Fishing Report Oswego

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

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 remains low. The river is producing catfish on cut bait, and bass are taking minnows and worms. Walleyes are hitting nightcrawlers in the harbor area and perch are active behind Breitbeck Park using worms and minnows. Anglers are finding bass near the breakwall and the lighthouse, at Flatrock, Ford Shoals, and Smith Beach.

Lake Ontario

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

Anglers have been catching salmon from 600 feet of water inshore to 120 feet. We have been fishing the deeper water, which has been producing teenagers along with the mature fish. The thermocline has been consistently 75-80 feet below the surface. The high winds on Sunday afternoon did not disturb conditions in the deep water – a few hours of wind will not affect this much water. A variety of bait is working including cut bait, flies, spoons and J-plugs. The Silver Bullet Rosey, Spin Doctor attractor with the green Dolphin fly, and the Atomic Mirage fly have been taking fish. Dipsy Divers with 280-320 feet of wire are also working.

Mexico Bay area

According to Dave Wood of Woody’s Tackle and General Store:

The salmon fishing has been good in 120-180 feet of water down 70-80 feet below the surface especially toward the Nine Mile Point facility. A variety of spoons have been working well including the Michigan Stingers, the Natural Born Killer, and the Tuxedo in the magnum and stingray size. Look for bass in 15-40 feet of water, and there have been reports of perch activity, although they have been small.

Salmon River/Pulaski area

According to Dave Wood of Woody’s Tackle and General Store:

The salmon bite has been good and they can be found inshore as close as 120-180 feet or as deep as 600 feet in some areas. There is some early morning brown trout action. A variety of spoons and dodger-fly combinations are working well. Look for bass along the shoreline in 15-40 feet of water with live bait.

Sandy Pond

According to Dave Wood of Woody’s Tackle & General Store:

Northern pike are taking large minnows and bass and perch are taking minnows and worms.

Oneida Lake

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

The walleye action has been good on Oneida Lake. Troll the deeper water pulling lead core in five or six colors. Jr. Thundersticks and Rapalas are working well. Fish anywhere from Buoy 121 to Buoy 109, but fish the north side of the buoys. Bass are active along the rock piles using crayfish
