Oswego River/Lake Ontario report:

According to Larry Muroski of Larry’s Oswego Salmon Shop:

After having been as low as 800cfs, the water level is up just over 1,000cfs this morning. Dropback steelhead can be found throughout the river taking spoons, stickbaits and nightcrawlers. Look for perch near the lock in Phoenix taking minnows and both Ox Creek in Fulton and Wright’s Landing are producing bullhead.

Lake Ontario report:

The brown trout action continues to be very good in the harbor and near the lighthouse. When conditions are good for lake fishing, look in 5-15 feet of water. Suggested baits are stickbaits and spoons.

Pulaski Area/ Salmon River report:

According to Dave Wood of Woody’s Tackle:

When the wind has not been an issue, anglers are finding a very good brown trout bite along the shoreline. Stickbaits on flat lines and off planer boards along with small spoons in blue and silver and black and silver in 6-20 feet of water have been successful.

According to the Douglaston Salmon Run:

Fishing improved on Tuesday. Our guests reported a slower morning with the bite picking up in the afternoon. Sunset glow beads in 10mm continue to take fish along with pink worms and egg sacks. Large streamers also did very well this afternoon; #6-10 olive wooly buggers were the ticket as reported by our guests. Today the water temperature remained at 39 degrees.

According to Whitaker’s Sport Shop & Motel:

Tuesday was another cold and windy day although not as windy as Monday. Anglers reported getting into fish in the Upper Fly Zone, Ellis Cove, Pineville, Sportsman, RT2A, Papermill, Town Pool and Longbridge/Staircase. We currently have a mix of spawning fish in the gravel areas and dropbacks suspended in the water column and holding in the faster water and head of the deeper holes. Anglers having the most success are covering lots of water.

Oneida Lake report:

Anglers boat fishing on Oneida Lake have been doing well with perch and bluegills using minnows. Big Bay is producing panfish on spikes, wax worms, and hair jigs. Crappies have been active with minnows and spikes good choices of bait.

Sandy Pond report:

According to Dave Wood of Woody’s Tackle:

Perch continue to be active on the pond with fathead minnows the suggested bait. Look for crappies in the channel and around the boat launches and anglers are finding a decent bullhead bite.
