Lake Ontario: Salmon were still deep and were being caught 100 to 130 feet down over 400 to 500 feet of water.
Oneida Lake: Some walleye were being taken in 30 to 40 feet of water with stick baits, blade baits (gold or fire tiger), bucktail jigs tipped with nightcrawlers, and worm harnesses. Bass fishing continued to be good for anglers fishing around the shoals with drop-shot rigs or tubes.
Oswego River: Little has changed from last issue’s report, with freshwater drum (sheepshead), channel catfish and smallmouth bass being taken in the river. Try crayfish for the sheepshead and bass, and worms or cut-bait for the catfish.
Remember, the bridge to Leto Island is closed, and there are mandatory personal flotation device (PFD) zones on the river.
Salmon River: No activity to report of late, but it shouldn't be too long before a few salmon start showing up.
Sodus and Irondequoit bays: Bass were still providing good action for anglers fishing along the weed edges with a variety of baits. Fishing topwaters above the vegetation was also productive.
Sandy Pond: Fishing has slowed on the pond as vegetation has made fishing more difficult. There were still some largemouth bass being taken.
