Fishing Reports for November 20, 2012

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

Our staff wishes you and your family a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!

 Oswego River report:

According to Larry’s Oswego Salmon Shop:

The water flow was running between 2,000-3,000cfs for much of the last few days. This afternoon it is flowing at 1,730cfs. This weather pattern is expected to hold through the Thanksgiving holiday with some precipitation and colder temperatures moving in by Saturday. Anglers have been enjoying the weather and a good trout bite. Some nice steelhead, big browns and a few rainbows have been reported. Driftboat anglers are doing well in spite of some low water conditions. Egg sacs, beads and estaz flies are working well. Just a note that there is no access to Leto’s Island from the eastside.

Salmon River report:

Anglers are reporting the fishing has been a bit up and down on the river. There has been decent action but on some days you work a little harder. The water level is running at 335cfs and will likely remain there with no precipitation expected in the next few days. Suggested baits are egg sacs, trout beads and egg sucking leeches.

 According to Garrett Brancy of Douglaston Salmon Run:

Our guests over the weekend reported working for their catch. Covering lots of water and sticking with the basics were the key. I have found sticking with one or two patterns that have proven themselves in the past and covering ground produces better results than staying in one location and going through the entire fly box. This past weekend nest eggs and glo-bugs #8-12 in apricot and peach produced strikes for fly fishermen. Pink and white egg sacs along with 10 and 8mm ontari-roe beads took fish for our spin and center-pin anglers.

  Oneida Lake report:

The walleye bite reportedly has been a bit better. Deeper water has been productive near buoy 115. Perch have been taking minnows in the Big Bay area and near Cleveland. Yellow perch are active in 12-30 feet of water with worms and minnows working well. The nighttime walleye bite has been spotty.

 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.

Tales From the Netherlands: Montreal’s Mystery is revealed at last

While progressive rock may stand as a bad word in some sectors of the sonic world, the Dutch have always harbored a special affinity for this extended and cerebral brand of music. So it comes as no surprise that the stars aligned themselves perfectly on May 10, 2013, when Montreal based prog-rock band Mystery took to the stage of the Boerderij Cultuurpodium in Zoetermeer, Netherlands. The end result is the group’s first-ever live release, Tales from the Netherlands, an astounding ride through the band’s recent catalogue that could also serve as the perfect jumping on point for the uninitiated.
