Come experience the best fishing the Finger Lakes have to offer!  

Fishing continues to be good throughout the area.  The super-hot laker bite of the past two weeks has subsided, but action remains solid.   The cool summer weather continues with a strong cold front moving in tonight and tomorrow.  We'll see how that affects the fishing.

If you plan on doing a trip in August, don't wait - now's the time to reserve a day!  This is what I have left:   Full or Half Days - August 10, 19, 26, 28 and 31st.  I have 1/2 days available some other days as well, mainly on Skaneateles and Cayuga, so please email or call if you have a different date in mind.   Once a few more days book up, that'll be it for August.  Time is flying by and September and October are around the corner.  Unreal....

For future reference, I expect good to very good fall pike fishing starting in late September.   Keuka and Owasco Lakes provide great fall laker jigging.   Landlocked salmon fishing gets going in November on Cayuga and Seneca Lakes.  

Cayuga Lake: Lake trout fishing has been very solid out of Long Point lately!  In general, the laker jigging has been good to very good throughout the lake, though the Long Point area has provided a better "all day long" bite, whereas the midlake areas have been slowing down markedly by mid-morning.   I'll be checking on bass fishing this week, but the cold front conditions may make for a tougher bite.

Seneca Lake:  Lake trout numbers remain good to excellent on the Geneva flats; fishing varies by the day and oftentimes hour.  Anywhere from 50' to 120' has been hot.  A few bonus browns/salmon are around the north end of the lake.

Skaneateles Lake: Smallmouth bass fishing has been good to very good and the dropshot rig is producing along with the usual tubes and flukes.   Lake trout can be jigged here, though fish on average are much smaller than the other lakes.

Owasco Lake:  Lake trout action had been good to excellent with plenty of fish on the north end flats. Smallmouth bass action should be fair to good. 

Keuka Lake: Laker action is reportedly slow with a short bite window for around an hour after sunrise and that's it.   Bass and pickerel action should be good.

Sodus Bay:  Gar fishing is in full swing.  The bay looks to be in fine shape.
