Oswego River report:
According to Larry Muroski of Larry’s Oswego Salmon Shop:
With the heavy rainfall the area has received the water level is up over 8,000cfs this morning. Anglers are still finding some salmon and the higher water has brought in a good number of nice chrome steelhead along with a few rainbows. Just remember that steelhead or rainbows must be 21 inches long and there is a one per day limit. Trout are hitting patcxe cured skein, beads and egg sacs.Just remember that steelhead or rainbows must be 21 inches long and there is a one per day limit.

According to Capt. Kevin Davis of Catch the Drift:
Snow, sleet, hail, rain and wind…Thursday was a perfect day to crush the steelhead! Many hooked and many landed for an easy double-digit day.
Lake Ontario report:
The lake fishing report has ended for the season.
Pulaski area/Salmon River report:
According to Whitaker’s Sport Shop & Motel:
We got mixed reports from anglers, depending on where they fished; some groups did well, while others had a tough day. The anglers we spoke with who fished some of the smaller local tributaries reported having a good day with a mix of kings and steelhead. In the upper end of the river anglers reported getting into kings and a few steelhead in Sportsman, Pineville, Trestle, Ellis Cove, Wire Hole and the Upper/Lower Fly Zone.
According to Garrett Brancy of the Douglaston Salmon Run:
As you might imagine weather and water conditions made angling difficult yesterday. We did have a handful of hardy anglers brave the on and off rain, sleet, snow, and hail.. (did I mention the wind?) in pursuit of steel but only a few were rewarded. The water flow is scheduled to remain at 1,200 cfs through today according to the water line. Hopefully after a day of adjustment a few more fish will be active today.

Oneida Lake report:
Anglers are finding some perch in 10-20 feet of water when conditions let them on the water. The night bite for walleye is picking up with the cooler temperatures. Shore anglers are using stickbaits successfully.

Sandy Pond report:
According to Dave Wood of Woody’s Tackle:
Things are quiet on the pond this time of year until much colder temperatures move in and we get some ice.
