Fishing Reports for December 14, 2012

Fishing Reports for December 14, 2012

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

Oswego River report:

According to Larry’s Oswego Salmon Shop:

The water flow has been running between 6,000-12,000cfs for the last week or so.  This morning it is just over 9,000cfs. Some fresh fish including steelhead, nice size browns and some beautiful rainbows are being reported. Beads are working very well with some being taken on egg sacs as well. Driftboats are working the higher water with some great action being reported.

Salmon River report:

According to Dave Wood of Woody’s Tackle:

The steelhead fishing in the river has been very, very good this week. Anglers upriver reported some good action Thursday morning in the Pineville to Altmar area.  The increased water level will move the fish around and likely bring in some fresh ones. Flies and eggs are working well but it’s likely your favorite bait will work with the number of fish we have.

According to Whitaker’s Sport Shop & Motel:

On Thursday we had a few more anglers around taking advantage of the nice weather. Those we spoke with who fished the lower end of the river reported getting into some fresh chrome. Those who fished the mid to upper end of the river reported some action as well. Applications have remained the same with egg patterns, nymphs, blue egg sacs and trout beads suggested bait.

Oneida Lake report:

Anglers are enjoying this weather for mid December fishing on the lake. Both perch and walleye are being taken in deeper water toward the eastern end of the lake especially off Lewis Point. Fathead minnows and worms are working well. Reports are indicating that the nighttime walleye bite has been more active.

Sandy Pond report:

According to Dave Wood of Woody’s Tackle:

Things are quiet on the pond as we wait for colder temperatures to arrive.
