Early March 2015

Canandaigua Lake - More of the lake has frozen over and anglers getting out to deeper water are catching lake trout jigging with spoons or plastics.

Keuka Lake - Anglers fishing near the Keuka Lake State park are getting lake trout jigging in 100 foot of water with spoons or plastics.

Oneida Lake, Sandy Pond, Whitney Point Reservoir, Otisco Lake and Cayuga Lake -Travel on the ice continues to be very difficult with the deep snow and slush. Because of that there is no new information to report.

Oswego River - The river is down from last week and is flowing at 3,100 cubic feet per second (cfs) as of 02/27. The cold temperatures have once again made fishing difficult this week, so few anglers have been out. Because of that there is no new information to report.
Remember, the bridge to Leto Island is closed, and there are mandatory personal flotation device (PFD) zones on the river. Visit Oswego County Tourism web site for more information on this and also for information on the life jacket loaner programs in the area.

Owasco Lake - Owasco is also frozen over and anglers are fishing both ends and also around Ensenore Point. Walking has been difficult on the north and south ends due to snow and slush.

Salmon River - The flow is the same as last week and is 285 cfs as of 02/27. The cold temperatures continue to make fishing difficult and few anglers have been out so no new information to report this week.

Seneca Lake - No new information.

Skaneateles Lake - The entire lake is frozen over, which is extremely rare for Skaneateles Lake. Anglers are fishing both the north and south ends.

Sodus and Irondequoit Bays - As everywhere else, recent snow events and slush have made travel very difficult on the ice. Because of that there is no new information to report.
