Chaumont Bay, Henderson Bay, Sodus Point, Sandy Pond and Black Lake

Troy Creasy

Chaumont Bay, Henderson Bay, Sodus Point, Sandy Pond and Black Lake continue to produce great catches of perch.

Sandy Pond is giving up some nice size pike as well.  Large shiners and jigs in 10 to 20 FOW are working best

On Oneida lake Reports of good to excellent walleye and perch catches are coming in from Dunham and Frenchman Islands, Buoy 121 and to the east at Lewis Point. Most anglers are jigging with Swedish Pimples dressed with a buckeye minnow or a jigging Rapala enhanced with bait. The sonar is also accounting for a few walleyes. Yellow perch are responding to mousies and spikes fished with more finesse than the typical heavy handed jigging for walleyes.

The water level on the Oswego river is a about 7500 cfs and rising with the recent warm spell. Steelhead and brown trout are taking worms, minnows, egg sacs and white bucktail jigs.

The Salmon River is running a low 285cfs but there are plenty of fish from top to bottom just waiting to be caught. The warm weather the last few days have opened up a few spots and the river is really busy with a ton of people suffering from cabin fever. If you don’t like crowds you may want to wait a week until the holiday traffic is gone. Fish egg sacs, beads and small flies in blue, pink, orange and white.
