Oswego River report:

According to Larry’s Oswego Salmon Shop:

The water flow has been running between 7,000-10,000cfs for the last few days. This morning it is running at 9,680cfs. This is a fishable level in many areas but as always please use caution. The trout season on the river is beginning with browns, steelhead and rainbow  taking trout beads and egg sacs. Things are quieting down for the salmon angler but there are still a few in the mix.

Salmon River report:

According to Capt. Troy Creasy of High Adventure Sportfishing Charters:

Fishing remains very good throughout the Salmon River. We are pounding fish seven days a week! The water levels are low but the fish are there. Water temperatures have stabilized and actually climbed back into the upper 40’s. The bite is on and we have been smoking the fish. Eggs, beads, lures, and swinging flies – it is all working right now. Chrome fish are being caught from top to bottom. No need to go to Altmar and stand elbow to elbow; pick your favorite hole and dig in.

According to the Douglaston Salmon Run:

It has been a beautiful couple of days on the water and fishing has been good. The fish are down a little with the lower water and bright sun. However, the morning and afternoon bite has been good. Beads and sacs were the top producers today, but I did see plenty of fly anglers hooking up as well.

Oneida Lake report:

The nighttime walleye bite continues to be doing well with just before and after dark prime target times. Stickbaits are getting the job done with black/silver and blue/silver being good color choices. Smallmouth bass have not been cooperating as they are feeding on small gizzard shad and yellow perch fishing has been on and off 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.
