orleans Orleans County Fishing Report for March 6, 2018

Recommended Posts

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.
