Oswego River report:
According to Larry Muroski of Larry’s Oswego Salmon Shop:
The water flow has been a bit more steady the last few days with levels running from 1,000-2,500cfs. This morning it is flowing at 1,990cfs however it spiked to 4500cfs early this afternoon. Little rain is expected this week with temperatures slowly rising to near 60 degrees on the weekend. Plenty of steelhead along with some rainbows and browns can be found throughout the river. The same bait is working well including egg sacs, crazy eggs, beads, and estaz flies. Just a note that there is no access to Leto’s Island from the eastside.
Salmon River report:
According to Woody’s Tackle:
The trout fishing in the river has been very good with plenty of steelhead and some nice browns mixed in. Anglers are finding activity throughout the river. The same applications are working well – float fishing with eggs, beads and nightcrawlers suggested baits. Anglers are also finding some action in the area streams.
According to Garrett Brancy of Douglaston Salmon Run:
Over the weekend steelhead fishing was very good and decent numbers of browns were also reported to be caught. Yesterday steelhead fishing started off slow and got better as the day went on. Egg sacs have been the bait of choice especially when fish are a bit more lethargic. Orange bellied stone flies #4-8 and black and blue bunny leaches #4-6 have produced good results for our fly fishing guests. Expect the morning bite to be a bit slow again as overnight temperatures drop to the mid 20’s. The water release continues to be 335cfs through tonight.
Oneida Lake report:
Mother Nature has played a part in the fishing on Oneida Lake this fall with a good deal of wind. The nighttime bite for walleye has been slow with an abundance of natural bait keeping them in deeper water. When you can access the lake, the deeper water fishing has been very good for walleye and perch.
Sandy Pond report:
According to Dave Wood of Woody’s Tackle:
Things are quiet on the pond at this time.
