Cayuga Lake:  Jigging success varies, ranging from slow to downright superb depending on the day and conditions.  Occasional salmon, rainbow trout and brown trout are in the mix. Largemouth bass fishing is fair;  pickerel action is good.

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

Skaneateles Lake:  Smallmouth bass fishing has picked up for larger fish.  Lake trout jigging is fair.  Plenty of large rockbass and some perch are around.  

Seneca Lake:  Fishing is fair for lakers i.e. a couple fish is a good day.  Any other lake in the region is probably a better bet if you want lakers.  Pike, bass and perch action should be picking up. Check out my article detailing DEC's coldwater gillnetting findings by clicking onto "The Fishing" and then clicking on "Articles."  

Keuka Lake:  Lake trout fishing should be fair to good here.  Laker action generally picks up a lot here in October and onwards.  Bass fishing has been good. Perch fishing should be also be productive.  Check out my article regarding DEC's recent baitfish assessment here by clicking onto "The Fishing" and then "Articles."

Otisco Lake:  Bass fishing here has been good.  Expect decent tiger musky action.

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.
