  10. This week's fishing report is from Capt. John Oravec of Tightlines Charters, July 18, 2018. Hello, this is Captain Johnny Oravec, Orleans County veteran fishing guide with some wonderful news about Lake Ontario trout and salmon fishing. Wow! We have calm waters and multiple hot spots teaming with big fish off the Orleans County shoreline! Some fishermen are enjoying Big Brown Trout by trolling small stingers, yecks and super slim spoons over the 50' - 60' ledges from the Ladders all the way to the "Devil's Nose". Keep your spread simple, downrigger wise and make sure a leadcore longline is part of your strategy, ok! The Troutman 2 Tracker and Bucaroo boats have landed some super whopper browns this week right up to the 10 to 15 pound "football" brown trophy class! King Salmon continue to be the wonderfully strong suit off Point Breeze! The fantastic screamin' reel action for 5 - 18 pound average Chinook salmon has stayed consistent right at the 90' - 120' depths...keep your mixed spoon /flasher fly spread down at 45 to 70 ft and Hang On! Tracker Dave reported a near 30 pound king making it one of the top fish out of the big lake so far this season! Click here to see the rest of this report on ILoveNYFishing.com.
  11. This week's fishing report is from Ron Bierstine at Oak Orchard Tackle & Lodge, 4/24/18. (Excuse us for the delay in sending as we were away at a conference this week.) "Nice spring weather is hanging in with warmer temps through the beginning part of this week. Flows in the Oak are hanging in at high with lots of upstream supply. Look for flows to stay up or possibly go higher with overflow water with any significant precipitation. Water color is slowly clearing with about 1 foot + of visibility. "For the last of the consistent steelhead action, the conditions are what they are in the Oak. If, by the time flows will be significantly lower and clearer, look for warmer temps and post spawn or drop backs moving downstream and not so many fresh fish moving upstream. Water temps with the near forecast will be moving through the 50's°F. For now, fishing pressure remains real light with just a handful of guys on the waterway and not a lot of reports back so far this week."

  12. This week's fishing report is from Ron Bierstine at Oak Orchard Tackle & Lodge, 4/17/18: "Thanks to sleet/ice melt-off and significant rain through yesterday, all of the tributary flows are blown high and dirty. Flows in the Oak consist of lots of turbine and overflow water. Thanks to tributary run off and strong winds through today, the near shore Lake Ontario waters are dirty. "Forecast is for cold temps today and slightly warmer temps in the 40's°F for the rest of the week with chance of precipitation Thursday. On the backside of these most recent higher flows, there should still be some steelhead action since there's been no great warm up just yet. There is the chance for some April fresh fish migrations, especially some spirited jack steelhead or even Lake run browns." Click here to see the rest of this report on ILoveNYFishing.com.
  13. Today is Tuesday, April 10, 2018. This week’s fishing report is from Ron Bierstine at Oak Orchard Tackle & Lodge: "Finally some weather this week feeling a little more like spring! Forecast is for warming temps in the 40’s – 50’s°F thru the week with chance of showers on and off. Look for warming water temps and definitely an acceleration of steelhead spawning and spring migrations. "For now, with plenty of previous cold temps and high water, temps in the Oak have not moved much through the 40’s, but look for quickly rising temps through the 40’s and likely into the 50’s°F now sooner then later. By steelhead standards the flows are real nice at slightly high and stained with about 1 – 2 feet of visibility. There’s plenty of water and stain for cover for fish to be any place they want to be in the river. Look for most consistent action downstream of the dam around post spawn dropback spots or gravel where they are spawning. "Fresh fish could arrive to the party at any time and go right to gravel – so action right at the dam may be slowing for steelhead. Some suckers are reported and look for more of those rubber lips going forward. Even a few smallmouth are in the mix now too. "Fishing pressure has been real lite. Today, with a handful of anglers out, most are reporting at least a couple of hook-ups on a morning’s effort. The other area smaller tributaries are hanging on probably to the last of the decent action now and before water temps spike up high on medium and slightly stained flows."

  14. Today is Tuesday, April 3, 2018. This week’s fishing report is from Ron Bierstine at Oak Orchard Tackle & Lodge (published Mon., April 2): "After pretty good rain at the end of last week, we dodged any significant precipitation through the weekend. Night time temps are dropping back into the 20’s°F and that has tightened up the runoff. Flows in the Oak are high and stained with about 1’+ of visibility. For now, flows are slowly on the clear and turbine flows are likely to stay up around high through the week. "No impacts here in WNY from the latest snowstorm on the east coast. Forecast is for clear today (Monday) and showers tomorrow (Tuesday) and temps in the 40’s near 50°F. There will be a chance of more significant rain Tuesday night and then a wind advisory Wednesday. Flows could be quickly back on the rise with overflow water and off color with anymore significant precipitation." Click here to see the rest of this report on ILoveNYFishing.com.
  15. Today is Tuesday, March 27, 2018. This week’s fishing report is from Ron Bierstine at Oak Orchard Tackle & Lodge: "Looks like we are finally getting our warm-up! Forecast thru this week is for high temps in the 40’s or near 50°F. Precipitation is expected today thru tonight and a chance again Thursday. For now, flows in the Oak have dropped back some to between moderate and medium and still mostly clear. Reports today are of further fluctuations thanks to hydro-power operations. With some precipitation thru this mid-week and snow melt south of here, look for soon-to-be rising flows in the Oak with hopefully a return to stained flows."

  16. Today is Tuesday, March 20, 2018. This week’s fishing report is from Ron Bierstine at Oak Orchard Tackle & Lodge: "Happy First Day of Spring! Clear but cold-ish weather is forecast thru the week with highs in the 30’s°F. No impact is expected here from the latest Nor’easter. In fact, with no real snow melt going on lately, its getting kind of dry. There is a chance for a warm up toward this weekend and although right here on the Lake Plains there isn’t much snow, there is some more to the south. Hopefully that will get flows in the Oak back up some when it begins to melt. "Flows in the Oak are moderate and pretty clear, not far off from typical fall time conditions. There were a few more anglers out this past weekend, but over all, the fishing pressure is relatively light. Fish numbers are still pretty good. They are not fresh and dumb anymore so presentations have to be good with generally lighter leads and tippets. A fair amount of fish are still tucked up at the dam with scattered fish spreading downstream." Click here to see the rest of this report on ILoveNYFishing.com.
  17. Today is Tuesday, March 13, 2018. This week’s fishing report is from Ron Bierstine at Oak Orchard Tackle & Lodge: "It looks like the end of the past weekend’s reduction in flows was a temporary thing. For now, flows are back to the pretty nice medium or medium+ level. Water color is pretty clear at 3′ or so of visibility. I cannot say for sure what our friends at the Waterport hydro may do for flows thru this week. With any luck, they should hang in at least and until there may be a rise in flows with the next warm up. Forecast is for low 30’s°F through the week with a chance for snow showers today and maybe a few inches area wide snow Wednesday. "Weekend temps may be in the 40’s°F. Once again no significant impact expected here in WNY from the latest Nor’easter. The past storms haven’t kept the steelhead away for sure but it has probably kept some anglers away. (Remember, take with a grain of salt any downstate or out of state doomsday LESnow forecasts, they’re usually way off base!) "Fishing pressure remains overall pretty light on the Oak Orchard. Float drifters, fly swingers and bottom bouncers have all had their days with hook ups. Is it as easy for hook ups as 2 weeks or so ago when the flows were up and stained and most all the fish were fresh? Probably not, but there’s still plenty of action for good drifts over a days effort. As the flows are now, fresh fish could still trickle in anytime. Most spawning in the Oak seems stalled thanks to colder water temps again. Soon enough more fish will be back on the gravel with warming temps that should also bring in the spring fish and make for warmer water and hotter fish action thru the end of March and beginning of April."

  18. Today is Tuesday, March 6, 2018. This week’s fishing report is from Ron Bierstine at Oak Orchard Tackle & Lodge: Through the weekend and right now, flows in the Oak are medium or maybe just slightly more than medium. There were reports that flows retreated yesterday and that may have just been a temporary thing. Water color is clearing with 2 ft or more of visibility. By steelhead standards, the conditions are real nice for productive drifts and swings up and down the river. Weather has cooled and there’s no great warm up ahead in the immediate forecast. Highs forecast in the 30’s°F or near 40°F with chance of rain or snow showers through this week. No significant accumulations are expected. Fishing pressure is light so far through this week. From earlier warmer weather and higher flows, there was some spawning activity. That may be stalled some now but fish may still be in fast water areas with greater concentrations of fish more upstream than down. Still plenty of fish at the dam that haven’t dropped back looking to stage or spawn yet. Most anglers getting good drifts or swings are into a few or more hook ups in an outing. Hospitable Lake Ontario conditions (warm water temps) may cause some fish to linger before making a later in the season “run.” More fresh fish should be trickling in, especially with the next warm up and/or rise in flows.

  19. This week's fishing report is from Ron Bierstine at Oak Orchard Tackle & Lodge,3/01/18: "Weather forecast has been changeable so far this week. The forecasted storm for tonight and tomorrow is expected to bring more snow then rain. The beginning of the storm is expected for rain south of here and then the overspread on the WNY big Lake Ontario Plain could start as rain or a mix and then go quickly to snow with the chance of a foot or so of wet accumulations thru Friday morning. Temps are forecast highs near 40°F today and then 30ish°F for the weekend and dropping back down below freezing at night. "For now, water levels in the Oak are still on a slow retreat thanks mostly to diminishing overflow levels. Turbine flows are still humping along for something like slightly high to high flows and visibility of 1-2 feet. By springtime standards, that's pretty good for steelhead chances." Click here to see the rest of this report on ILoveNYFishing.com.
  20. Today is Monday, February 26, 2018. This week’s fishing report is from Ron Bierstine at Oak Orchard Tackle & Lodge: "Still plenty of water in the Oak – turbine and overflow levels. Even though we dodged big rain over the past weekend, it was enough to put overflow levels back on the rise a little bit. The Oak is giving up some fresh steelhead. However, hook-ups aren’t necessarily coming in big bunches in the high, stained and cold flows. Water temps are easing into the high 30’s °F now as Lake Alice ice is just about gone. Look for still high turbine flows and likely diminished overflow water thru this week before any new precipitation. Other area smaller tributaries are wide open with fresh fish chances and in some cases water temperatures in the mid 40’s already." Click here to see the rest of this report on ILoveNYFishing.com.
  21. This week's fishing report is from Ron Bierstine at Oak Orchard Tackle & Lodge, 2/21/18: "Flows go up, flows go down, flows go back up... Thanks to rain yesterday with unseasonable warm temps, all the tributary flows are high and dirty and headed shortly probably to blown and dirty. Thanks to last week ending with a couple days of cold temps, flows had actually retreated quicker than anticipated and offered a decent fishable window thru the past weekend on falling and clearing flows. There was some on and off steelhead action and anglers had hook-ups on the smaller tributaries too. "The forecast is for warm temps thru the mid week and another chance for precipitation today. After this week, all the tributary courses' ice should be moved out and probably the ice cover on Lake Alice (aka Waterport Pond). Look for rising tributary water temperatures now, at least in the short term and, if any seasonal cool weather doesn't return." Click here to see the rest of this report on ILoveNYFishing.com.
  22. Today is February 15, 2018. This week’s fishing report is from Ron Bierstine at Oak Orchard Tackle & Lodge, today: "Thanks to warm temperatures yesterday and today melting snow, all the tributary flows are on the rise. Forecast is for above freezing temperatures thru tonight and some tomorrow with the chance for rain or showers later Friday. The weekend’s forecast is seasonal around 30° F and then another warm up next week. For now, flows in the Oak are slightly high with still mostly clear water color of 3 feet of visibility. Flows consist of just turbine water. Flows are likely to stay up and get dirtier or go higher by turbine flows and/or overflow especially by next week if the forecast is realized. Anglers are on the Oak today with good fishing conditions with reports of hook-ups on the cusp of the rising flows." Click here to see the rest of this report on ILoveNYFishing.com.
  23. This report was written on Saturday, February 3, 2018. This week’s fishing report is from Ron Bierstine at Oak Orchard Tackle & Lodge, today: "Temps have been fluctuating… Warm with some melting snow last Wednesday and Thursday and then cold Friday. The weekend forecast was seasonable – around 30°F with some snow showers, with Wintry weather forecast after that. See forecast below. "Flows in the Oak are hanging in about medium with 2 – 3′ of visibility. Easier drifting conditions than a week or so ago when flows were higher and dirtier. Guys are into some steelhead, a mix of older and fresher fish with an occasional bigger one thrown in." Click here to see the rest of this report on ILoveNYFishing.com.
  24. This week's fishing report is from Ron Bierstine at Oak Orchard Tackle & Lodge, 1/31/18: "Something like 6 - 8 inches of light snow accumulated from yesterday and today. Seasonal temps are in the forecast today and a little warmer tomorrow with colder temps forecast after that. Flows in the Oak are down, real close to medium now or just slightly greater. Should be a good opportunity to get nice drifts in now thru most of the river and the spots where previously the flows were pretty heavy. Visibility is about 2+ feet. With cold weather hanging in, flows could go lower and clearer. "Downstream slow water could be headed back to frozen with any prolonged cold weather. A few guys out now having little better chances at hook-ups in the medium flows. Some small to medium size steelhead are reported. The other smaller tributaries are retreating quicker with moderate to medium flows and going toward clear. Those flows will continue to retreat with cold weather and some spots are already icing back in." Click here to follow Ron's report that he updates several times per week.

  25. Today is Wednesday, January 24, 2018. This week’s fishing report is from Ron Bierstine at Oak Orchard Tackle & Lodge, Mon., 1/22/18: "All of the area tributary flows are on the rise from a couple days of warm temps. The warm temps have caused more snow melt whereby most of the area’s snow pack and piles have gone away, except for protected woods. "Smaller tributaries are high and dirty now and with any future blown flows, they should pretty much open up completely from any ice and debris. Look for flows on the Oak to be similarly on the rise with the chance for some overflow and dirtier water color thru about the mid part of this week if all the forecasted precipitation is realized. Fishermen are out now finding fishable conditions and were out thru the past weekend. Steelhead action is on and off, not too hot and heavy, most guys getting a few hook-ups thru a day’s effort."
