Open Dates in July:  1st, 3rd - 8th, 11th, 13 - 15th, 17th, 18th, 20th - 22nd, 27 - 28th, 31st.

Cayuga Lake:  Expect good to excellent fishing for lake trout, brown trout and landlocked salmon, though fish are starting to spread out. Both spinfishing and fly-fishing is productive for the salmon and brown trout. Lakers have been feeding heavily in deep water and are starting to move shallower. Some lake trout are feeding quite shallow i.e. in less than 20' of water, likely on gobies.

Seneca Lake:  Expect decent lake trout fishing from Sampson State Park north to Geneva. Expect fair salmon fishing with chances at big fish out of Watkins Glen.

Skaneateles Lake:  Expect good fishing here for rainbow trout and landlocked salmon. Mixed bag action is prime here in May with smallmouths, lake trout, big yellow perch added to` the mix.

Owasco Lake:  Perch fishing was and still should be very good here.  Lake trout action should be fair to good.  Expect some decent brown trout and rainbow trout fishing here this year.

Keuka Lake:  Lake trout fishing is reported good in Branchport in various depths. This will be an interesting year on Keuka.  Friends that fish the lake often haven't seen an alewife in a fish stomach since the winter of 2014/15!  

If you're interested in learning how to fly-fish or a guiding stream fly-fishing trip,  my friend Eric is available.  He fishes Central NY and the southern tier and has been getting out and catching some nice fish.  He's also a terrific fly-tyer in case you need some flies.   (607)227-2281 is his phone number.  is the website.
