Ron Bierstine reports. Thru the past weekend the area received only about another inch of snow. Lots of snow on the ground for future flows when things warm up. Forecast is for seasonal cold temps start of the week and milder in the low 30’s F for mid week with the chance of mixed precipitation or rain. There is the chance this week for a change in some kind of higher flows up from the low flows we have had in the Oak Orchard. Weather conditions and run off or just future supply could cause hydro managers to begin to bump flows up.
So far just a handful of guys out scoring a few rehab browns and a steelhead or two mainly at the dam. A change in flows that begins to open up all of the Oak Orchard could bring on some fresh fish action. The other area smaller tribs are well frozen in and will require a prolonged and significant warm-up to open up to fishable conditions. Anglers are advised to use caution when wading or navigating stream banks for changes in flow and possible ice moving downstream.
