Phenomenal Oswego County Brown Trout Fishing Show Airs April 5 on WFN

OSWEGO COUNTY, NY – “Outdoor Passion” television host and producer Ray Carignan’s enthusiasm for fishing is contagious, and viewers will get a glimpse of the phenomenal brown trout fishing that Carignan experienced in Oswego County on “The Early Summer Brown Trout Run in Oswego County” airing in April on the World Television Network.

Carignan, host of the Montreal-based “Outdoor Passion” weekly television series, fished with Capt. Kevin Keller of Fishchopper Charters last June out of Mexico Bay. The episode will air on the World Fishing Network Saturday, April 5 at 9:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m., Thursday, April 10 at noon and 9 p.m., and Friday, April 11, at 2 a.m. “If you love early summer brown trout fishing, you must watch this show,” said Carignan. “Fishing for big brown trout is a challenge. They are smart.” The group caught their limit both days trolling for mid-depth brown trout with Capt. Keller off Mexico Bay.

“This world class fishery is full of excitement and fun - a great family outing,” said Keller.

Carignan and his cameraman, Claude Roulleau, also visited the Salmon River Fish Hatchery, Salmon River Falls and Sandy Island Beach on their visit to Oswego County, where they were hosted by Wally and Cheryl Kimmel, owners of Catfish Creek Fishing Camps, http://www.catfishcreek.com/ (315-963-7310). “Outdoor Passion” has received numerous awards, including eight “Golden Moose” awards for best outdoor series in North America.
