Central New York Fishing Report – June 14th, 2013
Lake Ontario: Brown trout continued to be scattered after the variable winds we've had the last few weeks. If you can find some off colored water, try fishing stick baits and small spoons in the area during the early morning. As the day gets brighter, moving to 40 feet or deeper water has been helping to extend the brown trout bite. Some salmon have been hitting flasher and flies and spoons fished 80 feet down over 150 feet of water.
Oneida Lake: Walleye were being taken in 15 to 35 feet of water with bucktail jigs tipped with nightcrawler or blade baits working. Shore anglers were still getting some walleye on stick baits or jigs just before and after dark.
Oswego River: Some walleye were being taken in the river on large stick baits, jigs and nightcrawlers. Trolling after dark in the harbor with large stick baits was producing some walleye.
Salmon River: Fishing has been slowing down on the river, which is normal for this time of year. There were smallmouth bass and rock bass being caught in the lower river.
Sodus Bay: Anglers fishing the deeper water were still getting some yellow perch. Bluegill fishing has picked up as the spawn has started. Northern pike fishing has been good, with pike hitting a variety of lures. Stick baits and spoons are good bets. Bass fishing has also been good, with bass jigs, plastics and topwaters all working.
Irondequoit Bay: Anglers fishing the deeper water areas were getting some larger yellow perch. Northern pike were hitting on spoons and stick baits. Bass were hitting on bass jigs, a variety of plastics, spinnerbaits and topwaters.
Sandy Pond: A few walleye and northern pike were being caught. Anglers were also getting some black crappie, bluegills and yellow perch
