Come experience the best fishing the Finger Lakes have to offer!  

With warm and downright hot air temperatures forecast this week, expect pike, pickerel and bass fishing to pick up markedly throughout the region.  The laker jigging bite on Cayuga is still good to excellent. Lakers are moving shallow throughout the region.

Open dates:   

May: 25th, 26th (PM only laker jigging,) 27th.

June: 1st - 5th, 7th, 9th, 16th, 19th, 21st (AM only), 24th - 28th.

Most dates are open from July 1st through the rest of the year.

Cayuga Lake:   Lake trout jigging is good from shallow to deep with fish running 23" to over 30".   Casting and fly-casting for browns and salmon has been slow but a few fish are being caught. Pickerel action is very good. 

Seneca Lake:  Lake trout jigging is picking up over here. Pike action should pick up this week.

The launch at Sampson State Park is now closed and will be closed into the spring/summer.  

Skaneateles Lake:  Water temperatures here should start rising fairly quickly.  Expect smallmouth bass fishing to pick up dramatically.  I also would expect good lake trout and yellow perch fishing with rock bass starting to show up as well.  

Owasco Lake:  Laker action here is slow.  Fish are scattered in a variety of depths. We marked quite a few out from 120' to 140'.  Pike action was slow but should really get underway here this week.
