Orleans County New York

January 4, 2017
Lake Ontario - Freshwater Fishing Report

Today is Wednesday January 4, 2017.
After a very mild start to 2017, winter begins again this week with temperatures in the 20's for daytime highs.
The rain of the past day or so should keep water levels on the tributaries within Orleans County at very fishable levels for at least the rest of this week.
Ice should start forming rather quickly with the forecasted temperatures so those tributary fishermen should be ever mindful of their surrounding conditions as they could quickly change.
On the "Oak" fishing has been good to very good especially for steelhead and brown trout, with a good number of hook ups being reported each day.
A few Atlantic salmon are still in the mix but their numbers are quickly dwindling as the season progresses.
Some flies being mentioned are stone flies and woolie buggers in various colors.
The other smaller tributaries are running higher and more stained water than the "Oak" but are still offering fair to good fishing conditions.
On the Lower portion of the "Oak" Perch fishing has picked up again especially around the bridges area but you still have to sort thru a lot of smaller ones to have a decent catch.
With the number of smaller Perch being reported, the coming years should offer a great Perch fishery for a few years.
On Lake Alice the warmer weather has weaken what ice there is to a very unsafe state but again with daytime highs only in the 20's it shouldn't take long for those conditions to change for the better.
From Point Breeze on Lake Ontario, the World Fishing Network's Ultimate Fishing Town USA and the rest of Orleans County, Let's make everyday a great fishing day right here in Orleans County.
