Oswego River report:
According to Larry Muroski of Larry’s Oswego Salmon Shop:
The water level has dropped to 10,200cfs as of this morning. Some rain is expected this evening so this may change. At this level, more areas along the river are fishable. Steelhead, rainbows and browns are active throughout the river with Lock 7, the Kiddie Pool, the southside of the powerhouse and behind the hotels seeing activity. Trout beads, egg sacs, smackem beads, pink worms, estaz eggs and woolly buggars are suggested baits.
According to Capt. Troy Creasy of High Adventure Sporfishing Charters:
Anglers are continuing to see activity in the lower river behind the hotels as more fish are showing up in the harbor area. White 1/8 to 1/4 oz. jigs tipped with a worm or minnow is the ticket there.
Salmon River report:
According to Whitaker’s Sport Shop & Motel:
Tuesday was another nice day with temperatures reaching into the 40’s. The above average temperature for this time of year is expected to continue over the next few days and anglers should take advantage of the mild weather while it lasts. The water level is now down to 335cfs, but the recent high water has brought fresh fish into the river and spread them out from top to bottom. The transition water along with the softer edges and inside seams continues to produce fish on a daily basis. Suggested baits are estaz eggs in pink, chartreuse, white and blue along with sucker spawn, egg sucking leeches and woolly buggers.
According to the Douglaston Salmon Run:
Reports from guides yesterday were good with lots of fish being caught. The water temperature is 34 degrees. Large flies, egg patterns, egg sacs and beads are working well.
Oneida Lake report:
According to Capt. Troy Creasy of High Adventure Sportfishing Charters:
On Oneida Lake night casting for walleyes continues to be good along the shore. Dutchman’s and Lewis Point remain active areas. Perch are being taken along the rockpiles with worms and minnows.
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.
