Keuka Lake out of Branchport 7/9


Guided Mike and John for a 1/2 day today. Mike has joined me on quite a few occasions and holds our Keuka lake trout boat record. Fishing started out really good at 6 am with fish being fairly aggressive. As usual, we didn’t mark much bait. Fish were on bottom as well as suspended – primarily around 55′ to 65′ down. White shakers and Kastmasters did the trick – 3 decent fish were landed and a fair number missed/lost. We did see salmon too – so they are around! We stayed around Branchport today. The wind really cranked up out of the south around 20 – 24 mph or so, and the fishing slowed. But they are there! Plenty of nice fish are around the Branchport arm. I’m out on this lake next week and we’ll likely check out the bluff area.
