Cayuga Lake:  Jigging is still very good, though maybe a bit slower than over the past week for the overall day-long bite.  Some of this is likely just the weather conditions.  Occasional salmon, rainbow trout and brown trout are in the mix. Largemouth bass fishing (with bonus pickerel) is fair to good here.

Owasco Lake:  Smallmouth bass fishing should be fair to good here.  Lake trout fishing should be picking up markedly here.  Expect bonus browns, rainbows and bass.

Skaneateles Lake:  Smallmouth bass fishing is good.  Lake trout jigging is fair.  Plenty of rockbass and some perch are around. 

Seneca Lake:  Fishing is fair for lakers - a couple fish is a good day. 

Keuka Lake:  Lake trout fishing should be fair to good here.  Bass fishing has been good. 

Otisco Lake:  No recent reports from here but with drier conditions the fishing should be good here for bass and tiger muskies.

FOR SALE:  DIAMONDBACK DIAMONDFLY:  This is a 9' 6 weight rod that I received direct from Cortland as a warranty replacement for a Diamondback Backwater Rod that I broke. It is in mint/brand new condition with a rod tube.  Gorgeous rod.  Medium/fast action. They retail for just under $300.  To me they feel/fish more like a $200 rod - so that's my asking price:  $200.   

Need laker jigheads? Bill has a couple styles of DEEP jigging heads as well as his usual assortment of great hair jigs and various heads and other lures!
