  1. This report courtesy of the Oswego County Department of Community Development, Tourism and Planning. This report was written on November 15, 2018. Oswego River report: The river level has been running between 11,000cfs and 14,000cfs. The flow this morning is 13,500cfs. This level does make fishing from shore difficult in some places but anglers are finding success. Even with the cold weather driftboats are enjoying some really good trout fishing with nice steelhead, browns and a few rainbows coming to the net. According to Oz Angling Bait & Tackle: Whether you’re float fishing, fly fishing, or bottom bouncing, there are a number of effective techniques for catching Great Lakes trout. Water conditions, and the environment you are fishing will often determine which technique will be most effective. Notice: The bridge to Leto Island is closed, and there are mandatory personal flotation device (PFD) zones on the river.

  4. This report courtesy of the Oswego County Department of Community Development, Tourism and Planning. This report was written on November 2, 2018. Oswego River report: With the several days of rain we have had the water flow in the river has been increasing over the last few days. This morning it is flowing at 14,300 cfs. This makes some areas along the river difficult to fish. Scattered showers are again in the forecast for tomorrow but cool and dry for Sunday. According to Oz Angling Bait & Tackle: The run of kings is seemingly endless this fall! Hard to believe how many ‘good looking’ salmon are swimming around and willing to bite still. Anglers have been crushing kings on skein in the Oswego River and surrounding tributaries over the past week. There’s at least another week to target salmon at this rate. I wouldn’t be surprised to see kings being caught in late November this year. Click here to see the rest of this report on ILoveNYFishing.com.

  6. This report courtesy of the Oswego County Department of Community Development, Tourism and Planning. This report was written on October 25, 2018. Oswego River report: According to Capt. Andy Bliss of Chasin’ Tail Adventures: After a water flow of 600cfs Tuesday it is up to 7,050cfs this morning. With that there are some super fresh kings still heading up the Oswego River. Love helping people catch their first salmon and the joy it brings! According to Oz Angling Bait & Tackle: The salmon run is a bit behind this year and fresh kings are continuing to run in the Oswego River. Reports from yesterday indicate that the Varick Dam is stacked with king salmon. Anglers fishing off the wall are doing very well on salmon using skein under a float and throwing thundersticks as well. The salmon bite is hot right now with river temperatures in the low 50’s, these fish are snapping aggressively. Late October is always a great time of year to fish on the Oswego River because there are large quantities of fish and a wide variety of fish in the system. You can expect to catch mostly king salmon, steelhead, and brown trout right now. Click here to see the rest of this report on ILoveNYFishing.com.

Oswego River report: According to Oz Angling Bait & Tackle: The salmon fishing continues to impress on the Oswego River. Only a few female salmon are starting to drop their eggs. This means we have plenty of time left for targeting kings in the river. There are still kings in the lake that haven’t run into the river yet! Trout are showing up in better numbers as well. Look to target trout with 10 mm beads and egg sacs. The water flow has dropped below 3,000cfs running at 2,930cfs this afternoon. According to Larry’s Salmon Tackle: The trout are in the river with a sushi rig, smack beads, egg sacs and skein suggested bait. Anglers are continuing to find plenty of salmon.

  11. This report courtesy of the Oswego County Department of Community Development, Tourism and Planning. This report was written on October 8, 2018. Oswego River report: According to Oz Angling Bait and Tackle: The king salmon fishing has been phenomenal this fall. There have been big numbers of fish in the Oswego River for a couple weeks now and the fishing continues to improve as more fish enter the system every day. With a dry summer and warm start to the fall, the kings started running a bit later than usual this year and most female fish still have tight eggs. Looks like salmon fishing will extend into mid-November this year if we continue on a similar weather pattern. Ever since the river temp hit 65 degrees, the kings have really started snapping on skein, UV 10 mm beads, and Thundersticks. With the recent rain in the area the river flow is up to 9,110cfs as of this morning. Click here to see the rest of this report on ILoveNYFishing.com.
  12. This report courtesy of the Oswego County Department of Community Development, Tourism and Planning. This report was written on October 4, 2018. Oswego River report: According to Oz Angling Bait and Tackle: Fishing on the Oz has been very productive the last few days. Float fishing skein and beads has been the ticket off the wall for salmon and trout, while egg sacs, artificial eggs and flies have gotten it done at the dam. Given that this year’s run has kicked off a little late, and the water temperatures are on a slow decrease now, we are expecting the fishing to remain steady and solid throughout October and likely well into November. The river flow has been between 3,000-6,000cfs over the last few days. This afternoon it is flowing at just over 5,000cfs. Click here to see the rest of this report on ILoveNYFishing.com.
  13. This report courtesy of the Oswego County Department of Community Development, Tourism and Planning. This report was posted on October 2, 2018. Oswego River report: According to Oz Angling Bait and Tackle: Fishing on the Oswego River was hot this weekend. Anglers at the dam were catching mostly kings with some browns and rainbows mixed in. The most effective offerings at the dam were pink egg sacs, skein, and estaz flies. Anglers fishing off the wall were having great success on kings and rainbows using skein and deep diving lures. Float fishing with skein on the Oswego River has become a popular tactic for targeting king salmon during the fall over the past couple years. The skein bite will continue to improve as the water temperature drops throughout the month of October. The water flow has been running between 3,000-4,500cfs over the past couple of days. This morning it is flowing at 3,230cfs. Click here to see the rest of this report on ILoveNYFishing.com.

There have been big numbers of kings at the Varick Dam for the past week with browns, steelhead, and even a few cohos mixed in. Yesterday the river flow increased to 4,500cfs with a push of fresh fish. Anglers fishing the high wall and low wall are producing better results with skein over the past few days as well.
