Orleans County (New York) Fishing Report – February 2, 2022

“I’m just returning from the Fly Fishing Show in Edison, N.J., so will need to come back up to speed on fishing info as some angler reports come in. Fishing pressure, no doubt, is light though.

“The northeast coastal weather put a damper on show attendance and the vendors participating were down some thanks to Covid worry but the anglers who did visit the show had good interest in all of the Lake Ontario trout and salmon fishing opportunities. At least it’s good to see organizers and attendees’ efforts at getting back to a normal pre-Covid scene.

“Here on the Oak, look for low and clear flows with bank ice and the downstream slow water areas frozen. Most hook up chances will come from long and light float presentations at the dam. Other area smaller waterways will be snowed and frozen in. Agreeable temps are expected today (Tuesday) and tomorrow (Wednesday) with a forecasted snow storm expected Thursday. There’s a chance for more significant accumulations which could bring area totals to 2 – 3 ft of snow. We are surely going to have water for high and off color flows when the weather breaks toward spring. We’ll just have to wait and see if it’ll be a hard and fast melt or something a little more moderate and gradual.”
