Seneca Lake Shorefishing 4/1

Reports

Well I’ve got my new 2014 model year Tundra and it’s a beautiful machine. But before towing the recommendation is to get in around 500 miles of driving, so I decided to shore fish today, rather than tow the boat.


I checked out a couple different areas today. Lots of fishermen were on the south end of the lake – it was loaded with boats perch fishing, trolling for salmon/trout and casting for salmon/trout. There’s a lot of debris and muddy water but things are starting to settle down.


I went to one of my favorite areas and cast a 6 wt. type 4 sinking fly-line. Managed to land 2 legal salmon in about an hour anda half on chartreuse deceivers. One was around 17″ and the other was a fish just shy of 4lbs that measured 23″. Great fight with 1/2 dozen leaps.
