oswego Oswego County Fishing Report for August 22, 2019: Free Fishing, Limit Catches, and More

Recommended Posts

This report courtesy of the Oswego County Department of Community Development, Tourism and Planning. This report was written on August 22, 2019.


Notice: Due to high water levels, a local state of emergency order for a “No Wake Zone” has been established for boats 1,000 feet from the Lake Ontario shoreline and tributaries. All motorized boats within 1,000 feet of the shoreline and within these waterways must operate at an idle speed.


Notice: Now through Labor Day, New York State is offering free fishing on Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River. Also, 30 state parks along the shores are offering half-price vehicle entry and camping. 


Lake Ontario/Oswego River report:


According to Capt. Andy Bliss on Cold Steel Sportfishing Charters:


Fish are really scattered in 80-600+ feet of water.  The best advice is to start your troll heading north until you find some fish and work them.  We are catching them from 45-120 feet down. Spoons and meat rigs have been the most consistent but flies are going to become the mainstay over the next 5-10 days.


According to Capt. Troy Creasy of High Adventure Sportfishing Charters:


We had to sit at the dock early Wednesday morning and wait for the storms to pass. Once the lightning had cleared the area we headed out and it was one of the most ferocious bites of the season. After an hour of searching, 15 fish hit the deck as fast as we could set the lines. We hit the dock with a four-man limit just a few hours after we left.
