Seneca Lake out of Watkins Glen 11/21


Went out with my friend Jeff for a shot at some salmon and/or pike on the fly starting around 11 am. Salmon fishing was slow. We definitely had a few hits, but they weren’t very solid. I tend to think that the overcast conditions tend to keep the fish deeper. The forecast called for sun, but that’s not what we had.

After close to 3 hours, we switched out to pike. We had some slow action for those as well, though we didn’t have too much time to fish. I nailed a hard-fighting 34″ fish on our first drift on a floating line and deceiver.

Saw two boat total on the lake today. Both were likely chasing perch. Water temp was 48 degrees.
