A film crew from the Outdoor Channel network spent several days in Oswego County in early July, fishing for trophy-sized salmon and trout on Lake Ontario. Both boats are based at Wrightâ€™s Landing Marina in Oswego.
â€œThe fact that the Outdoor Channel has two licensed outfitters based in Oswego testifies to the fantastic fishing opportunities that we have in Oswego County,â€ said David Turner, director of the County Department of Community Development, Tourism and Planning. â€œWe are just entering the fall salmon season and already weâ€™re hearing of 36-lb. salmon being taken. It should be a very productive fall for anglers here in Oswego County.â€
