The best way to experience fishing in Oswego is to book a private charter with a licensed fishing guide. See the full list of charters available for online booking here: List of fishing charters in Oswego, New York.

The most popular fish species you can target are Brown Trout, Salmon (Chinook), and Lake Trout. Top fishing techniques include trolling, light tackle, and heavy tackle. Lake fishing, nearshore fishing, and inshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

The Lake Ontario fishing season welcomes you with open arms. From fierce Salmon and Brown Trout to large (very large!) Lake Trout out in deeper waters, there something for everyone. Check availability for local fishing charters in Oswego.

If you’re looking to explore the smallest of the Great Lakes, an Oswego fishing trip is a great choice. Few freshwater fishing opportunities in the States can beat tackling mighty Lake Ontario, drifting its tributaries, and discovering the area’s many rivers and lakes. And if that’s not enough to get you packing your bags, your list of potential targets is bound to.

What you’ll catch will depend on when and where you’re fishing. Expect to hook Chinook and Coho Salmon, Steelhead and Brown Trout, Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, and Northern Pike in Lake Ontario, the Oswego River, or the Salmon River at different times of the year. Head to Lake Oneida and you’ll experience premier Walleye fishing, as well as great ice fishing.

When it comes to choosing a trip, it depends on your desires and targets. If you’re fishing in the late summer and early fall, head out on a full day trip for your best shot at Salmon. If you’re looking to introduce the family to fishing, and are hoping to land a few Trout or Bass along the way, a half day trip is a good choice.

Oswego is a maze of waterways and there are charters dotted all around town. For easy access to both the Oswego River and Lake Ontario, head to Wrights Landing Marina. The stretch between Utica Street Bridge and the Varvick Dam also offers productive fishing. Just be aware water flow changes are common here and can create tricky conditions.

January

Head to the Oswego and Salmon Rivers to enjoy a quiet and relaxing day on the water. Steelhead can be hooked in good numbers in the upper end of the Salmon River.

February

Hop aboard a drift boat to find Brown Trout and Steelhead on the Oswego River. The Salmon River is also a productive zone to check out for these fish. 

March

Spawned out Steelies are start leaving the Salmon River and head into Lake Ontario. You'll also find Brown Trout along the lake's shorelines. 

April

What can keep your rods moving if not large Brown and Lake Trout? Head into Lake Ontario's inshore waters for Brownies and into deeper waters to big Lakers. 

May

The Lake Ontario fishing season welcomes you with open arms. From fierce Salmon and Brown Trout to large (very large!) Lake Trout out in deeper waters, there something for everyone.

June

Brown Trout are hanging out nearshore. The warmer waters agree with them and they're eager to bite. You'll also find Chinook Salmon in the lakes offshore waters. 

July

Oswego River fishing offers up Walleye and Smallmouth Bass in good numbers. Lake Ontario fishing is nothing short of excellent, producing a number or large Chinook Salmon.

August

This is one of the best months to fish Lake Ontario. Chinook Salmon are biting actively as they start to make their move towards shallower waters. If you're chasing Bass, this is a great time to go after Smallmouth.

September

Reel-screaming Kings test your stamina, and Coho aren't far behind! For best results, head to the lakes tributaries. And don’t forget about Steelhead! These fish come through later in the month. 

October

Lake Ontario fishing is winding down, but the Oswego River, Salmon River, and Oneida Lake are on fire. Take advantage of the last of the Chinook and Coho Salmon. Bass and Trout are also on the cards!

November

Experienced anglers should head into the Salmon River to try their luck against Steehlead. Looking to hook Walleye? There's no better fishery than Oneida Lake.

December

The season has slowly down significantly, but you can still hook into Steelhead and Brown Trout in the tributaries. If the conditions are good, head to Lake Onieda to cast for Walleye.

To be patient while fishing because every day is definitely different. It may have some periods of waiting for a bite, but the Captain and 1st mate will never stop searching for a great spot.

The spring is for trout and maybe a stray Salmon here or there if you go to Oswego you will catch a fish. The Fall season is for Salmon both seasons are an incredible time.

Sunscreen, plenty of refreshments to keep hydrated and make sure to take the appropriate measures if you get seasick. Also make sure you get your fishing license before you get onto the boat

Where do I start? I had to rearrange this trip because of a change in travel plans and Capt. Stephen worked with me the entire time. He was very knowledgeable and very patient. I lost 4 fish and was feeling discouraged but Capt. Stephen helped me to adjust my technique and I went on to catch my limit, including an 18lb King Salmon. I can't wait to book my next trip!

Captain Eric and RJ were a couple of great guys that kept us on the fish. Check them out on Facebook and see our photos. We highly recommend “Hooking Up” with them for your future charters, we will be making this an annual trip for another great day of catching and another full cooler.

Had a great time. Yes, we caught a lot of fish, but it wouldn’t have been nearly as fun without the hospitality and company of captain Jim and Tommy. My brother and I highly recommend, and would love to book with them again.

These 4 brothers had a great time. Fishing wasn’t too great but Captain Brent gave them a great trip and tried really hard to find fish in a uncooperative Lake. Thank you for a great time! We will book again!

Took my son on a fishing charter with Captain Paul. Couldn't have had a better time. Everything worked out perfectly, we caught fish, enjoyed a comfortable day on Lake Ontario and learned much from the Captain. When we visit Oswego again, we will be scheduling another charter with Captain Paul and Knotlost. Thanks Captain!

Fishing was slow, but no fault of Captain Tom and first Mate Jim, they threw everything but the kitchen sink at them to try and get us fish! Will definitely give it another shot later in the year! Still had a great time! That's how it is with Trout and Salmon...That's why we call it fishing not catching! Listening to the CB, slow everywhere out there today by all Charters! Guaranteed they didn't try as hard as Tom and Jim!
