oswego Oswego County Fishing Report for May 6, 2019

Recommended Posts

This report courtesy of the Oswego County Department of Community Development, Tourism and Planning. This report was written on May 6, 2019.


Lake Ontario/Oswego River report:


According to Capt. Andy Bliss of Chasin’ Tail Adventures:


We started Saturday morning off with browns. Then switched over to salmon. On the afternoon trip we started for salmon and never left! Fishing remains excellent out of Oswego! UV tape Stingrays continue being our best lures. Many colors are working as long as they are UV.


According to Oz Angling Tackle:


It’s not typical to catch May chromers that haven’t spawned yet on the Oswego River. One beautiful fish came as a pleasant surprise after catching nothing but big smallmouth for a few hours. It looks like the trout will be in for a few more weeks before water temperatures increase and the flow drops. With the flow 10,300cfs, the lower river offers the most fishable water for shore anglers. Anglers who are interested in fishing the Oswego River for walleye should focus their efforts from the 104 Bridge to the mouth. If the walleye haven’t made a major push into the lower river yet, then they can be targeted in the harbor and along the lake shore.


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.
