Central New York Fishing Report – July 10th, 2015

Lake Ontario: Anglers were still getting some nice brown trout in 40 to 60 feet of water on stick baits or spoons, with early morning offering the best action. If surface conditions are calm try using side planers to get the stick baits away from the boat. For lake trout, troll cowbells and peanuts (small plugs) near bottom in 100 to 200 feet of water. Steelhead were hitting small spoons fished 40 feet down over 200 foot of water. Chinook salmon have become more scattered and have been difficult to target and catch over the last few weeks. Salmon were being found from 100 to 350 feet of water.

Oneida Lake: Use caution with the lake running high and turbid from the recent rains; there may debris floating around. Look for bass in 5 to 10 feet of water with crankbaits, tube jigs, chatterbaits, swimbaits and bass jigs. For walleye, try jigs tipped with night crawlers, or blade style baits in 15 to 20 feet of water for starters.

Oswego River: High flows, which is no surprise given the recent rains. Not much happening.

Salmon River: There were some smallmouth bass being taken in the lower river when flows allowed.

Sodus and Irondequoit bays: Try spinnerbaits or topwaters over the weedbeds. If not catching bass that way, try going to the outside weed edge and fishing crankbaits or rubber worms.

Sandy Pond: Northern pike were being taken on stick baits, as were a few walleye. Bluegill were hitting near shore on worms or small jigs.
