Skaneateles Lake 5/16


Back on Skinny today with Chris and Mike. The overall fishing was very good to excellent. Plenty of nice smallmouth bass have moved up lakewide after the extraordinarily hot weather we had. Fish ranged up to 18″ and were FAT! My guys probably landed close to 25 nice bass. The perch fishing was also very good with around a dozen and a half landed up to 14″. Rainbows were non-existent for us today. We did land a couple landlocks around 16″ that were released. Lakers are also moving up and we landed a few decent lakers up to 21″. Water temps are around 45 to 47 degrees. We were the only motorized boat on the lake today.

The weather left a bit to be desired, but it wasn’t too bad. Fish were in 5′ to 25′ of water.
