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

Water temperatures remain above normal for this time of year.  The cool down in late-August/early September followed by near record heat has slowed the development of fall patterns.

Open dates in October are as follows:  28th.

Open dates in November:  All of November is available with the exception of 11/2 - 3rd, 10th, 18th and 22nd.

Owasco Lake:  ​Lake trout fishing is good to excellent.  Bass and pike are hitting.  Perch action is good.

Cayuga Lake:  ​Expect good lake trout fishing here, especially out of Long Point and north.  Salmon and brown trout (along with a few rainbows) are staging around creek mouths.  Pickerel and bass action is good.  Perch action should be picking up.

Skaneateles Lake: ​Expect good smallmouth bass fishing along with some yellow perch. Rainbow trout and lake trout will gradually appear in the nearshore mix over the next few weeks.

Seneca Lake: ​I expect fair to good northern pike fishing here.  Plenty of small smallmouth bass and some perch are around the lake's south end.  Occasional salmon can be caught off of the Watkins Glen Pier.

Keuka Lake: Lake trout fishing should be picking up here.  Expect good action on perch, pickerel and bass.

Otisco Lake: No recent reports here but I'd expect fair to good Tiger Musky fishing and decent bass action.

FOR SALE:  DIAMONDBACK DIAMONDFLY:  This is a 9' 6 weight rod that I received direct from Cortland as a warranty replacement for a Diamondback Backwater Rod that I broke. It is in mint/brand new condition with a rod tube.  Gorgeous rod.  Medium/fast action. They retail for just under $300.  To me they feel/fish more like a $200 rod - so that's my asking price:  $200.
