Salmon River Fishing Report 9/27/10
Things are in full swing in fish city and man is it busy.
The river is packed with more people than fish. We are having some decent days and yesterday was on fire where we were fishing yet other areas were very slow. Migratory fish, it is what it is!
Yesterday a steady stream of kingsmade their way upstream from the estuary. All the fish are now scattered top to bottom. The water is 5000 cfs a wonderful flow for this time of yeaqr. All the smaller area streams are low but it looks like the rain in the forecast may help.
If you are looking to get in on the action concentrate your efforts around Ellis Cove, The upper Trestle and the Sportsman pool areas are all holding good numbers of fish. Suggested baits are comet flies, nymph's, large stoneflies, streamers and blue egg sacs.
The Hatchery will be taking eggs soon and this is a great opportunity to spend some quality educational time with the family. Stop by and check it out.
Much cooler temperatures and some rain should help to improve the fishing in the Oswego river. As the water temperature drops more fish are likely to be moving up the river. Much of the activity continues to be from the Utica St. bridge to the powerhouse area. Egg sacs, skein, wooly buggers, egg pattern flies, rubber eggs and floating stickbaits are working well. There is a good number of trout throughout the river with egg sacs working well.
The Black River in Dexter is also getting some fish but water flows there are low. The best bet is to fish at night below the bridge with glow Hot N Tots and Kwikfish.
Cooler temperatures should help to cool the water temperature in Oneida Lake and will likely heat up the night bite for walleye. The inshore nighttime migration of bait up to now has been slow but the cooler weather should increase this activity. The bass are biting silver shiners drifted in the shallows.
We are getting some rain and hopefully this will trigger a major push of fish if they are out there to be pushed. We will see.
Russ brought his son Carl back for more medicine to cure the salmon fever. We hooked a few but only landed this one. Carl saved the day!
Then he slept!
Saturday Fernando and Clyde the Glide hiot the river with me., It was on for a few hours and we landed a bunch of salmon and a several nice trout.
Rob and Jim back again on there annual trip. This was the day to be here. Non-stop from beginning to end. Many, many hookups. It was an easy limit and a double digit day!!
Today we had Jim Noel and his son Jeremey along with two other Father- son teqams. Everyone hooked numerous fish but the action slowed by mid morning. We had a few real nice steelhead and some salmon. A good day to be a Dad and a son!
