Owasco Lake 9/14


What a great day on Owasco with Karl and Glen! After we had some slow fishing on Cayuga Tuesday I convinced the guys to join me on Owasco today rather than head back to Cayuga. Conditions were overcast and rainy to start with light south winds. Lakers were hitting great – mostly from around 10 or 11 am onwards, though we did have a good morning bite. Fish were concentrated in around 82′ to 88′ of water or so. The guys landed around 17 or 18 nice lake trout- all 18″ to 26″ – most around 25″. Karl landed a beautiful rainbow trout – 27″ and probably 7lbs. Wicked fight with some great surface moves! Then Glen got a 21 1/2″ smallmouth! We hooked up some other nice bass as well, landing a few around 15″ to 17″. All in all an awesome day! I took plenty of photos, we released the big bass but the rainbow will join the guys for dinner. Word is that there are good numbers of nice rainbows lake wide. It’s about time!
