The Oswegatchie River

St. Lawrence County, NY
oswegatchie river surrounded by forest


The Oswegatchie River flows from Gouverneur to Ogdensburg where it meets the St. Lawrence River. There are more than 70 miles of water on the Oswegatchie that provide some great fishing opportunities. (Smallmouth Bass, Walleye)

Smallmouth Bass and  Walleye are the primary species of fish that are targeted on the Oswegatchie.

Smallmouth Bass respond well to live minnows and tube-jigs, and can be found near fallen trees and boulders that offer protection. 

Walleye can be taken on shallow-diving minnow plugs, as well as crawler-tip jigs. Cast towards dropoffs, quick currents and deep holes near the rapids for the best results.

Access to the water can be found at numerous sites along this river.
