Central New York Fishing Report – June 27th, 2014
Lake Ontario: Anglers were still getting mixed bag catches of brown trout, steelhead, chinooks and lake trout. A good starting point for the browns and chinooks has been trolling early in the morning in 40 to 80 feet of water with stick baits or spoons. For steelhead, fish higher in the water column with small red or orange spoons. Look for lake trout near bottom in 80 to 100 feet of water.
Oneida Lake: The walleye bite continued to be good for anglers jigging blade baits (gold or firetiger), or bucktail jigs tipped with nightcrawlers. Trolling with worm harnesses was also producing some ’eyes. Fish were being found in 15 to 30 feet of water. A few walleye were also still being taken by shore anglers casting jigs or stick baits after dark. Panfish were being taken around the lake on worms and small jigs. Chain pickerel fishing continued to be good.
Oswego River: Try fishing stick baits or jigs along the west river walk for walleye.
Sodus Bay: Northern pike are hitting on spoons fished around the bay. Bass anglers have been doing well, with a variety of baits working. Rock bass were hitting on worms in the shallows.
Sandy Pond: Northern pike were hitting on spoons or crankbaits, and a few walleye are also still being taken.
