Seneca Lake out of Watkins Glen 10/19
Guided Gordon for the full day starting around 7:30 am. Pike on the fly is what he did and fishing started out good and got better as the AM went on. He managed 6 or 7 nice fish in the AM topped by a 36″ beauty! All fish came while fishing an 8 wt. rod with a full sinking density compensated Type 6 line and large Lefty’s Deceiver patterns. We tried a little fly-casting for salmon (I saw a few in spawning mode last time I was out here) and a little perch fishing without any luck. We did some more pike fishing and he landed a couple more on gear. Great day! We saw one other boat on the water momentarily – that was it! Water temps are at 58 degrees. Expect more and more large fish in the mix as water temps continue to drop!
