Oswego - October 9-12 2006

Another year and another salmon trip to the Oswego River! We spent 4 days in Oswego NY to fish for King Salmon. On Monday we fished the Salmon River in the afternoon for about an hour - it was the normal Zoo up at Altmar and we managed just one brief hookup.

On the 10th and 11th we fished on the Oswego River with Kevin Davis of Catch-The-Drift and over 2 sessions we caught a ton of Kings, numerous Rainbows, a couple of Browns and 2 Steelhead, not including the 3 beauties that I either broke off or was too dumb to keep on the line. Sigh!

Pammy even caught her very first salmon, without a guide from the shore of Leto's Island - on light tackle (8lb) too - pretty cool.

On Thursday, after a night of rain we drove to the Maxwell, only to be disappointed by its typical lack of water. There were a few salmon, but the water was the lowest I've ever seen it. All in all, a pretty nice trip!
