Keuka Lake out of Keuka State Park 9/5 AM


Guided Tony and Christina for 1/2 day starting around 6:45 am. We didn’t find many fish around the State Park. A couple were landed in short order but I felt we could do better at the Bluff, so we made the run. Fishing was fair to start at the Bluff but got better as the day progressed. Lakers were hitting well right up until we left. Eleven fish were landed – mostly around 19″ to 21″. We had one dink, but even that was a legal fish. Marked some bait but not much, though seagulls were around, so I’d bet more bait was in the area. The thermocline was shallow – around 55′ to 65′ FOW. We did well shallow around Branchport and deep around the Bluff (105′ to 110′ was best for us.) Very good fishing and it should only get better. Very few boats were out. White, chartreuse and smelt colors all worked fine.
