Fishing on the Oswego River is great all year. The summer months provide fantastic bass and walleye fishing. The fall provides excellent trout and salmon fishing. During the winter months the steelhead reigns king. Spring fishing is also awesome as well. Spring time anglers on the river may encounter any and all species of fish that exist in the Lake Ontario waters

Breeseport beaver pond bass
  Nick Peterson caught his first fish Friday and it was bigger than he expected! He was fishing at Beaver Pond in Breesport, NY and he was using a night-crawler with a bobber. His father took the kids there hoping to catch a few sunfish and got a big surprise when he caught this largemouth. His son Josh also got his first fish ever but it wasn't quite as impressive a small sunny. From the smile on his face you can bet that dad will be taking these youngsters back to the pond real soon. Congrats Nick On an excellent catch!!

Largemouth Bass Fishing

  The two primary species of bass inhabiting N.Y. State waters are smallmouth and largemouth bass. Both species may be found in most all of the states lakes and rivers. The average bass caught is between 1 and 5 pounds, but there are many fish taken every year over 5 pounds. Bass fisherman by majority are a catch and release group so that affords this species a bit more protection than they would other wise receive.

  Smallmouth bass prefer deeper and colder water than largemouth bass which enables both species to coexist in the same environment without competing directly against each other. In rivers they prefer the faster moving water and will be found around large boulder or bridge abutments. Largemouth on the other hand prefer shallower and more turbid water and are often found in weedbeds and around fallen timber in the slower moving stretches of rivers.

  Both species will feed on minnows, crayfish, insects, worms, snails, frogs, or most anything that they can catch and swallow. This is one reason so many fisherman love bass fishing, because they are fairly easy to catch and will hit most any lure that invades their space.

  Tackle for bass fishing is as simple as you want it to be, or can be as complex as you want with many tournament fisherman having 5 or 6 rods all rigged with different lines and lures for certain fishing conditions. Most any medium action rod 6 foot in length and spooled with 10 or 12 pound test line would be sufficient for most fishing conditions.
