Come experience the best fishing the Finger Lakes have to offer!
Water temperatures are in the 39/41 degree range on the surface of the larger Finger Lakes. Looks like some varied temperatures on the way over the next week.
This is the best time to schedule spring/summer fishing. I generally post availability during the busy season (April - November) to help with scheduling.
If you aren't a DEC Diary Keeper for Region 7 (Cayuga/Owasco/Otisco/Skaneateles) or Region 8 (Seneca/Canandaigua/Keuka/Canadice/Hemlock,) now's the time to sign up. It's easy and your information (length of trip, number of anglers fishing, fish caught et.al.) will help DEC with management decisions. Even if you only fish a few days a season, your info can help.

Cayuga Lake: Fly-fishing and casting with gear has been productive for landlocked salmon and brown trout along with occasional rainbows and lakers. Lake trout jigging is also productive. The water level is low and launching and retrieving boats could be a hassle for some.
Seneca Lake: Fishing is currently fair to good for landlocked salmon and brown trout. Perch and pike fishing should be good.
Keuka Lake: Lake trout fishing should still be good here.
Owasco Lake: Lake trout and northern pike fishing should be good here.
Skaneateles Lake: Rainbow trout, landlocked salmon and yellow perch fishing should be good here.
