The Fishing Season. - The Oswego River is now full of fish, and its banks are the resort of crowds of the disciples of Isaac Walton. Black Bass, Oswego Bass and Pike seem to be the principal takes, and quantities of them are secured every day. From the rising of the sun to the going down of the same, the piers are filled with anglers who find abundant reward for their pains, in the excitement of securing those splendid Black Bass which in that locality most do congregate.

On the piers minnows are principally used as bait, though worms may be used with moderate success when minnows cannot be obtained, which is very seldom. Up the river in the vicinity of Minetto, fly-fishing has commenced, though the cold weather which we have had during the spring has not been favorable. Next month those who are skilled in "throwing a fly," and we believe thee are many in our city, will have rare sport. In this connection we would say that Marshall has everything in the way of fishing tackle. His stock is very complete, and the man must be hard to please, who cannot be suited at his store. Go to Marshall's, secure a good outfit, and devote some of your leisure to the delightful sport of fishing.
