Keuka Lake out of Branchport 4/11


Guided Jeff and Andy for the full day today. Jeff’s fished with me before and we’ve had some good action on lakers and pike/bass. Today the lakers didn’t disappoint. Trollers had some great AM action. Jigging was OK to start with a couple fish landed for us in short order. The deepest water (175’+) is the place to be – though there are fish shallower. Fish got more active as the day went on. By 11 am the guys had landed around a half dozen nice fish to 24″.

We tried a couple areas for landlockeds and Jeff hooked one and had a follow. It was nice to see a few salmon around on Keuka Lake. Diary keepers started catching fair numbers of sublegal fish last year. The fish Jeff lost was around 18″. Bassand pickerel were also around.

After a couple hours of trying for salmon we went back to the lakers and they were hitting very well. A few more were landed. We wound up with 13 or 14 nice lakers landed and at leastdouble that lost! Great day! H2O was around 44 max.
