Seneca Lake out of Sampson 7/27 AM


Guided Jim for a 1/2 day starting around 6 am. It’s getting lighter noticeably later now which is nice. Winds were up steadily from the south. Fishing around Sampson was difficult and slow. A run to the west side of the lake produced immediate results with around 1/2 dozen solid fish hooked and 4 nice ones landed. Chartreuse Swim Fishy was the hot lure. Plenty of fish were around the 95′ to 115′ mark today. Good day and we were wrapped up by 10:15. 3/4s of the fish were clipped. To me stocking is still a significant part of the management of Seneca Lake laketrout. We marked a fair amount of bait as well.
