Central New York Fishing Report – October 4th, 2013

Lake Ontario: There were still plenty of salmon in the lake waiting to make their run into the rivers. Salmon were hitting flashers and flies, flashers and cut-bait and J-plugs. Fish were being found in 100-180 feet of water.

Oneida Lake: Yellow perch were being found in 10-20 feet of water, with good spots being around Big Bay, Dunham and Frenchman's Islands. Minnows, worms and small jigs have been working. The walleye bite has been slow, which may be a result of gizzard shad now large enough for the walleye to target.

Oswego River: A few more salmon have entered the river, along with a few brown trout. There are some salmon up to the dam. Good baits are egg-imitating flies and plastics, and also egg sacs or skein.

Salmon River: There were salmon being caught in the estuary, the lower and middle river and also in the Lower Fly Area (which opened on Sept. 15).

Sodus and Irondequoit bays: Fishing the outside weed edges continues to work for largemouths. Good baits have been crankbaits and plastic worms. A few northern pike were being caught, especially around the islands on Sodus
