Oswego is usually the first week of October they enter the river.

Pulaski you can catch the Coho run as early as the second week of September like this past year. Usually the first salmon enter Pulaski in the mid third week of September.

If you go up first or second week, rent a guide and boat.

Since the other part of my question got censored out how long does it take them to reach the falls of the Oswego, from when they enter the river?

I used to hit the "falls", about the 2nd or 3rd week of Oct. Was usually always a lot of fish. Harder to access now as I have heard that the LIDO island is closed. Used to be able to park there then just slide down the hill to the falls. I think it's only 3 miles up from the lake, not a far run. First day I would usually just try and get my 3 salmon to take home for people who wanted "meat", then concentrate on the browns, lakers, and steelies, that are usually up in the ripples before the falls.

I haven't been to the Oswego river in decades. I don't remember "falls" but I do remember a power plant wtih a big barrier across the river to hold back the water.

The river is only about a mile long. Generally the second week of October is your best bet. Alot depends on water conditions.

I agree. You can see the lake from the power plant. If you are on the wall.
