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

Big thaw - then back to the freeze!

Now's the best time to book dates for 2018.  As for this winter's fishing, don't hesitate to try on short notice!  And as always, I have plenty of Gift Certificates available - give the gift of a day on the water for the holidays!

My old computer hard drive crashed earlier this fall, so I lost a lot of photos I would have put up online.  I am expecting to have some website updates done by my web-guy this winter, so I won't be posted any pics anytime soon. This site is due for a bit of an overhaul.

Cayuga Lake:  ​Casting and fly-casting is in top form for landlocked Atlantic salmon, brown trout and lake trout.  Lake trout jigging is generally good depending on the time of day and weather conditions. Shorecasting is producing lake trout and occasional salmon and browns.  Perch fishing is good. Water level is very low.

Seneca Lake:  ​Lake trout jigging is fair to good here out of Sampson.  Northern Pike fishing is good to very good. Perch fishing varies by the day but has generally been good.  Salmon/brown trout action should be fair to good out of Watkins Glen.                                  

Skaneateles Lake: Expect typical winter fishing here - rainbows and salmon in shallow and good perch action out deeper.  Launching at Mandana is possible.

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.
