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

October availability is as follows:  I have the 13th, 18th, 19 - 20th (1/2 days AM only,) 21st, 22nd, 23rd (PM Keuka,) 26th (1/2 day AM only,) 28th,  29th and 31st.  

Owasco Lake:  Action here is good to very good for lake trout. I can do full day trips here combining northern pike and lake trout fishing.   Smallmouth bass are also available. Yellow perch are hitting.

Cayuga Lake:  Fishing remains good for lake trout around Aurora.  This action should hold up well throughout early November at the very least (we catch them here all year long, including the winter months when launching is possible.)   Bass and pickerel fishing should be good to excellent up north.  Expect good perch fishing and whatever smallmouths we have around to start becoming more active. Propagation netting around Taughannock Park starts this Monday, October 5th.

Seneca Lake:  Expect good pike action here, with some smallmouth bass also around. Laker action is fair.  

The Watkins Glen pier is producing a variety of fish, depending on the day.  I wouldn't call it great fishing - it was slow for our classes but we encountered a nice Landlocked Atlantic Salmon on Monday and three nice pike on Tuesday. Bass and perch were reportedly in on Sunday.

Skaneateles Lake:  Smallmouth bass fishing should be good to excellent.   Lake trout fishing had been fair to good with fish widely distributed.  Perch and rockbass are also hitting.   

Otisco Lake:  I have not been out here lately.  Tiger Musky should be fair to good.  Bass fishing should be good. According to the DEC website, water levels have dropped here considerably.

Keuka Lake:  Lake trout fishing is reportedly picking up; the best is yet to come! Bass fishing should be good here.
