Seneca Lake out of Geneva 6/13


Did a full day with Steve, John and Rick – all cousins now located in different parts of the country. We got off to a late start due to the foggy driving conditions, but it didn’t hurt us regarding the fishing in any way! Fishing was much better than on my last visit here on 6/7. The area is absolutely loaded with lakers and bait! The guys landed around 13 fish total, from 24″ up to a 32″ (likely over 10lb) whopper! We released the slob unharmed. The fish we kept were loaded with alewives, incl. some big baitfish. The usual assortment of plastics did the trick, with chartreuse being particularly hot for us today. I was impressed by the beauty of a couple of the specimens (which we released.) Plenty of wild fish were in the mix, which is great to see. Nothing tops Seneca Lake for a great assortment of lake trout in varying colors and sizes, both wild and hatchery fish. It’s an amazing lake. We had a great time on the trip – the guys were a lot of fun.
