oswego Oswego County Fishing Report for April 8, 2019

Recommended Posts

This report courtesy of the Oswego County Department of Community Development, Tourism and Planning. This report was written on April 8, 2019.


Oswego River/Lake Ontario report:


According to Oz Angling Tackle:

Trout fishing is the name of the game on the Oswego River right now. Steelhead and brown trout are being caught along the entire river. Anglers venturing up near the dam are having success using jigs, egg sacs, and beads while anglers fishing the lower river are catching mostly brown trout on jigs, swimbaits, and spoons. Some anglers are starting to use night crawlers as well, which can be a big difference maker on those days when it’s a relatively slow trout bite. At the current flow, these trout can comfortably hold throughout the entire river. The lower east side behind the hotels and the entire west side of the river are all worth fishing. The water flow is currently 8,550cfs.


According to Capt. Andy Grisenthwaite of Broad Horizon Charters:

The 2019 lake season is underway! Browns were plentiful yesterday out of Oswego. We also got some surprise Atlantics. Smithwicks and Yozuri’s on one side and spoons on the other kept us pretty busy.


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.
