CARLTON – No school and a day off from work for many people has people outdoors enjoying an unseasonably warm day with lots of sunshine on Columbus Day.

The top photo shows Gene Warner of Ohio getting his hook ready while fishing in the Oak Orchard River. He and five other friends made the trip to Orleans County to try to reel in salmon and trout.

Warner and two of his friends set up where there used to be a small bridge crossing the Oak Orchard River.

This photo, taken from Route 98 past Narby’s, is looking at the two remaining bridges at “The Bridges.”

These folks are out in a boat near the Route 18 bridge over the Oak Orchard.

After a day in the 70s today, the high temperatures will fall to 60 on Tuesday followed by 51 on Wednesday, 55 on Thursday and 52 on Friday, according to the National Weather Service in Buffalo.
