An Outdoor Channel film crew spent several days in Oswego County in early July, fishing for salmon and trophy-sized trout on Lake Ontario. Both boats are based at Wright’s Landing Marina in Oswego.
âThe fact that Outdoor Channel has two licensed outfitters based in Oswego is a testament to the fantastic fishing opportunities we have in Oswego County,â? said David Turner, director of the county’s community development, tourism and planning department. âWe are just entering the fall salmon season and we are already hearing about 36 lbs. salmon caught. It should be a very productive fall for anglers here in Oswego County.
