Oswego River/Lake Ontario report:
Oswego River report:
According to Larry Muroski of Larry’s Oswego Salmon Shop:
The water flow in the river has been running between 4,000cfs and 8,500cfs. This morning it is reported at 6,230cfs. Fishing was good over the weekend with anglers at the dam, behind the powerhouse, on the wall and along the walkway. Although the water was at its top flow on Saturday, it was a beautiful day and a good number of fish were taken. Sunday was cooler with lower water and the action continued. Look for some brown trout and steelhead throughout the river. Egg sacs, estaz flies, crazy eggs, and sponges are working well.

Salmon River/Pulaski Area report:
According to Whitaker’s Sport Shop & Motel:
On Monday we had rain showers early in the morning before changing over to a mix of sun and clouds along with windy conditions. In the upper end of the river, anglers reported having a good day with plenty of action at the Upper and Lower Fly Fishing Area, Frazier’s Run, Ellis Cove, Trestle Pool and Sportsman Pool. Glo-bugs, estaz eggs, comets, black or olive woolly buggers, egg sucking leeches, bunny leeches and starlite leeches seem to be producing the best results.

According to the Douglaston Salmon Run:
The water is high, but the fishing is awesome!! We are seeing another fresh push of kings and still lots of bright steelies and browns. The sun is shining and it is another great day on the DSR!

According to Capt. Troy Creasy of High Adventure Sportfishing:
The water is up to 750cfs through Wednesday evening. The spawning ground throughout the Salmon River is loaded with kings. Ellis Cove, Fraziers Run, The upper Trestle and the gravel above the Sportsman pool are all holding good numbers of salmon. The fishing in the lower end of the river was steady with good numbers of kings, browns and steelhead moving through there throughout the weekend. Suggested patterns are comets, nymphs, large stoneflies and streamers. For the bait anglers, the preferred colors of choice are blue, pink and chartreuse egg sacs Please remember to be careful, respect the water and use caution when wading.

According to Dave Wood of Woody’s Tackle:
The fishing was very good in the river over the weekend. We have lots of fish throughout the river and there has been a new influx of them from the lake in the last couple of days. Look for salmon fishing to be good for the next couple of weeks at least and good numbers of brown trout and steelhead are coming in right behind them.

Oneida Lake report:
Yellow perch can be found in 10-15 feet of water around Shackleton Shoals. Good choices of bait are small crabs and minnows. Daytime walleye fishing continues to be slow but anglers are starting to get fish from shore casting stickbaits after dark. Smallmouth bass fishing continues to be good throughout the lake.

Sandy Pond report:
There is not much activity on the pond at this time.
