Come experience the best fishing the Finger Lakes have to offer!
Two dates remains open in late-September then it's off to October and beyond.
September: 29th, 30th.
October: 3rd, 8th - 12th, 14th, 20th - 21st, 24th - 26th, 28th.
November and onwards: Most days are open.
Cayuga Lake: Lake trout jigging is fair to very good depending on the day and sometimes during the hour of the day. Plenty of browns and some salmon are around as well. September is usually hot and cold here for laker jigging day to day action. Bass fishing action has varied; pickerel are active. Good fishing can be had for panfish.
Lake trout propagation netting starts on Monday October 1st. Stay away from the nets/buoys and you won't lose tackle or mess up the nets.
Seneca Lake: Lake trout action has been fair from what I have heard via a few reports. I expect good pike action starting around late-September. Bass fishing with occasional pike in the mix should be alright now.
DEC has a "State of the Lake Fishing" Meeting here on October 2nd at Hobart and William Smith Colleges from 6:30 pm til 9 pm. Unfortunately I will not be able to attend.
Owasco Lake: Expect good smallmouth bass fishing. Lake trout action is good and should only get better. The lake is full of bait and trout are widely distributed.
Skaneateles Lake: Expect good to excellent fishing for smallmouth bass. Fishing for yellow perch, rock bass and lake trout is also good.
Keuka Lake: I have had various reports from here - bass fishing is generally good to very good. Lake trout fishing has been very good for the most part with fish looking healthy.
