    Oswego fishing report

    Everyone is so stuck on fishing “temp”, if you were able to attend the State of the Lake meeting 2 years ago, or were able to get the notes, there was/is a study going on by the Canadian DNR. They put pop up tags on kings and a steelheads. The info they shared as far as where these fish go will open your eyes!!!! Adult Kings during June, July, and early August in 65-70 degree water.... we are guessing what they are doing is eating, then they dive back down into the freezer to digest, then back up again 6-8 hours later. So after seeing that info, and watching what my Furuno has been telling me... out something in that “hot” water!!! So here is a spread I started with..... I run 3 riggers on my boat, probe rigger is at 50 degrees, then I will put my deep rigger in the freezer, usually 15-25’ below the 50 degrees, this is usually a meat rig, unless it is a strict spoon bite. Other corner rigger is 10-20’ above the probe, depending what I am seeing on the screen. Usually will be a spoon, until the fish tell me they want FF or meat. Dipseys are usually run one above and one below 50 degrees, until I see where the active fish are!!! Coppers..... one board will have a short copper... this weekend I was running 300,350,450,500.... all took bites.... but I will always put a shirt copper in the “oven”.... 60-65 degree water, this usually has a plug, or a bright colored stingray on it!!! The other board will have a copper for 50 degrees and that will start with a FF or meat from now on, but will get changed of the spoons are on fire. Chute copper will be a meat rig, and that will be in the freezer!!!! This rod took my biggest fish of the weekend!!! Take the blinders off, read what the fish are telling you and then dial it in!!!! Do not, and I repeat “ DO NOT” live by your probe!!! Let the fish tell you what they want!!! Goood Luck, if you are out of Oz this weekend, I will be out every day starting Friday for a week, shoot me a pm and I will pass along what I am finding!! Capt Rich.

    I always run a couple baits out of temp, in temp and below temp. Once the rods start firing then I close the pattern in on the hot zone!! Capt Rich Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Fish your graph!!!! Most of our fish were up out of temp,’especially early. But they have been out of temp for the last few Weeks. My 50’ rigger was on fire this morning, it was 63 degrees there!! Capt Rich. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Started in 85 went out to 250-300 and back in again. Our big fish came on spoons but we did have 8-10 meat bites today. Temp was a little deeper, 75-80’ down, but most of our fish came up in the warm water. Speeds were tricky, but read your cables and dipseys. Capt Rich Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Not sure where you went but we had no problems finding and getting fish today. Kings and steelies, spoons and meat. Landed 15-16 and dropped a bunch of others. Capt Rich. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Spiny Water Flea BEST LINE?

    Ace was even complaining about the build up on the 40lb the other day. I went to 50lb with no issues on the 50lb. As soon as the 30lb hit the water we had fleas. They are thicker this year than any other year I can remember. Capt Rich Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Maybe where you where Andy, but all of mine were fleas. If it was cottonwood, it would have been all over the 50lb just like the 30, but the 50 was clear all the way. Either way it creates a mess. Will be gone in a couple weeks. Capt Rich Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. If you let the crud sit over night and it dries, and just crumbs off because it is fully dry then it has no cottonwood in it. In Oz it is all fleas, when we were done, I put the rods away, and pulled them out the next morning and it just fell off. Cottonwood retains water and takes forever to dry. A couple weeks ago we had cotton wood terrible, it was all over the surface, this is under the surface down 30-40’. You guys in the western part might still have cottonwood, but deff not on the east end. Capt Rich Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. There is not a new flea that the DEC is aware, I believe what we are seeing is a very fast population rise of the fish hook flea. Every year we get 2-3 weeks of these then the water gets too hot and the spiny water fleas break out, which are easier to get rid of. Here is an article I found online. https://www.in.gov/dnr/files/spiny_and_fishhook_water_flea.pdf We will see how long they last this year, before we get some relief. What I had Monday was deff all fleas, when they dried, they just fell off the lines. Capt Rich Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Fleas

    Out of Oz today it was all fleas!!! No cotton wood on the lines at all, very very little left on the water. About 2’weeks if this species of flea, then we will get the spinny water flea and things will Get better. They just fall off most lines, so we are actually able to go back to lighter lines.

    Spliced in 100-120’ of 50lb mono today. That fixed it, as long as the 30lb does not stay in the water. They were bad out of Oz today!! Capt Rich. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
