Seneca Lake out of Watkins 5/8


Not much to report today. Fished on my own from noon till around 6 pm. It was beautiful out – clear blue skies, sunny and very little wind. As many of you know, for good salmon action I need steady wind. Again, I didn’t have it today. It was a nice light southerly around 3 to 5 mph, but nothing much onshore. I fished hard for salmon and had one follow of a fish that looked like a dark rainbow. I did see a huge salmon cruise by once the lake calmed. Water temps were very good – 40s to 50s. Some weeds are starting to come up. I spotted a couple pike in close to shore. Also spotted a good carp. I expect good salmon action once the weather starts changing a bit. We’ll see! Pike are probably still post-spawn. I’ll be out on Cayuga, Owasco and Skaneateles Lake over the next week, so I should have some good updates. Lake Ontario is also calling me 😉
