Finger Lakes/Southern Tier Fishing Reports

Finger Lakes/Southern Tier Fishing Report - March 20th, 2015

Cayuga Lake: Much of Cayuga Lake was frozen over, which is extremely rare for this second largest Finger Lake. Normally only the north and south ends freeze over. Travel on the ice had improved some from last week but it continued to be difficult with the snow and slush. 

Seneca Lake: Not hearing enough to generate a fishing report.

Canandaigua Lake: Anglers getting out to deeper water were catching lake trout jigging with spoons or plastics. Keep an eye on ice conditions now.

Keuka Lake: Anglers fishing near the Keuka Lake State park were getting lake trout jigging in 100 or more feet of water with spoons or plastics. Reports indicated it was the best ice fishing season for lakers in many years, but that could be coming to a slushy end soon.

Owasco Lake: Completely frozen over and anglers were fishing both ends and also around Ensenore Point. Travel has been difficult on the north and south ends due to snow and slush. Anglers fishing for lakers around Ensenore were getting a few, but overall it has been slow.

Skaneateles Lake: The entire lake is frozen over for the second consecutive year. Anglers were fishing both the north and south ends, and where they can get access also the main lake. Some yellow perch and lake trout were being iced, but conditions are deteriorating now with spring making its move.

Susquehanna, Chenango, Tioughnioga and Unadilla rivers: The warmup has left few options for anglers now.
Whitney Point Reservoir: Not hearing anything.
