oswego Oswego County Fishing Report for December 26, 2018

Recommended Posts

This report courtesy of the Oswego County Department of Community Development, Tourism and Planning. This report was written on December 26, 2018.


Oswego River report:


Although the water level was down under 13,000 cfs the end of last week, it increased on Saturday to just over 17,000 cfs. This afternoon it is flowing at 16,000 cfs.


According to Oz Angling Bait & Tackle:


Last week was a hit or miss week on the Oswego River. Early in the week the bite was pretty solid as anglers continued to find success catching browns, rainbows and a few walleyes on the lower east side behind the hotels using jigs or bottom bouncing egg sacs. The lower west side was also active casting lures. With the warmer temperatures the end of the week, things were lining up for a productive bite, however, anglers were reporting it was tough and many were working hard for a fish or two. Temperature increases this time of year that are significant and occur abruptly can sometimes leave the fish unsettled or unwilling to feed. Warmer temperatures are moving back in for Friday and Saturday and dropping into the 20s on Sunday.


Notice: The bridge to Leto Island is closed, and there are mandatory personal flotation device (PFD) zones on the river. For more information, view the Brookfield Varick Fish Safely Brochure below. The Oswego Fire Department offers loaner life jackets at no charge through its “Loaner for Life” program. For more information contact the fire station, 35 E. Cayuga St., at 315-343-2161.
