Oak Orchard Creek - Freshwater Fishing Report

The weather it is a changing… A cool day today with winds NE off the Lake. Forecast ahead is for a mid week warmup with chance of rain or showers end of week and then sharply cooler for the weekend. The full moon that was maybe responsible for the uptick in migrations just recently is now on the wane. Chance of some Lake Effect Snow this weekend with any accumulations expected south of here off Lake Erie.

On the Oak guys are getting brown trout hook ups each day with that action seeming to heat up as the fresh salmon action begins to cool down. There are still Kings around, about in a one qtr green fish to three qtr old moldy ratio. Since its still busy with plenty of Kings around, anglers need to carefully spot the places where the browns are shadowing the Kings. Once pressured, browns may move a little distance from the tails of the salmon but they will still likely be in the closest broken water downstream. And along with the browns there's the chance for Atlantics, cohos or steelhead rounding out nice mixed bag chances. Brown trout on an average are on the smaller side this year with a bigger one here and there mixed in.
Expect daily water level fluctuations this time of the year because of leaf fall and wind. Flows are mod or almost med and mostly clear. Fishing pressure most days pretty agreeable with salmon anglers falling out of the mix now and only mod numbers of guys pursuing brown trout so far. Not sure if we are even going to see the typical influx of trout guys – those crowds are already tardy not unlike the trout and salmon migrations. Some anglers are spread out like in the other tribs east and west. With fair to good bolstered flows from the Erie Canal guys are reporting good brown trout action with a green King here and there and/or a sporty colorful coho.

Target Species:

Salmon, Steelhead, Brown Trout
