  1. f Fishing has been awesome. Some as heavy as 30 been sneaking around. Once you get out to 225 fow they are scattered all over. Meat, spoons etc all work well. We mostly marked fish in 90 down. The trend should continue as the water recedes It is still up there but very fishable. No fishing license needed until labor day and the park is half off. Go get em!....
  2. The water is receding At least I dont have to swim to get to my boat lol. FIshing has been Summer patterns, some find them some dont. Those that do are in the 150 to 180 range 90 ft down. Last week most caught Browns believe it or not. Not too many salmon as of late. Looks like very little rain coming our way and they are finally letting water out of the lake. Personally I would hate to be affiliated with the Joint commission from this point on. lol...NY state is going to be right up their ass come Fall when its time to drain the lake.
  3. The thing is loaded with rock bass and other fish. But I didnt fish this trip
  4. Im not gonna lie here lol. This rain has got to go.Were pretty flooded, none like ive ever seen. Everyone can have an opinion on the flood but for me I just have to look toward "Nature" as it intends to be. So I figured with this brief lapse of rain this am I would step back into Nature and see if I could find anything good outta all this. I took my kayak into the Sterling Creek for my annual trip. Crystal clear water, spawning carp, birds of all kinds just lined the creek. The high waters actually gave me passage way into some hidden tributaries that normally would not be accessible by any means. Everything as far as Nature was concerned was coping well.
  5. I believe that it still is but its best to call the park directly since this is a day to day basis.....Right now they are still discussing the situation in Oswego. As much as they want to accommodate everyone to the best of their abilities, liabilities rule here. They cant have people on those docks at their own risk particularly when it comes to charter boats....Major liability there particularly when it comes to charter business customers....Im sure they will put out more information as they gather it but for now this is where we stand.
  6. This afternoon Wrights landing in Oswego closed indefinitely and all boats need to be evacuated.. As a result there is a lot of scrambling going on particularly with the bigger boats that do not have trailer systems. That being said, here is a statement from Scott and Kim at Bayside Marina. As far as local launches are concerned im not certain about the State Park but the local launches are really flooded and really not conductive to safe boating...The water will recede eventually. Everyone just needs to work thru this for now...
  7. And the flooding continues......As of right now West Barrier Bar is shut off because it looks like a swimming pool, Yesterday as the storms rolled in the water literally rose 8 inches in 10 minutes to the point where my "Sea Otter" which was on dry grass almost started to float lol.
  8. The launches are open and fishing is fine. Picked this little guy up today right outside the chute...The recent rain and winds spread the fish out more. You just need to find them..
  9. Wow six years to the day! how fast it goes. Today is the 6th anniversary of this thread. Thanks to all your input, this thread has become one of the most popular if not the most popular thread on this site. Over 200K plus views and over a thousand posts! Not to mention the awesome information this thread has created as it was intended to do! Lets see if we can make it to ten years...Then we will have a huge party lol... That being said the Fog pulled in this am shut down the fishing. The few that went out came back in due to the calmness of the water. Maybe tomorrow. Kudos to everyone once again for making this a very informative thread... Carmen (Mr. Clean)
  10. Absolutely the state park is the best for boaters not familiar with the area. There are local launches but start there first...
  11. Lets not everyone get paranoid lol. Yes the water is high it will recede its not like 2017... Here is a copy from Bayside Marinas page....Dont jump ship people it aint all that bad despite what some say lol "Contrary to any rumors Bayside Marina WILL be launching boats daily regardless of flood water levels. We have the equipment and the resources to make it possible to get everyone in the water. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the office staff at 315-947-5773. HIGH water will not compromise our launching schedule."
  12. Stay home....This is not the weekend to be here. Currently winds are gusting to the 30's plus its snowing and blowing....Water level is way up but thats most likely due to the heavy winds going on now...8 ft waves at a minimum. They say its going to calm down tomorrow......stay home lol...
  13. Fishin is hot in FH. Everyone came back this am by 11 due to limiting out. Tomorrow will be tricky due to the winds coming in tonight. We shall see..
  14. Well if one wants to deal with 30 mph winds out of the south have at it lol...For those who have got out this week fishing was pretty good. The few charters did get fish in tight as usual. I get dumped in next week. CU on the water..
  15. There is only three things you need to do. Fish FIsh and Fish...Have fun out there take your time, experiment on your own desire. The more time you spend on the water will gain experience. Im certain you have ample equipment and lours to get the job done. Browns are in close fish those, even try flat lining with spoons. Your knowledge will grow with time spent on the water. There are no guarantees but with time and energy you will catch fish on a regular basis...Good luck
  16. typical Spring weather now. The lake was rockin the last couple of days. First time ive seen a charter boat go out. Well see what they do. The water level is fine. I have seen it a lot higher and lower as well. Most of the run off is gone so we should be fine. Im sure there is fish out there. Good time for calico's in the south end. my dump in date is the 19th...Go get em lol..
  17. Everything should be fine. The ice is melting away, Its mostly at the south end where we all are. The chute will remain open and honestly the water level is where it should be for this time of year. I would actually like to see it come up just a tad.
  18. Aa I expected funding has been approved and the Army Core of Engineers will begin planning. It looks worse than it really is. They may seek additional funding to redo more of the piers but for now geese are returning but there still is more winter left but Spring is getting close...
  19. Here is an update. The ladders are holding the barrier into place for now. There is still plenty of room for nautical access in and out of the lake. We still have a way to go with this..Waters and winds typically get harder on the piers in the initial Spring. The goal now is to prevent any more separation between the wall and metal barriers. I will update as we hear more.
  20. Well its considered a "safe harbor" access owned by the federal govt maintained by the Army core of Engineers. Basically it has to stay open. to nautical traffic. They may close it for a short time for certain parts of the repair but it wont really effect boats unless it totally rips off and creates a serious hazard. And even at that point it would get fixed relatively quick for reopening the harbor....Definitely will be closed to foot traffic. We will update once we hear more....
  21. We will be fine, yes the water level is high but their are still many factors of weather within the next few months that will shape reality....If we get minimal rain in the Spring which is common with an El Nino year like we have then the water will be at a nice level...Time will tell but no need for panic too early lol..
  22. Ive been waiting for this to happen for the past 30 years. That section has been fading away for decades. Dont worry this is owned and maintained by the federal govt in cooperation with the army core of engineers. That pier is considered to be a safe passageway to a safe harbor therefore qualifying for federal funding. That being said if they did close the pier it would be to foot traffic. Any waterway access would really not be effected with exception of maybe a short time for certain parts of the repair There always has to be open passageway for a "safe harbor"...Our illustrious senators have already stated they will start the process for funding.....And it will get worse in the next month. Their is still a ton of ice jam out on that lake and the seas being high will continue to rip it apart....But it will get fixed and really shouldnt be a concern that we cant get out and fish... Politically speaking lol....Ironically the funding the govt accesses for this type of scenario comes from the military funding that trump can use in his national emergency declaration to fund the wall...Lol
  23. Its ice fishing time lol. We had 80 mph winds last week but Fair Haven seemed to hold its own. Bay is frozen and the lake is an ice barrier from all those heavy winds. Today is March 1st but dont let that fool anyone...stay warm its going to get freezing again..
