Fishing & Hunting

Few areas in the Northeast offer the quality and diversity of fishing found in Oswego County. From trolling on Lake Ontario for trophy trout, salmon and walleyes to fly fishing for wild brook trout in a freestone stream tucked away in the wilderness of the Tug Hill Plateau, Oswego County offers angling opportunities unmatched in New York State.

Hunting in Oswego County is one of northern New York State’s best kept secrets. Bountiful wildlife populations, including whitetail deer, turkey, waterfowl, grouse, snowshoe hare and other upland game provide fine hunting. Pheasant hunting is also available in some stocked areas. Bow hunting for carp up to 40 lbs. is popular, especially during the late spring spawning season.
