Oswego County Fishing Reports for June 10, 2016
Lake Ontario report:
The wind has been the biggest player over the last couple of days. Waves of up to 6 feet have kept boats dockside. Conditions have settled down some today. Early in the week lakers were the most active with an occasional brown being taken. Salmon have been elusive.
Oswego River report
The water flow has been up and down earlier in the week. Yesterday it dropped drastically and this afternoon it is flowing at 976cfs. Anglers are finding sheepshead, smallmouth bass and an occasional walleye or catfish. Even a few largemouth bass have been reported. Worms, minnows and stickbaits are working well.
The bridge to Leto Island is closed, and there are Mandatory Personal Flotation Device (PFD) zones on the Oswego River below the Varick Dam.

Pulaski Area/Salmon River report:
Windy conditions have made for little fishing on the lake over the last couple of days. Prior to this blow lakers were the most consistent in 100+ feet of water and a few brown trout were reported. As conditions settle down we will have to see if these west winds bring some salmon our way.
According to the Douglaston Salmon Run:
Smallmouth bass have been the most active on the run. Monday there was a report of a nice brown trout being taken and Tuesday’s fishing for one angler brought a nice eight pound Atlantic salmon to the net. The river is continuing to flow at 185cfs.
Oneida Lake report:
When anglers have been able to access the lake this week, they have found a few walleye particularly early in the morning and later in the day. Stickbaits and bucktail jigs tipped with a worm are working well. Anglers are finding a few bluegills and pickerel in the shallow water and a few smallmouth bass in 5-10 feet of water.
Sandy Pond report:
According to Woody’s Tackle:
The pond has been a little quiet with not a lot of anglers out. Those that did venture out found a few pre-season bass, a walleye or two and an occasional pike. Stickbaits and jigs are working well.
