orleans Orleans County Fishing Report for October 15, 2019: Kings, Atlantics, Brown Trout, Steelhead and More

Recommended Posts

This report is by Ron Bierstine from Oak Orchard Tackle & Lodge on Tuesday, October 15, 2019:


It looks like fishing pressure has backed off some now after there were a few more anglers out this past holiday weekend.  There is still a fair amount of folks at the dam.  Forecast ahead looks seasonably cool with a chance of rain Wednesday and Thursday - a half inch or more of precipitation.  Any significant precipitation would be a good thing to possibly bump up tributary flows and encourage salmon migrations.  For now, the Kings continue a slow roll migration with still most all fish in good shape and only some fish actually spawning.  Over the past weekend anglers did report seeing some Kings moving through fast water areas in the early morning or later evening time frame.  Still no prolonged marching like an all day movement noted.  Majority behavior has been steaming up to or near the dam.  Flows in the Oak are low to moderate and clear.  Any rise in flows and some color to the water would make for better hook-up chances.  The believed scattered Kings out in Lake Ontario are still passing through the River mouth and casters intercepted some of those fish even this past weekend.  Patient skein drifters report seeing a few fish crashing in the lower frog water areas on the Oak and some bobber downs.  The early browns and steelhead and Atlantics reported are not surprisingly mixed up with the majority of the salmon nearer the dam or just downstream.
