Come experience the best fishing the Finger Lakes have to offer!
This week of cold weather will finally get the Finger Lakes water temperatures into the upper 50s. That means good pike and bass fishing. Temps in the low 50s signal the serious start of Landlocked salmon casting and fly-casting on Cayuga and Seneca Lakes and rainbow trout/laker (as well as big perch) action on Skaneateles Lake.
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 is 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: Pickerel action is exceptional up north. It's prime time to cast and fly-cast for them. They are running the size of small pike - right up to 26"! Bass fishing should be decent. Perch action is improving by the week. Lake trout fishing varies by the day.
Seneca Lake: Expect pike action to pick up this week. 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 improving by the week for lake trout with some good to excellent angling for the usual 17" to 23" fish. 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: Expect good smallmouth bass fishing here with the perch and rainbow trout component increasing weekly.
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.
