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

Oswego River report:

The water level has been running between 2,000-7,000cfs for the last few days. This morning it is registering at 4,900cfs. Look for sheephead, smallmouth bass and carp taking crayfish, minnows, worms, and leeches. Anglers are finding rockbass, bluegills, perch and crappies at Wright’s Landing near the blue crane.

Lake Ontario report:

Conditions did settle down the end of last week and hopefully that wind pushed a good number of salmon into the eastern end of the lake. Anglers on the water into last weekend were finding some action in about 450 feet of water; some nice 14 – 22 pound salmon were reported. The cold water was deep but the salmon were there. The wind has not really been an issue the last few days and reports have indicated activity in 110-140 feet of water. Flies and flashers are continuing to get the job done.

Pulaski area/Salmon River report:

According to Dave Wood of Woody’s Tackle:

Since last week’s blow, conditions have settled down but reports coming in are mixed. Some anglers are seeing very steady action, others finding it a little slower but overall most are finding fish. From off the Salmon River to Sandy Pond, the 110-120 ft. depths have been productive. Flies and flashers along with cut bait have been working well.

Salmon River:

The water level is currently running at 185cfs. The river is generally quiet this time of year.

Oneida Lake report:

The walleye fishing continues to be slow. There has been some action along the weed lines and anglers are reporting some activity in deeper water. Bucktail jigs tipped with night crawlers and stickbaits are working well. Look for smallmouth bass near the shoals and around schools of bait fish. Carp have been active particularly early in the day and later afternoon.

Sandy Pond report:

According to Dave Wood of Woody’s Tackle:

There is no change on the pond. Bass anglers that can work through the weeds are finding some nice catches. Perch and panfish are also active. Jigs tipped with worms are working well.
