Orleans County Fishing Report 10/26/21

Orleans County Tourism
October 27, 2021
Oak Orchard Creek - Freshwater Fishing Report

More rain thru yesterday (Mon) and today (Tues) with continued cooler weather. Forecast is for rain ending later today and a couple days of clearing for mid week. All the trib flows are on the rise and going off color. Rain has been slow and steady so look for smaller area trib flows to go high and dirty probably stopping short of blown. This latest rain has come uncharacteristically from the east so to the west may be in slightly better shape then to the east. Smaller area tribs should crest about mid week and then be on the retreat for end of week. Look for good drift opportunities on the backside of the higher flows with the chance for fresh trout migrations and Kings to be well spread thru the water courses.
Guys in the Oak early today still fishing what's been the medium ish flows and slightly stained, but flows likely headed toward high and stained if not later today then by tomorrow. Good chance that flows can be contained in the turbine channel so look for a good head of turbine water. Flows likely to remain up and stained at least thru the weekend. Thru this beginning part of the week, most hook up action has still been mostly for Kings. Action reported pretty good around the Archers Club yesterday and then slower today. Maybe those fish pushed further upriver as so far there's not been a lot of holding or spawning action except for the piling up at the dam.
For the Oak, this latest spate of water should bring on the bulk of the King action with some spawning underway no doubt under the cover of the higher and dirtier water flows. Guys have so far caught a few browns and a few steelhead and a few cohos and a few Atlantics. This latest rise in flows and continued cool down should kick off better brown trout migrations in the Oak setting up good drifting chances into November and maybe into December with reasonable weather hanging in. We, for sure, have the water flows for now! Canal water flow managers are likely throttling back any additional Canal releases into the tribs thanks to all the precipitation. Fishing pressure fairly heavy thru the past weekend and even thru yesterday but for this mid week period now with wetter weather looks quite a bit less."

Target Species:

Salmon, Steelhead, Brown Trout
