oswego Oswego County Fishing Report for April 30, 2019

Recommended Posts

This report courtesy of the Oswego County Department of Community Development, Tourism and Planning. This report was written on April 30, 2019. 


Lake Ontario/Oswego River report:


According to Capt. Tom Burke of Cold Steel Sportfishing Charters:


Browns, browns and more browns! Then another handful of kings! Even with the heavy south winds the bite was on fire on Friday. Saturday Mother Nature kept us off the lake with a high winds.


According to Oz Angling Tackle:


The Oz has been running high for the past week and with the rain we received over the past few days, we can expect the river to be running high for at least another week. The current flow is 12,400cfs.


This high water is surely keeping trout in the river. There are steelhead all over the upper half of the river still. They are mixed in with a healthy number of smallmouth bass (catch and release only) as well.


The upper section of river is limited in regards to fishing spots with high water flows, most anglers are congregating in the lower half of the river from the 104 bridge to the mouth of the river. The lower section is producing smallmouth bass, brown trout, a few rainbows, and even a handful of kings.


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 via the link 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.
