2014 Season Highlights
Super Spring Fishing
Early April Browns, 2014

Nate Forbes and his crew from Maine with part of their catch boated on April 19.

Brown trout fishing in early April was great, exactly what we’ve come to expect fishing out of Oswego Harbor in the influence of the warm river plume extending out into the frigid water of the lake. The first few trips Fish Doctor anglers boated between 30 and 40 browns per trip. Black and silver stickbaits and spoons were the ticket

First king of the Season, 4-25-14

The 2014 salmon season started early for Fish Doctor anglers when Chelsea from Maine boated an early season king just outside Oswego Harbor. It hit a silver glo dodger and green crinkle fly fished just off bottom in 30 feet of water.

A shallow water, light tackle king started off the salmon season with a bang!

May Salmon Fishing!!!

One of many nice catches of kings in May, 2014.

When the Lake Ontario fishing season starts in the spring, you never know for sure what to expect. In 2014 I couldn’t have imagined early season salmon fishing any better. Major catches of kings were the rule, just outside Oswego Harbor. What fishing!!! Riggers, slide divers, and stickbaits off the boards produced in 30-40 feet of water.

June…, More Early Season Salmon Fishing

Salmon fishing was hot and heavy in early June with kings still not far from Oswego Harbor. Alewives were stacked up inshore and the kings were concentrated just outside them. The first light bite was nonstop, but then you had to work for them. Ask Karl Schmidt. He and his crew boated 8 kings and a lake trout by 6:30 AM on June 7, and it took them the rest of their trip to boat their limit.

An old favorite called the “Stick” produced lots of kings in June.

Late June..., surface steelhead and lakers.

Angie and Dave Brown from New Hampshire with one of many steelhead they boated on the afternoon of 6/20/14

Offshore temps in the 40s on the outside edge of temperature breaks produced some of the finest surface steelhead and lake trout fishing I've seen in years. Morning and afternoon trips all produced. Multiple leadcore rigs fished off megaboards were deadly.
