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 landlocks 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″. Bass and 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 least double that lost! Great day! H2O was around 44 max.
