Seneca Lake Shorefishing 1/6


Got out with my buddy Mike for some fly-fishing from shore. We fished 4 areas on Seneca Lake and didn’t see much going on until we hit our last spot. I had one “swirl,” that may have been a lake trout slowly following in a fly (that happened to be fouled.) I don’t know. But Mike wound up landing a very solid laker around 28″ long, give or take that he released. Duck hunting is in full force and the season ends this Sunday. Expect to see a lot of hunters out on Seneca and Cayuga Lakes this weekend. The lake temp on Seneca was 42 degrees. Launching is still possible at Schamels and Severne Point (as usual.) The south end canal launch is iced in.
