Oswego River report:
According to Larry’s Oswego Salmon Shop:
The water flow has been down the last few days running between 2,000-6,000cfs. This morning it is running at 3,300cfs. With this flow all areas along the river are fishable. Brown trout, steelhead and rainbows have been active throughout the river with trout beads and egg sacs being good choices of bait along with estaz eggs, woolly buggars and crazy eggs.
Salmon River report:
According to Whitaker’s Sport Shop & Motel:
Fishing along the river has been good. The rifles, pocket water and inside seams have been producing steady action. The upper end of the river between Altmar and Pineville continues to get the most fishing pressure. Anglers in the Upper and Lower Fly Fishing Area have been getting into steelhead on a daily basis. The lower end of the river continues to produce fresh chrome on a daily basis for those anglers willing to cover water. For fly fishing anglers, dead drifting egg patterns along the bottom or under a strike indicator has been very productive throughout the river. For float fishing, trout beads and egg sacs have been the top producers.
Oneida Lake report:
The nighttime walleye bite has been on and off. Just before and after dark are the prime target times. Stickbaits are getting the job done with black/silver and blue/silver being good color choices. Gizzard shad have been the cause of a slow smallmouth bass bite and yellow perch fishing has been on and off for the same reason although some nice sized ones are being reported.
Sandy Pond report:
According to Dave Wood of Woody’s Tackle:
Activity on the pond is quiet as is typical for this time of year.
