Lake Ontario, Oneida Lake Salmon River Fishing Report 7/20/ 11
The salmon fishing on Lake Ontario is Red Hot!
North to the Shipping lanes and west to Fairhaven the eastern basin of Lake Ontario is choked with large numbers of bait, spoon and fly gobbling Chinook salmon. The largest concentration of fish seems to be between west of Oswego & north of Pulaski in 120 to 220 FOW.
The last few weeks aboard the High Adventure it has been Bang Tango with double figures just about every trip out.
Run E-Chip & Dreamweaver flashers in green, white, chrome & mountain dew.
Top Atomik flies have been the sweetpea, pro-am, glow hammer & Big Fin Glow. The fish will come up into the warm water to feed, so don’t be afraid to run your offerings up in that 60 to 70 degree water as well as in the ice.
Browns, lakers and a few steelhead have been adding to the entertainment factor. Other than the occasional blow things are alive and happening on the big pond.
Russ and Sue had a tremendous day with weather and fish including several triples and this nice double!!
Oneida Lake anglers are continuing to do very well on walleye and bass. The deep and shallow water are both producing. Shackelton Shoals, Dutchman’s Bar and Lewis Point have been especially active.
The fish are biting on the Oswego River, fish with worms, jigs and minnows. There is a variety of fish throughout the river including catfish, sheepshead, bass, and walleye. Smallmouth Bass are still active along the shoreline as well.
Sandy pond continues to produce good catches of bass and pike. Tie on a white or chartreuse spinner bait and just pound the weedlines. You will find plenty of action there.
See you on the water!
