Oswego River Fishing Report (11/24/18)

Water Level: 8,330 CFS

River Temp: 36.5 Degrees F

Turbidity: 5.4 NFU

The Oswego River continues to run high for this time of year. Typical flows are around 6,500 CFS according to historical averages. Anglers have been catching mostly Brown Trout and Steelhead in the upper half of the river (Utica Street Bridge to the Varick Dam). Egg sacs and beads seem to be producing the best results, however, the marabou jig bite is heating up with the King Salmon spawn coming to an end. A number of Atlantic Salmon have been caught over the past couple of weeks, which is very cool considering they are usually hard to come by in the Oswego River. The Atlantics are being caught by float fisherman on beads and egg sacs. Most have been of the smaller variety, the biggest we've seen is about a 6 pounder. Lake Trout are also being caught by anglers in the lower section of the river while targeting Browns and Steelhead. Remember that Lakers are out of season right now so they must be released if you catch one. Walleyes are being caught on the lower east side of the river, behind the hotels, on marabou jigs and buck-tail jigs. Keep an eye on the water level over the days to come, we may see a drop in the flow which will open up another opportunity to target trout off the walls.
