Seneca Lake out of Watkins Glen 1/5


Fished northerns today with Jessica. We started just after noon and worked up the shoreline. Pike were pretty much where they’ve been over the past couple months. Again – 20′ to around 25′ of water was best. The pike are abundant and running from 24″ to 30″ – with most fish being around 29″. The lampreys are really pounding these northerns – it’s amazing how many pike show lamprey marks. Some perch and crappies are reportedly hitting around the south end of the lake. H2O was 40. Water level is still decent (a little bit low) but launching wasn’t a problem.
