Oswego County Tourism Office Is Developing New Fishing and Hunting Brochure

The Oswego County Division of Promotion and Tourism will highlight Oswego County's world-class sportfishing and excellent hunting opportunities in its new “Fishing and Hunting in Oswego County” brochure being published this spring. Licensed charter captains, river guides, hunting guides, taxidermists, marinas and tackle shops still have time to be included in the full-color, 34-page guide.

“No less than 10 world and state record fish - from a 47-lb., 13-oz. Chinook salmon to a 9-lb., 3-oz. greater redhorse - have been caught in Oswego County waters,” said David Turner, director of the Department of Community Development, Tourism and Planning. “Our new publication will highlight Oswego County's year-round fishing and hunting opportunities, and will include free listings for charters, fishing and hunting guides, bait and tackle shops, marinas and launch sites, fishing and hunting preserves, sporting clubs and archery ranges.”

More than 25,000 copies will be distributed annually at sportsmen's shows and mailings to consumers in the U.S., Canada and beyond. The new publication will also be posted on the Oswego County tourism Web site at www.visitoswegocounty.com

“This is an excellent marketing opportunity,” said Turner. “Our staff has mailed information about the new brochure to hundreds of tourism businesses in Oswego County. We want to extend this opportunity to new businesses and anyone else we may have missed. We offer free listings, and paid advertisements are also available.”

For more information, contact the Division of Promotion and Tourism at 349-8322 or 1-800-596-3200, ext. 8322 or by . The deadline to submit information is Feb. 16.
