Over the last few days the fishing has been great. Salmon have been active in 120-300 feet of water east and west of the Oswego Harbor. Flies and flashers have been working well along with cut bait and spoons. The brown trout bite has also been good with some nice size fish being reported.

The fishing continues to be very, very good – just a great season so far. Look for the early morning brown trout bite in 50-70 feet of water. Kings are very active in 150-180 feet of water. Baits remain the same with fly/flasher combinations, cut bait and spoons working well. A decent bass bite is occurring near Mexico in 18-26 feet of water with minnows, crayfish and nightcrawlers working well.

The fishing remains the same on the pond. It is heavily weeded but anglers are finding some largemouth bass along with northern pike. Minnows, Rapalas, spinner baits and jigs are working well with early morning and toward evening the most productive times.
