Salmon River Reservoir
Redfield – Oswego County, NY
Salmon River Reservoir, often referred to as Redfield Reservoir, is a large remote water body located in Oswego County in the hamlet of Redfield.
It’s the best fishing hole totally within the borders of Oswego County. Boasting warm and cold water species, the place is best known for its superb largemouth bass and black crappie fisheries.
Set into deep woods on the west side of the Oswego County hamlet of Redfield, the 6.9-mile long Salmon River Reservoir spills over 2,260-acres. Fed by streams and springs pouring off the Tug Hill Plateau, one of the most remote and least developed regions of the state, its squeaky-clean waters average 20-feet deep and drop to a maximum depth of 57 feet.
