Fish Species

Carp

Carp

I think fishermen take carp for granted. They are so abundant in the area (and throughout the country) that many people don't value them.

Channel Catfish

Channel Catfish

Channel Catfish are found in pockets throughout the region. To the best of my knowledge, none of the Fingerlakes have large populations of them.

Walleye

Walleye

Walleyes are common in Conesus and and uncommon in Owasco Lake. Other Finger Lakes having populations of them include Honeoye and Otisco Lakes.

Rock Bass

Rock Bass

The ubiquitous lowly rockbass. Is there any fish that anglers catch in freshwater that gets less respect? I shall think not.

Rainbow Trout

Rainbow Trout

These fish are fairly enigmatic in most of the Finger Lakes. They are abundant in Skaneateles Lake. Numbers have gone up over the past couple years.

Lake Trout

Lake Trout

Lake trout are abundant in the Finger Lakes region with Seneca Lake being the most famous for its lake trout fishing.

Yellow Perch

Yellow Perch

Yellow Perch are popular North American freshwater pan-fish, available year-round albeit small and easy to catch.

Northen Pike

Northen Pike

Northern Pike are aggressive, predatory fish and some of the largest freshwater game available to target in North America.

Brown Trout

Brown Trout

I consider brown trout somewhat of a bonus fish for us on Seneca and Cayuga Lakes. They don’t chase flies quite as actively as landlocked salmon.

Largemouth Bass

Largemouth Bass

The Largemouth Bass is by far the most popular freshwater game fish in the US and the state fish of Florida, Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi.

Fishing Trip

I have fished many of these places for years and I have numerous contacts that fish these lakes regularly and keep me posted on good fishing opportunities.
