Oswego River report:
According to Larry Muroski of Larry’s Oswego Salmon Shop:
The water level has dropped a little running at 9,850cfs this afternoon. There are some salmon moving up through the river to the dam but the cooler temperatures moving in by Thursday will hopefully bring more in from the lake. There has been a decent concentration of salmon at the dam the last few of days. Also look for a few brown trout and steelhead in the mix. Baits to try include estaz flies, woolly buggers, egg sacs, and crazy eggs. Anglers are finding a few walleyes down behind the YMCA.
Notice: The New York State Department of Transportation (DOT) has closed the bridge over Oswego Canal’s Lock 7 at Leto Island. No vehicular traffic is allowed over the bridge.
Lake Ontario report:
Anglers are reporting very good fishing the last couple of days as the salmon make their way to the tributaries. A steady bite is being found in 40-70 feet of water – some of the best fishing of the season. Green and white have been good colors so far but it is time to add in some red.
Pulaski area/Salmon River report:
Anglers fishing off the mouth of the Salmon River are reporting a very steady bite in about 40 feet of water. With substantially cooler temperatures arriving by Thursday, look for activity in the estuary and on up into the river to pick up. Flies, flashers, spoons and cut bait are continuing to work well on the lake.
According to the Whitaker’s Sport Shop and Motel:
We’ve been stuck in the same weather pattern for several days and Monday was no different. It was another warm and humid day with plenty of sunshine and the temperature reached into the upper 70’s. Anglers along parts of the river reported very few new fish on the move. Over the last few days the majority of action has been in or around the deeper holes such as Black Hole, Town Pool, Papermill, Sportsman Pool and Trestle Pool. Cooler temperatures are moving in for later in the week so hopefully this will set things in motion.
Oneida Lake report:
According to Capt. Troy Creasy of High Adventure Sportfishing Charters:
On Oneida Lake, smallmouth bass have been active recently near Shackelton Shoals. Look for walleye in 40 ft. of water using jr. thundersticks in silver/blue and the perch series. We have also had reports of some yellow perch activity in 12 ft. of water in front of well-defined weed beds using fathead minnows.
Sandy Pond report:
According to Dave Wood of Woody’s Tackle:
There is very little activity to report from Sandy Pond at this time.
