Oswego River Fishing Report (12/2/18)

Water Level: 20,700 CFS

River Temp: 37 Degrees F

Turbidity: 10.9 FNU

The water level went up by 2,000 CFS since yesterday, river temp increased by 1.5 degrees over the past two days, and the turbidity dropped by 3 FNU over the past two days. The fish a fairly predictable with the high water conditions because most of the fish are consolidated in fewer spots, along the bank. One key to success seems to be showing up to a spot at the right time. There are windows that open up throughout the day when fish turn on, its just a matter of showing up to the right place at the right time. There have clearly been days when people who fished during the morning caught plenty more fish compared to people who fished in the afternoon, and vice versa.

Sean Williamson' PB brown, caught while float fishing a marabou jig yesterday.

Reports of browns, and steelhead are coming in every day, while walleye, lakers and kings are usually in the mix as well. Most guys are float fishing marabou jigs right now and producing all kinds of fish mentioned above. Some anglers have been swimming jigs along the bottom. Some anglers are bottom bouncing egg sacs. High water conditions haven't been ideal lately, but luckily, there has been a healthy population of trout in the Oswego River this fall and anglers are still catching fish.
