There is some perch activity at Wright’s Landing off the blue crane using minnows and worms.

Lake Ontario report:

According to Capt. Andy Bliss of Chasin Tail Adventure Charters:

The salmon bite has been very active from Oswego east to the Pulaski area. Yesterday was a good day with the afternoon bite starting with a nice king and a dandy coho. Green E-chip, Mountain Dew and hammer have been working well. The bite continued this morning in 120-140 feet of water with flies, flies, flies being the choice of bait.

Mexico Bay report:

According to Dave Wood of Woody’s Tackle:

The salmon active is very good in the eastern end of the lake off the tributaries. Flies and flashers are working well. The bass are active in 16-30 feet of water across the bay and a good perch bite has been reported in 5-10 feet of water using minnows.

Salmon River/Pulaski Area report:

Salmon River report:

According to the Douglaston Salmon Run:

There were a few guides and a few season pass holders on the run early this morning. They reported seeing some small groups of fish on the move right at day break. Since the sun has come up movement has halted and they have seen no other fish. The water is back up to 335cfs.

Pulaski Area/Lake Ontario report:

According to Whitaker’s Sport Shop & Motel:

Late yesterday afternoon we went out on the lake for the first time this season. We worked 60-80 ft of water between the mouth of the river and the south dunes.  We marked good numbers of fish and saw several fish rolling on top. Green glo ladder back j-plugs down 56 feet produced the best results.  The current grand prize leader in the tournament is 39lbs. and the top 20 are all over 31lbs. When these fish hit the river it’s going to be exciting.

According to Dave Wood of Woody’s Tackle:

The salmon bite is very good particularly off the mouth of the Salmon River. Look in 70-90 feet of water down 60-70 feet. A variety of flies, flashers along with cut bait are working well.

Oneida Lake report

Walleye fishing on the lake has been good. Both deep and shallow waters around Shackelton Shoals, Dutchman’s Bar and Lewis Point have seen some action. Smallmouth bass have been a bit spotty but drop-shot rigs, tubes and plastic craws have been working in the deeper water. Largemouth bass have been active along the deep weed lines.

Sandy Pond report:

Conditions remain about the same on the pond. This typically is a quiet time but you can still find a few bass and northern pike along the weed lines. The suggested baits remain the same with spinnerbaits, rubber worms, and small crankbaits good choices.
