Hotline To Oswego County Fishing

As part of its ongoing program to inform visitors about Oswego County, the Oswego County Tourism Office has launched a new fishing blog, “Hotline to Oswego County Fishing.”  Authored by Capt. Andy Bliss, the blog will cover Oswego County’s fantastic variety of year-round angling opportunities with tips for beginners to experts. For example, learn when Steelhead enters tributaries and the best time to take your handy fishing to catch them!

“We’re always looking for new ways to engage readers and drive visitors to Oswego County,” said Dave Turner, director of the County Department of Community Development, Tourism and Planning. “Capt. Andy has worked with many local charter captains and will draw on his experience to share information about fishing Lake Ontario, its tributary streams and nearby waters.”

The first post covers winter steelhead activity on the Oswego and Salmon rivers.
