Fishing Reports for Dec. 1, 2011


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

Oswego River report:

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

With the rain we have received this week the water level has risen to 13,300cfs. This higher level makes many areas along the river inaccessible. Look for steelhead, rainbows and brown trout at Lock 7, the Kiddie Pool and along the southside of the powerhouse. Driftboats are working the waters with some nice catches being reported. Trout beads, egg sacs, smackem beads, pink worms, estaz eggs and woolly buggars are working well.

Salmon River report:

According to Dave Wood of Woody’s Tackle:

The trout fishing has been very good on the Salmon River. From the village of Pulaski upstream is seeing the most action although steelhead, rainbows and brown trout are active throughout the river. Suggested baits are egg sacs, flies, beads, little jigs, wax worms and meal worms.

According to Whitaker’s Sport Shop & Motel:

On Wednesday we had colder weather along with rain showers and the temperature was in the low 40’s. With the recent rain, the water level has risen to 1,000cfs. The anglers we spoke with who fished the lower end of the river reported the water was off color along with plenty of leaves, but it should clear up quickly now that the rain has passed. The anglers we spoke with who fished the upper end of the river reported that leaves were not an issue and the clarity was good. Just a reminder that the Upper Fly Fishing area is closed until April 1.

According to the Douglaston Salmon Run:

We got a good amount of rain over the last couple of days which has pushed the water up to 1,000 cfs. Hopefully, this along with some cold temperatures overnight will bring a nice push of steelies.

Oneida Lake report:

The nighttime walleye bite continues to be slow. Anglers are finding, however, that the daytime bite has been good in the deeper water. Stickbaits are working at night while jigging is the preferred application during the day. Yellow perch fishing has picked up some. A good starting point for the perch has been in 10 to 20 feet of water around weed beds.

Sandy Pond report:

According to Dave Wood of Woody’s Tackle:

Activity is quiet on the pond and with the warmer weather we have been having, ice fishing is definitely a ways off.
