Fishing Reports for April 3, 2014

This report courtesy of the Oswego County Department of Community Development, Tourism and Planning.

Oswego River report:
According to Larry Muroski of Larry’s Oswego Salmon Shop:
The water level has remained consistently high running around 20,000cfs this week. This morning it is 19,800cfs. This makes most areas along the river unfishable. Behind the hotels would be a spot to try. Bullhead have been hitting at night near Wright’s Landing. The bridge to Leto Island is closed, and there are Mandatory Personal Flotation Device (PFD) zones on the Oswego River below the Varick Dam. For more information, view the Oswego County Tourism web site at www.visitoswegocounty.com and look for the fishing report under fishing and hunting.

Pulaski area/Salmon River report:
According to Garrett Brancy of the Douglaston Salmon Run:
Yesterday was a beautiful day here in central New York. Winter finally seems to be relinquishing its icy grip. Our guests were definitely enjoying the sunshine though they shared mixed fishing reports with us. Some did quite well while others said they struggled for a bite. Eggs or egg patterns were the most reliable but a few fish were also taken on marabou muddlers in copper or olive. Today is another bright sunny day and the water release remains at 1,200cfs through tonight.

According to Whitaker’s Sport Shop and Motel:
There is no question that the water level is high but as of right now the river is fishable and anglers are fising both from the bank and driftboats. The majority of bank anglers are fishing the upper end of the river between Altmar and Pineville. The opening of the Upper Fly Zone has helped take some of the fishing pressure off the Lower Fly Zone. The driftboats have been taking advantage of the high water and drifting the whole river from top to bottom.

Oneida Lake report:
With temperatures reaching 50°, the ice is deteriorating particularly along the shoreline. Although there is still ice on the lake, cracks and gas pockets are very prominent and conditions are deteriorating. With the warmer temperatures, open water fishing should be coming before too long. Please be patient and stay safe.

Sandy Pond report:
According to Dave Wood of Woody’s Tackle:
Although we have had some warmer temperatures, there is still ice on the pond and anglers have been out on the pond. The Green Point access has been closed and anglers are urged to use caution if you venture out as conditions can change day to day. Minnows, spikes and grubs are taking perch with a decent bite being reported.
