New York Fishing Report for Lake Ontario and Salmon River

Salmon River - Freshwater Fishing Report

Salmon River Update

By: Troy


Well the salmon season is just about in full swing as good numbers of fresh salmon are entering the salmon river as well as the Black river and North & South Sandy creeks. This weekend traditionally is looked upon as the first big weekend with large numbers of anglers expected to hit the area streams. Why not sneak out today or tomorrow before the crowds get here. Look for salmon to be on the move early each day. Friends tells me that the Sportsman hole and the Trestle pool is loaded with bright kings and cohoís. The Oswego Harbor also had a good run of salmon. The river is still high, but it is dropping daily.

I have to advise everyone to use caution when wading the creeks. Not only is the water high but the rocks are real slippery due to the heavy algae content this year. Always where cleats or korkers when wading.

The lake fishing continues to be red hot with large numbers of chinooks staging at the mouths of all the areas rivers and streams. There are a lot of fish out there just waiting to be caught. The area in front of the salmon river is just stacked with fish getting ready to make their run. The boat traffic is intense but the fish are there.

We are taking most of our fish out of Oswego right in front of the harbor. We are finding the fish down 15 to 25 feet over 30 to 40 feet of water. J-Plugs in green glow and green and yellow are catching 95% of our fish.

Bass season will be closing the end of this month and they will be feeding heavy to get ready for the long winter that lies ahead. Work the structure areas and drop-offs with crabs and worms around 4 mile point in Scriba and the green can just west of Oswego. The rock piles in Sandy Pond will be holding some nice fish this time of year as well.

You can log on to our website anytime at www.Lakeontariooutdoors.com We have daily fishing reports, information on lake charters and river guides, as well as numerous links to great sites and area businesses.

November 15 just opened up if anyone wants it.
