Owasco Lake 11/4


Mixed bag fishing remains very good on Owasco Lake. Today we did some lake trout jigging using 3/4 oz. Silver Kastmasters and white Zoom flukes on 1 oz. heads and fishing was good – not great, but good….;-) We landed 4 fish and missed a few. Smallmouth bass are active in deep water. I picked up an 18″ fish in around 50′ as well as a smaller one. Fly-casting for northern pike produced 3 nice fish from 25″ to 31″. Large white deceivers fished on a Type 6 sinking line fished in 3′ to 35′ of water did the trick. Also managed a chunky largemouth. Plenty of nice lush green weeds around. Thick coontail! I still had to work hard for fish, but they were around. H2O is at 52 degrees.
