Fishing Reports for April 13, 2010


This report a courtesy of Oswego County Department of Community Development, Tourism and Planning.
The following notice has been posted for Lake Ontario waters:
Remember the area around the Nine Mile Point Nuclear Facility is off limits to boating. The restricted area stretches 1,000 yards offshore and extends from the Alcan plant to the Sunset Bay area along Lake Ontario, east of the city of Oswego.
Oswego River/Lake Ontario report:
Oswego River report:
According to Larry Muroski of Larry’s Oswego Salmon Shop:
The water level continues to drop running at 3,020cfs as of Monday morning. Brown trout, steelhead and a few rainbows are active throughout the river. Anglers are fishing at the dam, off the wall, behind the hotels and areas in between. Suggested baits are beads, stickbaits, worms, minnows, egg sacs, woolly buggers, pink worms and nightcrawlers. Look for bullhead at Wright’s Landing taking leeches. Ox Creek is also producing bullhead on nightcrawlers and leeches and perch can be found at the locks in Phoenix with minnows and grubs.
Mexico Bay report:
According to Capt. Gerry Bresadola of B&B Sportfishing Charters:
Slowly but surely the 2010 season begins to unfold. While only a sparse few anglers have started the brown trout quest, early birds are catching a few. As in years past shallow depths trolled near shore runoffs, (if you can find any) are producing decent action. Right now traditional presentations such as Smithwicks, Rapalas, and spoons like Stingers and Dreamweavers are acceptable offerings. Please keep in mind that the water is really low, so a 2009 trolling route may find you hitting or snagging the bottom in 2010. Be careful out there guys and gals!
Salmon River/Pulaski Area report:
According to Whitaker’s Sport Shop & Motel:
With the low water and nice weather the fishing pressure has increased. The upper section of river between Altmar and Pineville is getting the most fishing pressure. Anglers having the most success are getting on the water early and covering lots of water. The gravel areas in the Upper and Lower Fly Fishing Area, Frazier’s Run, Ellis Cove, Bovines and Refrigerator have produced action on a daily basis. With the low water the drop backs have been holding in the heads of the deeper pools. The Schoolhouse Pool, Trestle Pool, Sportsman Pool, Papermill, Town Pool, and the Black Hole have all produced action on a daily basis.
According to the Douglaston Salmon Run:
The colder temperatures at night are helping to keep the water temperature stable. Even without a lot of run off, the steelhead are dropping back slowly. If this continues we should see fish on the DSR until mid May. The Atlantic phenomenon continues this week! We are seeing more Atlantics in the last few days than I have seen in entire seasons! How nice would it be to see a run of these beautiful fish in the not so distant future?
According to Dave Wood of Woody’s Tackle:
Bullhead action continues to be good in the estuary of the Salmon River. Also try other areas such as the estuary of the Little Salmon River, the boat launch at Pine Grove and other mud-bottomed areas. Worms and leeches are good choices of bait.
Oneida Lake report:
Anglers in the Toad Harbor area are finding some crappies on small minnows. Look for panfish in the bays and marinas and Big Bay is producing bullheads on worms and leeches.
Sandy Pond report:
According to Dave Wood of Woody’s Tackle:
The water level remains low in the pond but anglers are finding a few crappies and bluegills on small jigs tipped with minnows under a bobber. You may also find a few perch using minnows.
