Keuka Lake out of Keuka Lake State Park/Branchport 11/21


Guided past client Dave and his friends Mike and Jake today for around 6 hours. It was cold this AM! Very cold. The first thing we noticed at the launch was that the water is currently very low. A couple of the boat trailer “stops” that prevent trailers from backing over the concrete launch slab are out of place – having been moved by trailers. Worse yet, there’s an exposed bolt just waiting to be driven over. So be careful around the State Park launch and look before you leap.

Water temps are finally dropping below the 50 degree mark. We had 49 degrees on Keuka today. There are tons of fish around Branchport and at the Bluff, among other areas. The bite was slow steady today (when compared to usual fall fishing here.) But we ended up doing pretty well with over 13 nice fish landed up to 26″. Fish are still feeding and we had good fishing from around 85′ out to 115′. We were the only boat that launched out of the State Park while we were there today. Fun day with a good bite on plastics and spoons.
