most anglers on the Oak thru the past end of weekend and yesterday. Similar to that push of fish we saw something like a couple weeks ago it sounds like another good push of salmon moving toward the dam with some browns in tow were evidenced later Sunday and Monday. This is after mostly tougher action reported for the begin part of the past weekend. Not hearing of much lower river and rivermouth action as probably the bulk of Kings are more upstream now. Look for some late fish to come thru but likely not in any great concentrations. Expect mod to med, but just less then med mostly clear flows in the Oak. Leaf fall is underway so expect daily water level fluctuations thanks to turbine rack cleaning at the dam.
Wow! The weather continues with near record warmth! It has definitely brought out some more guys so not sure we'll see the typical fall off in the mid week angler numbers. Forecast is continued warm thru tomorrow with chance of precipitation end of day or later tomorrow. Even after that thru the upcoming weekend I still wouldn't call it cold just seasonably cool and continued dry.
Thankful for that continued Erie Canal water feed for select tribs as the forecasted precipitation at this time not likely to cause a big change in trib flows. Guys report good to strong numbers of Kings at the dam and overflow. At least in the turbine channel we can look for some of those fish that won't be taking an overland route, to drop back downstream filling in the fast water gravel sections. More green or fresher fish still being encountered then zombies. Anglers seeing and having hook up success on browns is encouraging we are likely on a trajectory to out pace last years brown trout action already. Then coupled with the mixed bag of Atlantics and steelhead and cohos, the hook up chances sound pretty good.

Target Species:

Salmon, Steelhead, Brown Trout

More Fishing Reports:


Fantastic year round fishing on Lake Ontario and the tribs of Orleans County, New York for Chinook, Coho and Atlantic salmon, Lake, Brown and Steelhead trout, Northern pike, Large and Smallmouth bass, Carp and various other Panfish.
