Fishing Reports for September 28, 2010


This report a courtesy of Oswego County Department of Community Development, Tourism and Planning.

According to Larry Muroski of Larry’s Oswego Salmon Shop:

The water level has been up and down running between 1,800cfs and 7,000cfs. There is significant rainfall in the forecast for Thursday which will likely affect the water level for the next few days. Due to the fluctuation of the water level, it is advised that anglers in the river wear flotation devices. Although there has been salmon activity in the river, with the rain and cooler temperatures coming later in the week hopefully this will spark a good run of salmon. Anglers on the night wall, Utica St. bridge north, have been having some success. Egg sacs, estaz flies, rubber eggs and trout beads are good choices of bait. Throughout the river sheephead and catfish continue to be active and smallmouth bass are biting on minnows and crankbaits.

The following notice has been posted for Lake Ontario waters:

Remember the area around the Nine Mile Point Nuclear Facility is off limits to boating. The restricted area stretches 1,000 yards offshore and extends from the Alcan plant to the Sunset Bay area along Lake Ontario, east of the city of Oswego.

Reminder: Seasonal regulations for Great Lakes Tributaries are in effect. Please consult a New York State DEC official regulations guide or they can be found on the DEC Web site at www.dec.ny.gov/docs/fish_marine_pdf/fishguide09.pdf.

Oswego River/Lake Ontario report:

Oswego River report:

According to Larry Muroski of Larry’s Oswego Salmon Shop:

The water level has been up and down running between 1,800cfs and 7,000cfs. Due to the fluctuation of the water level, please respond quickly to the siren used to notify of water level changes and it is advised that anglers in the river wear flotation devices. Although there has been salmon activity in the river, the rain we received yesterday and today and cooler temperatures coming later in the week will hopefully spark a good run of salmon. Anglers on the night wall, Utica St. bridge north, have been having some success. Egg sacs, estaz flies, rubber eggs and trout beads are good choices of bait. Throughout the river sheephead and catfish continue to be active and smallmouth bass are biting on minnows and crankbaits.

Lake Ontario report:

The lake fishing is winding down. Charters have been working the waters of the harbor and reporting some nice catches. Rain is expected this week along with much cooler temperatures this weekend so hopefully this will spark a good run of salmon into the river.

Mexico Bay report:

There has not been much lake fishing to report on this week.

Salmon River/Pulaski Area report:

Salmon River report:

According to Whitaker’s Sport Shop and Motel:

On Monday and this morning we had cloudy conditions and scattered rain showers. In the upper end of the river the deeper holes such as Sportsman Pool, Trestle Pool and Schoolhouse continue to produce action on a daily basis. Anglers who fished the Upper and Lower Fly Fishing Area reported a mix of kings, cohos and steelhead. Most productive patterns were estaz eggs, comets, egg sucking leeches, bunny leeches, estaz stones and woolly buggers.

According to the Douglaston Salmon Run:

I just got back up from the river. This morning was one of the best I have seen all year in the lower end. We had a steady push of kings and cohos all morning long. My anglers hooked more fish than we could count and the same went for all the anglers around us. This group of fish isn’t moving too fast and anglers should see good action all day.

Pulaski Area/Lake Ontario report:

According to Dave Wood of Woody’s Tackle:

There has not been much to talk about as far as lake fishing is concerned. It has been pretty quiet. There is a good number of fish in the river and with the rain and the colder temperatures for this weekend, we are looking for a good push of fish up the river.

Oneida Lake report

According to Capt. Jim Dence of All Seasons Sports:

The walleye bite continues to be good with trolling the suggested application. Worm harnesses, stickbaits and Michigan Stingers are good choices of bait. Jigging with sonars is also working well. Also look in Oneida Creek for walleye that have followed bait into this area. In 10-18 feet of water around the lake, anglers are finding perch and crappies and you will also find smallmouth bass following natural bait.

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

On Oneida Lake, night casting for the walleye is just beginning with access points such as launch sites, bridge abutments and marinas seeing some activity.  Stickbaits have been working well. Deep water trolling for walleye during the day has been successful using lead core and downrigger techniques.  Smallmouth bass have been active over the rockpiles and perch can be found in 12-15 ft. of water using fathead minnows.

Sandy Pond report:

The pond is quiet at this time, but you will still find a few bass taking spinnerbaits, rubber worms, and small crankbaits.
