Fish Species

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.

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.

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.

Northern Pike

Northern Pike

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

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.

Lake Trout

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

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.

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