Come experience the best fishing the Finger Lakes have to offer!
Water temperatures in the Finger Lakes are in the 50s. That means good pike and bass fishing. Early next week we should see water temps in the low 50s and that should get Skaneateles Lake rainbow trout fishing in full swing. Look towards mid-November for the start of Landlocked Salmon casting/fly-casting action.
Book with confidence - if the weather isn't good for what we want to do, we reschedule or you receive your deposit back, so it never hurts to reserve a date.
Owasco Lake: Lake trout action has been good to excellent lakewide. Pike action is good and will only get better. Smallmouth bass, largemouth bass and yellow perch are also hitting.
Cayuga Lake: Pike action is just getting underway. I'm cautiously optimistic about this season's pikin' prognosis on Cayuga. Smallmouths and largemouth bass are active. Expect good pickerel action up north. Perch have invaded the shallows in a lot of areas.
Seneca Lake: Expect good pike action. Perch are active. Smallmouth bass fishing is available out of Watkins Glen. I usually lay off the lakers on Seneca Lake this time of year, though on occasion I will target them, but overall it's spawn time over there and I prefer to target pre-spawn fish elsewhere.
Keuka Lake: Fishing here is good to excellent for lake trout. The Branchport Arm has been hot lately. Bass fishing is good with some fish moving shallow. Pickerel and occasional pike are available. The lake association has decided to keep the lake level up through early November - that will make things easier for launching boats.
Skaneateles Lake: Smallmouth bass and yellow perch fishing is good. Lake trout, rainbow trout and Landlocked salmon fishing is just getting underway.
Otisco Lake: Tiger Musky fishing this season has probably been the best I've seen since I've been fishing the lake semi-regularly (since around 2002 or '03) and largemouth bass fishing is good. Water levels are low.
