Oswego River/Lake Ontario report:

Oswego River report:

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

With the recent rain we have had, the water level has been running between 4,000cfs and 7,000cfs with this morning’s flow at 6,700cfs. Anglers are continuing to find a few brown trout and steelhead using stickbaits, minnows, worms and egg sacs. There are plenty of sheephead taking crayfish, crankbaits, and nightcrawlers. Catfish are taking nightcrawlers, crayfish and stinkbait.  Walleye are active in the harbor and near flatrock. Bass are being taken on a catch and release basis only with minnows, worms, stickbaits, spinnerbaits and spoons.

Lake Ontario report:

Reports indicate there was some improvement in the brown trout fishing the last few days. Early morning continues to bring the most active bite in about 30-50 feet of water. Once the sun is up, things quiet down. Lake trout are active in about 100 feet of water with cowbells and peanuts good choices of bait. There has also been a few salmon showing up in the deeper water.

Mexico Bay report:

According to Capt. Gerry Bresadola of B & B Sportfishing Charters:

It seems like each and every year early June presents some challenging fishing puzzles to solve.  As the lake begins to stratify into its summer condition look for that puzzle to become easier to solve as the various species seek out their well defined preferred temperature zones. Check out the contours off Catfish for browns, while offshore regions should see a pick up in salmon action. Presently the Nine Mile buoy line continues to offer an early a.m. bite with Lakers holding in the 95’ on out range. The last few days have seen a number of small kings appearing, which is a good sign. As we roll into summer get ready for some good salmon action.

Pulaski Area report:

According to Dave Wood of Woody’s Tackle:

We are still in the transition period but there has been a good brown trout bite reported in 30-50 feet of water off the Salmon River. Anglers are finding some whitefish, a fish native to the area but they have not been found here for many, many years. Lakers can be found in 110-120 feet of water off Catfish. There is also a perch bite happening along the lake shoreline.

Oneida Lake report:

Oneida Lake continues to be up and down. Some anglers are reporting a few decent days and others continue to struggle. Look in water 15-25 feet and also deeper in the 35 foot range. Blade baits and black/purple jigs tipped with a nightcrawler are suggested baits to try. Trolling with lead core and stickbaits is also getting the job done. Anglers are reporting some panfish activity as well.

Sandy Pond report:

According to Dave Wood of Woody’s Tackle:

The weeds are getting thick on the pond but anglers are changing their applications and finding the walleye action. Jigging would be a suggested technique. Anglers are finding bluegills and perch with shiners, spoons and live bait good choices of bait.
