  4. Oswego River report According to Jake Metcalf of fishoswegoriver.com: I decided to fish behind the hotels yesterday in search of brown trout. The water flow was 15,00cfs at the time. My tactic was simple – jig a white swim-bait off the bottom. I fished for an hour without any bites and finally got a hit around 3 pm when the air temperature got to a peak of about 44 degrees. Initially I guessed that I was hooked up with a brown because it was digging hard and staying down. I was wrong though and it turned out to be a hefty walleye. You better believe this fish was released to do her spawning duties and grow bigger.
