Fish Species

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.

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.

Landlocked Salmon

Landlocked Salmon

Adults are generally silvery with a slightly forked tail and small X-shaped markings on the back and upper sides.

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.

Tiger Musky

Tiger Musky

Tiger Muskies are the sterile hybrid of a pure-strain musky and a northern pike.  Occasionally they are called "norlunge" as well. 

Northen Pike

Northen Pike

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

Yellow Perch

Yellow Perch

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

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.

Bluegill / Sunfish

Bluegill / Sunfish

Sunfish are a diverse family of freshwater North American fish, mostly round in shape and of interesting colors.

Black Crappie

Black Crappie

Black Crappie are the most common crappie species in the Finger Lakes. A few white crappie can be found in Otisco Lake. They are most often targeted in the spring and through the ice.
