  1. How about they guys walking up the stream right in front of where you're fishing looking to snag a salmon and disturbing everyone else in the river!

    There are a lot of "AH's" on the streams this time of year.

  2. Went out today out of Oswego for salmon. Saw a moderate amount of fish marked on the fish finder out front of the smoke stacks in 90 - 100 fow down 55 - 75 ft. All running on top of bait fish. A few more marked just east also. We did not get a single fish in the boat! Had only 2 knock-offs all day ( 6 am - 3 PM). Saw two separate boats bring in a salmon each; one around 7:30 am, and the other around 2:30 PM out front of the stacks. Used NBK spoon/flasher (green/green); green flasher/silver/red nose j-plus on the downriggers. Changed to flies (green) on the downriggers. Had 2 walker divers(fire tiger) with silver flasher/dwb; the other walker wonderbread/silver flasher/wonderbread spoon. Must be doing something wrong, but don't know what! Spoke with a few others on the water and they were not having much luck. They're still out there though.


  3. Welcome to the forum. I did the same. Baught my first boat last August (2003 Lund 17') and learned how to use all of the equipment on Owasco. Went out the first time to LO for salmon. Caught my first in the lake two weeks ago. There is a lot of good people here with lots of great information. Everyone is very helpful.


  4. We caught this rainbow on a green and silver spoon with black dots on the green area. Shape was willow leaf and is about 4" long. Purchased at Walmart in Lockport. Caught many lakers with this as well. Use a silver flasher 20' off the weight. Leader is about 24". Troll 2.5 mph.

  5. I'm new to this forum, and new to boating/fishing. Baught a Lund Fisherman 17' w/115 Yamaha 4 stroke last August. Have been on my home lake (Owasco) a lot, and have been on Oneida twice fishing for walleye. I plan to go to Oswego and try my luck for Walleye, and maybe try trolling for Kings. Trol a lot for Lake trout on Owasco, and we caught a 30" rainbow last Monday evening. Does anyone have any suggestions for fishing for walleye and/or kings in the Oswego area?
