  1. 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.
  2. 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."

  3. 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.

  4. 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."

  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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. From Point Breeze on Lake Ontario, the World Fishing Network's Ultimate Fishing Town USA and the rest of Orleans County, let's make every day a great fishing day right here in Orleans County! Sincerely, The Team at Orleans County Tourism
  10. 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."

  11. Today is January 17, 2018 and a belated Happy New Year! We are excited with new changes for 2018 with the addition of a full-time Tourism Director, Dawn Borchert. Lynne Menz will continue as the Tourism Coordinator and be responsible for ad designs and community liaison. Mike Waterhouse, our Sportfishing Coordinator, is semi-retired and only handling trade shows and no longer writing this report. So, please bare with us as we navigate our new roles! This week’s fishing report is from Ron Bierstine at Oak Orchard Tackle & Lodge: "Thanks to the return of cold and snow – flows in the Oak are back down to just turbine water at something like slightly high and stained. Overflow levels are diminished. Flows are likely to continue to drop back toward med thru the week with about 1 – 2 feet of viz. Forecast is for continued cold weather and then a warm up toward the weekend and next week. The area has a new 1/2 foot or so of snow on the ground. "Flows in the Oak are open to fish, just some bank ice and snow to deal with. Fishing pressure is pretty light, most guys at the dam report some fresh steelhead hook-ups. There’s plenty of stained water to hide steelhead anywhere they want to be more or less in the rivercourse right now and the higher and dirtier flows now toward Jan and Feb are often when some big chromers show up." From Point Breeze on Lake Ontario, the World Fishing Network’s Ultimate Fishing Town USA and the rest of Orleans County, let’s make every day a great fishing day right here in Orleans County.
  12. Today is Tuesday, December 26, 2017. The winter season is now in full swing with us having a very white Christmas. Temperatures will dip into the teens during the day and single digits at night. The Erie Canal crews have completed their work and also the dewatering process, which gave some of our tributaries an extra boost of water for the tributary season. Both brown trout and rainbow/steelhead trout are heading toward the deeper pools and areas of open waters. Although fishing pressure is on the light side there are still plenty of good fishing opportunities available. Please remember that icing conditions can deteriorate very quickly this time of year so be mindful of your surrounding conditions. The new year will also bring a new season for sports shows and a very busy season is in the works with 6 shows in the plan for 2018. The end of this year will also bring the end of my time as Sportfishing Coordinator Of Orleans County. It has been my extreme pleasure to serve in this position for the last 12 years but it has also become time to move on and enjoy retirement with all of the new opportunities that it has to offer. I only hope that each and everyone of you will continue all of the great fishing opportunities that Lake Ontario and its tributaries within Orleans County have to offer. 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.
  13. Today is Tuesday, December 19, 2017. The Erie Canal is in the process of being dewatered again which is providing good water flows in many of the tributaries within Orleans County. On the “Oak” there are still some salmon available for the right offering, mainly at the dam. Brown trout and steelhead/rainbow trout are on the move with good waterflows. The warmer temperatures of the past day or two have helped clear some of the snow and shore ice, providing some extra water flow. Temperatures will continue their rollercoaster ride through this coming weekend but then return to more seasonal levels as winter will finally be upon us. This is the time of year that taking a few extra minutes to review safety precautions and paying more attention to your surrounding conditions is of the utmost importance. Conditions can change quickly this time of year. This is the last fishing report before Christmas so let me take this opportunity to wish each and every one of you the happiest and safest of holidays, and a bright new year in 2018. 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.
  14. Today is Tuesday, December 12, 2017. Well the crews must have finished their work on the Erie Canal because the canal has been refilled to check the repairs. Once everything passes inspection the system should be dewatered again for the winter. For the tributaries within Orleans County this means added water flow until possibly the end of December this year. Right now, water levels are good to very good with 2 feet or better visibility. Fish are spread throughout the tributary system and decent numbers of both brown trout and steelhead/rainbow trout are being reported. On the lower stretches of the “Oak” perch fishing has been fairly consistent. Interestingly perch caught at the Point has Gobies in them and perch caught farther up stream had items in them colored orange. Finally, with winter starting on December 22nd, this means that the white stuff that is on the ground now is just leaves that have turned from red to orange to yellow to brown and finally to white. 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.
  15. Today is Tuesday, December 5, 2017. Well it looks like the vacation from winter like weather may be over with rain and snow in the forecast over the next week or two. With the on and off rain today, tributary levels and clarity of the tributaries within Orleans County should remain at slightly high to high levels and visibility should stay at around 2 feet. Decent catches of both brown trout and steelhead/rainbow trout are being reported along with an occasional late run salmon thrown into the mix. Fly patterns remain with stone flies in black, brown or green, Woolie buggers. egg sucking leeches and egg pattern flies. Live baits being mentioned are wax worms, spikes and good old night crawlers. Things seem to be quiet on the lower stretches of the “Oak” but on Lake Alice catches of most of the species are being reported. The Erie Canal is still partially watered while crews work on some areas that could be a problem if not attended to. From Point Breeze on Lake Ontario, the World Fishing Network’s Ultimate Fishing Town USA and the rest of Orleans County, let’s make every day a great fishing day right here in Orleans County.
  16. Today is Tuesday, November 28, 2017. Mild and pleasant weather conditions continue for our area well into the next week or so with just a slight chance of rain. Fishing conditions on all of the tributaries within Orleans County are very good to great with good numbers of fish spread throughout all of the systems. There are still some fresh salmon entering our waters which is a bit unusual for this time of year. Water levels remain just slightly high with about 2 feet of visibility on most of the tributaries. The Erie Canal is only partially dewatered while crews continue to work on the system. When they have completed their work the canal should be filled again to check their work and then the final dewatering will be done. What this means for out tributaries is extra water well into December this year. I haven’t had any reports on the lower section of the “Oak” or on Lake Alice but December 1st is right around the corner which means to close of Bass season for keeping them and the opening of catch and release season. 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.
  17. Today is Tuesday, November 21, 2017. Milder weather seems to be the rule over the next week or two with only a slight chance of snow in the forecast. Although this is a great forecast for tributary fishermen, I'm sure that the hunters would prefer to have at least some snow to help with tracking their game. All of the tributaries within Orleans County are offering very fishable conditions for brown trout, steelhead/rainbow trout and even some fresh salmon yet. On the lower stretches of the "Oak", Perch fishing has slowed a bit, Northern pike are spotty and bass are still fairly active. Speaking of bass, the season ends November 30th so as of December 1st it's catch and release until the 3rd Saturday of June next year. On Lake Alice fishing for all of the species has slowed slightly. The Erie Canal has been partially de-watered but from what I have been told, will be refilled to check on some work that is being done. This means that when they do the final dewatering for the year, it will provide water for our tributaries well into December this year. I hope that you all have a happy and safe Thanksgiving this year. 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.
  18. Orleans County Fishing Report for November 7, 2017 Today is Tuesday, November 7, 2017. More seasonal weather has finally arrived along with an abundance of rain. Here in Western New York we are well on the way to setting new records for the amount of precipitation in 2017. Let’s start with the lower stretches of the “Oak.” Perch fishing is good to very good, Bass are active and Northern pike are being caught occasionally. On the upper stretches of the “Oak” it’s brown trout time. Brown trout in the upper teens are being caught and numbers are very good. Fresh salmon are still entering the system along with the very start of the steelhead/rainbow trout run. Water levels on all of the tributaries within Orleans County are slightly high to high and with all of the rain we have experienced over the past few days should go higher and go from stained to muddy for a day or two. On Lake Alice some crappie are starting to show up and bass fishing remains as good as ever. Please remember that this coming weekend will be the last weekend for the Archers Club to be serving meals. Speaking of the Archers Club here are the winners of their Catch and Release Derby. In the Adult division Mia Stone had a 26.555 pound salmon, Nat Smith had a 11.115 Pound brown trout and Paul Davidson had a 6.12 pound steelhead. In the Youth Division Ben Smith had a 16.630 Pound salmon. Next year’s Archers Club Catch and Release Fly Fishing Derby will be held on October 17, 18, and 19, 2018. 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.
  19. Orleans County Fishing Report for October 31, 2017 Today is Tuesday, October 31, 2017. This Halloween the trick is to make the perfect cast with that special fly to that very special spot and catch that ever elusive fish you have been dreaming about for years. This fall has been an absolute bonus year for both Lake Ontario and the tributaries of Orleans County. Those with small boats are still doing well in the near shore waters of Lake Ontario while all of our tributaries within Orleans County are alive and producing an abundance of the cold-water species. Salmon are still entering the tributaries from the lake in good numbers and the brown trout and rainbow/steelhead trout are starting to really pick up in numbers. With temperatures falling to more seasonal levels and water flows at excellent levels, great fishing is in the forecast well into the future this year. The Erie Canal has yet to start their dewatering process so good water flows should continue well into the winter months. On the lower stretches of the "Oak" Perch fishing has been good and reports have an occasional Northern Pike being taken along with a bass or two in the mix. On Lake Alice it's been mostly bass in the upper stretches. I haven't had any reports from the Erie Canal but I have to believe that at least bass are still active. From Point Breeze on Lake Ontario, the World Fishing Network's Ultimate Fishing Town USA and the rest of Orleans County, let's make every day a great fishing day right here in Orleans County.
  20. Orleans County Fishing Report for October 24, 2017 Today is Tuesday, October 24, 2017. The temperature yo-yo continues with the temperatures looking more like late September than late October. Runs of all of the cold-water species are on again and off again on all of the tributaries within Orleans County. That's not to say that there is any shortage of any of the cold-water species in our tributaries, they are not the bigger runs that one would normally see this time of year. Temperatures will be above average into late next week and beyond. What this means to me and others is that the tributary season will be extended this year and that is great news. Another positive part of this whole weather thing is that people with boats still in the water have been having great success in the near shore waters of Lake Ontario off Orleans County. All of the inland streams and lakes have been fairly quiet right now but bass fishing is still doing well, especially on the upper reaches of Lake Alice. Please don't forget that bass season closes on November 3oth this year so bass catch and release starts on December 1st. Perch are being caught on the lower Stretches of the "Oak". The Catch and Release Fly Fishing Derby at the St. Mary's Archers Club was once again a great success with some fantastic fish being weighed in, some great food being served, some great prizes being awarded and some great new friends being made. From Point Breeze on Lake Ontario, the World Fishing Network's Ultimate Fishing Town USA and the rest of Orleans County, let's make every day a great fishing day right here in Orleans County.
  21. Orleans County Fishing Report for October 17, 2017 Today is Tuesday October 17, 2017. The cool down of last night brought frost to some areas but not the nearby shoreline of Lake Ontario. Temperatures will be back up into the 60s and 70s for the rest of the week with no rain in sight. There are salmon all through the “Oak”, Johnson Creek, Marsh Creek and Sandy Creek but they are spotty due to the fact that they are spread out so much. Water conditions on all of the tributaries within Orleans County are slowing slightly and clearing, but still very fishable. Click here to see the rest of this report on ILoveNYFishing.com.
  22. Orleans County Fishing Report for October 10, 2017 Today is Tuesday, October 10, 2017. This is the time of year that the crispness in the air and the changing of the leaves begs us to get outside and enjoy the wonders that Mother Nature is providing us with. With the amount of rain we have received over the past several days, flows on all of the tributaries within Orleans County are at a slightly high level and slightly stained water clarity. Salmon are being reported in all our tributaries and the water flows are keeping them on the move and spread out and brown trout are starting to enter the tributaries. When the weather cooperates, fish are still being taken in Lake Ontario especially in those close to shore waters. On the lower stretches of the "Oak" perch are starting to show up in some decent numbers from the County Marine Park to the bridges area. The upper stretches of Lake Alice are still producing some nice bass, mostly smallmouth, but Bluegill and Crappie fishing has dropped off a bit. The Archers Club Catch and Release Fly Fishing Derby will be held on October 18th, 19th and 20th this year, which is always a great event. Tomorrow will be the last day of operation for the Erie Canal System but will not signal the beginning of the dewatering procedure. There is work to be done on the canal so water will remain in the system for awhile yet. From Point Breeze on Lake Ontario, the World Fishing Network's Ultimate Fishing Town USA and the rest of Orleans County, let's make every day a great fishing day right here in Orleans County.
  23. Orleans County Fishing Report for October 3, 2017 Today is Tuesday, October 3, 2017. With temperatures warming back up again the migration of fish up our tributaries has slowed just a bit. There are a good number of salmon at the dam and at the Archers Club but not as good as it is likely to get. Reports have brown trout, steelhead/rainbow trout and even Atlantic salmon being caught in the deeper holes around the Archers Club area. However late last week a 13-pound brown trout was caught at the Archers Club. Could this be the sign of things to come? There are fish being taken at the jetties and from small boats right along the shoreline but just in the early morning and late evening time periods. The “Oak” is still producing perch, bass and an occasional pike. The Erie Canal still has good water flow and good fishing but will close to traffic on October 11th this year. The good news is that dewatering will not take place until either late October or early November. Then it will be a partial dewatering followed by a partial refilling to check the work being done. The Archers Club Catch and Release Fly Fishing Derby will be held on October 18th, 19th and 20th this year, which is always a great event. The water flow at the Archers Club is the very best that I’ve seen in many years which should lead to some of the very best fishing seen in a long time. And yet from Lake Ontario they are still doing well on trout and salmon in the 100 to150 feet of water range. It just keeps getting better and 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.
  24. Orleans County Fishing Report for September 26, 2017 Today is Tuesday September 26, 2017. Where have these summerlike temperatures been all summer? Trout and salmon are moving back out into the lake from their near-shore haunts and lake fishing is fantastic right now. Fishing in the 50 to 200 feet of water range is producing some great catches of a mixed bag of fish. When this warm-up started a few salmon scooted to the dam on Oak Orchard but by far the majority went back to the lake. This has been like a bonus season for those who still have their boats in the water and this is after an already bonus season. Click here to view the rest of this report on ILoveNYFishing.com.
  25. Orleans County Fishing Report for September 19, 2017 Today is Tuesday, September 19, 2017. Well it looks like we are in for another long stretch of pleasant summerlike weather conditions. This should slow down the migration of trout and salmon towards their spawning grounds just a bit. Early morning and late evening fishing from the pier heads have been fairly productive as has been trolling the "wall" at those times. There are still a good number of fish and bait in the 70 to 200 feet of water range for those who still have boats in the water. Click here to see the rest of this report on ILoveNYFishing.com.
