Central New York Fishing Report – December 13th, 2013

Lake Ontario: Steelhead and brown trout were being taken in the tributaries. Try egg imitations or egg sacs.

Oneida Lake: When weather allows, the shore bite for walleyes should still be going. Try casting stick baits just before and after dark. Some good areas are Sylvan Beach, Lower South Bay, Lewis Point, Oneida Shores and Bridgeport. Stickbaits in blue and silver, or black and silver usually work well for these walleye.

Oswego River: Recent flows have made shore fishing more difficult. Anglers in driftboats have been enjoying good action for brown trout and steelhead. Good baits are egg sacs (pink, white or chartreuse mesh), egg-imitating flies and plastics, and trout beads.

Salmon River: Conditions have been tougher of late with the fluctuating weather. Steelhead were still being taken throughout the river, with most of the fishing pressure still taking place in the upper river (from Pineville to the Upper Fly Zone). Bottom bouncing or float fishing with pink, blue or chartreuse egg sacs and bright colored egg patterns was catching steelhead. Other good baits have been Oregon cheese glo-bugs, flesh flies and tangerine beads.

Sodus and Irondequoit bays: When anglers can get out in boats, yellow perch were still being found in 25-30 feet of water and were hitting on minnows.
