  14. This report courtesy of the Oswego County Department of Community Development, Tourism and Planning. This report was written on July 19, 2018. Lake Ontario report: According to Capt. Troy Creasy of High Adventure Sportfishing Charters: The great fishing on Lake Ontario continues. It might not be the bloodbath for everybody that we had over the last two months but we were spoiled and it is still very good. The nice thing is they are spread out east to west and north to south and on any given day you can catch multiple species. The deep water is giving up plenty of chinooks and a few ironheads mixed in, and if you stay in the short water, the kings and browns have been plentiful. You can also throw in a couple bonus lake trout and steelhead as well. The spoon bite continues to be good especially early in the day, but as the sun gets high and the chinooks move a little deeper meat and atomik flies are taking most of our bites.
