Owasco Lake 9/20
Did a full day with Rob out of Emerson Park. He joined me around 4 to 5 years ago for some bass fishing on Keuka Lake. I was a bit concerned about the effects of the cold front, but sometimes in the fall a cold front can be very good fishing. Today it was. We had some very good laker jigging today with Rob landing 8 solid fish, of which 2 were over 27" and one was wild. He also picked up a couple nice bonus smallmouth bass vertically including one at 19.5".
We did some smallmouth bass fishing down the lake and Rob nabbed another 4 to 5 solid fish up to 18". The smallmouth fishing was in top-notch form. He also nailed a nice perch. Lakers bit throughout the day but the best action was mid-AM. 55' to 105' or so was best. We saw another 3 or 4 boats on the water all day. For much of the day, we had the lake to ourselves. Water temps was 71/72. Level was lower than full pool.
Reports from Keuka Lake still have the lake trout bite as slow. Plenty of fish are around, but they haven't turned on quite yet. They will!
