Oswego River report:

According to Capt. Kevin Davis of Catch the Drift:

Tuesday was another brown trout day on the river with some nice size fish being caught. Egg sacs are the choice of bait. The water level has been running between 3,000-4,000cfs for much of the week. The flow is not the best for us at this level. This morning started out a little slow but a double is making us hopeful for some action.

Salmon River report:

 According to Garrett Brancy of the Douglaston Salmon Run:

Anglers continue to report tough fishing in the beautiful conditions we had here in Pulaski. Some fishermen had a tougher go of it than others but most were able to get into a fish or two. Those guests that were most successful also covered the most ground. Diamond braid flies in Oregon cheese or pale yellow #8-12 picked up a few fish along with flies incorporating soft plastics eggs #8-10 or pink San Juan worms #8. 8mm retro-roe or egg-zacktly beads also picked up a fish here or there. The water flow will be running at 500cfs through Saturday.

 Oneida Lake report:

Although temperatures have not warmed up a lot, the daytime temperatures are expected to be in the 40s for the next few days. Ice fishing is over for the season and we are looking forward to some open water fishing before too long. A reminder that walleye season has closed and will reopen the first Saturday in May.


Sandy Pond report:

According to Dave Wood of Woody’s Tackle:

We are currently in the lull between ice fishing and open-water fishing. A reminder that walleye season has closed and will reopen the first Saturday in May.
