Orleans County Fishing Report 10/5/21

Oak Orchard Creek - Freshwater Fishing Report

All the trib flows are up just a bit from the latest rain thru yesterday. Not a blow-out but enough precipitation to bump everything up with a nice spate of water for some fresh fish migrations. Flows in the Oak are slightly high and slightly stained with a good head of water contained in the turbine channel. Still no real cool down afoot and the forecast ahead thru the weekend and maybe some of next week looks warm. Next chance at precipitation or showers is this weekend. Anglers on the Oak reported small pods of Kings on the move thru the fast water areas yesterday. Not surprising since it was a real gloomy overcast wet kind of day that you would expect good fish movement. Not a lot of fish reported holding, still on that early run kamikaze mission to the dam. Look for Kings steaming thru the downstream fast water to the dam, from the frog water areas thru the fast water, from the lower river to the frogwater, and from the near shore big Lake O waters to the rivermouth/lower river. Be there to intercept them! Certain days you'll notice that salmon movement by seeing them crashing around, but as often as not that movement seems to go on quietly. Also a few more brown trout hook ups have been reported, but its plenty earlier for that with lots of good trout action ahead of us.

There's some brisk NE lakeshore winds that will make for some rough seas and cool and probably dirty water color. That could push more fish into the river plume and into the channel. Before things got too blown up yesterday guys reported some AM pier action. The other area smaller tribs should be going from mod/med flows to slightly stained med/slightly high flows. Flows should be back on the retreat already today with some stain hanging on. Scattered fish movement reported, that hoped for cool down would likely encourage more smaller trib movement.
