FISHING REPORT Oswego County

Here is the latest area fishing report provided by the Oswego County Department of Promotion & Tourism.

Notice listed

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.

Oswego River

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

The water level in the river continues to be low running at 1,490cfs although it has spiked at times to about 3,000cfs. Some rainfall would be helpful to raise the level and move the fish around some. Catfish, sheepshead and bass are taking crayfish, worms and cutbait. Look for good bass action near the breakwall and at flatrock and to the west at Ford Shoals.

Lake Ontario

According to Capt. Tony Buffa of Capt. Tony Buffa’s Fishing Charters:

Our anglers on Monday did not wait for the evening fireworks and they simply staged their own aboard the “BANDITO” while salmon fishing on Lake Ontario. After missing their first three strikes, they landed the next ten for an exceptional catch of summer salmon. R&R Aqua glo shad series spoons and dodger/fly combinations fished from wire dipsys, copper and downriggers were the order of the day.

Mexico Bay area

According to Capt. Gerry Bresadola of B&B Sportfishing Charters:

June is typically the transition time for the lake with horizontal water temperatures being more defined in July. Look for your targeted fish in the preferred temperature zone for example brown trout in 55-degree water and salmon in the mid 40s. These are ranges so don’t be afraid to experiment with lure depth. Bass are in close and on rock bars.

Salmon River/Pulaski area

According to Dave Wood of Woodyís Tackle & General Store:

The lake fishery has continued to develop this week. The salmon fishing has been good with more of them and nice sized fish being taken. Look in 120-140 ft. of water with spoons and dodger/fly combinations working well. The natural born killer and the die hard in the magnum sizes have been very successful. Brown trout are in 80-90 ft. of water and anglers are finding good bass action toward Mexico Bay using worms and live minnows.

Sandy Pond

According to Dave Wood of Woodyís Tackle & General Store:

The fishing on the pond has been good. Anglers are finding largemouth bass and northern pike using live minnows and worms. Look also for an occasional walleye to be mixed in.

Oneida Lake

According to Capt. Tony Buffa of Capt. Tony Buffa’s Fishing Charters:

The walleyes and the bass each had their days on Oneida Lake recently. On one outing over the weekend, the weather and the fish provided the synergy and the anglers applied their jigging skills to boat an aggregate of 27 walleyes, four smallmouth bass and one catfish. These were taken in 32-35 feet of water. The following day the walleyes were tight lipped but the bass left the grasses and provided topwater fun for all. Chug Bugs, Hula Poppers, and Fat Raps were served with six-pound fireline.
