Have to ask, everyone I spoke with that fished and even the online reports said very few fish. This was the first weekend out of the last 5 I didn't head up. Estuary is pretty much empty and even DSR saying little fish movement. The hatchery is full. The salmon have been entering the river since Labor Day, no big runs just a steady trickle. The run is over. Last week they did get some rain up there which caused some fish to finally run up the smaller tribs, which were packed with fishermen more so than I've ever seen. I blame the internet for that.
Not sure what happened to Oswego this season. I fished there a couple times, very few fish. They never had any kind of big pushes there whatsoever. Never been to the Oak, too far. Very poor year for me. Yes, I caught some fish but nowhere near what I have in the past and I've been fishing up there for a very long time.
