Oak Orchard/Orleans Fishing Report 10/5/16

Mike Waterhouse

Today is Wednesday October 5, 2016.
The cooler temperatures of the past few days have the salmon population slowly moving towards their spawning grounds.
The biggest concentration of salmon on the "Oak" seems to be by the deep hole at the bridges area.
Later this week we should be experiencing even more of a cool down which should speed up the pre-spawn movement.
Water levels on all of the tributaries within Orleans County are at slightly below levels to low levels for this time of year.
With no great amount of precipitation in the near future these levels should remain.
On Lake Alice Bluegills are still being taken by the Waterport Bridge and now some Crappie are starting to show up.
Bass are becoming more active and should increase in activity as temperatures cool down.
Don't lose out on some great fishing, food, friends and prizes at the St. Mary's Archer's Club Catch and Release Derby which will be held on October 19th to the 21st this year.
It is truly one of the great events of the fall fishing 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.
