Orleans County Fishing Report 11/1/22

Orleans County Tourism
November 1, 2022
Oak Orchard Creek - Freshwater Fishing Report

Welcome to November and better brown trout chances! And really you may not want to give up completely on salmon efforts just yet. There's still good numbers of fish higher in the Oak watercourse nearer the dam. Many still in good green shape with some old moldies now on Halloween zombie patrol downstream. Fishing pressure not bad, as mentioned above we may be in a bit of a lull between ending salmon efforts and starting brown trout efforts.
Flows yesterday in the AM were down but did rebound nicely to the mod or almost med flows we've had this season. Nice to see most all flows now contained in the turbine channel. Some forecasted showers that for once turned into more like rainstorms yesterday and today have brought along that nice gloom for fish migrations, but probably will not change any trib flows much. Reports of lowering flows in Johnson Creek and we are unsure why? Canal feed should be continued there so if we find out any intel for that we will pass along.
Warm weather forecasted to prevail all week and warmer yet for the upcoming weekend around 70F. When it cools down eventually its going to feel downright chilly. Anglers are finding it an up year for Atlantics and cohos. Guys are getting hook ups daily. Not a lot of steelhead mentioned yet, but still plenty of time with colder weather ahead to bring on some chrome migrations. Brown trout reports still about 50% good/50% slow. Some guys reported a good push of browns yesterday on both the Oak and Sandy. Today seems slower again for some. Those fish are there somewhere and its likely not in the same old downstream water but probably upstream nearer where Kings are concentrated.
Check out the dandy nice big brown below Jonathan Halpert and Big Kev's Guide Service found on the Oak yesterday along with more hook ups.
