Central New York Fishing Report – November 1st, 2013

Lake Ontario: Anglers casting spoons or egg sacs off piers were catching salmon and also a few brown trout.

Oneida Lake: Yellow perch were still being found in 10-20 feet of water, with minnows, worms and small jigs working. The shore walleye bite has started to pick up and fish were being caught by anglers casting stick baits just before and after dark.

Oswego River: Salmon were still being caught throughout the river and more steelhead and brown trout were showing up. Good baits were egg-imitating flies, beads and plastics, and also egg sacs or skein.

Salmon River:  Most of the salmon action was in the upper river. Many of the salmon were still actively spawning in the riffle areas. After spawning, Pacific salmon (chinook and coho) die, so each day there will be fewer and fewer of them in the river. More steelhead and brown trout were being caught in the lower river and those fish will also be working their way into the upper river. Good baits have been beads, egg sacs, egg-imitating flies and various streamers.

Sodus and Irondequoit bays: Bass fishing has slowed, but fishing spinnerbaits in 15-20 foot of water has been working. Though fewer bass are being caught, the ones being caught have been nice-sized. Some northern pike were also starting to hit in the bays. Yellow perch were being found in 30 feet of water in Sodus, and were hitting on minnows.
