Finger Lakes/Southern Tier Fishing Report - November 27th, 2015
Posted on Thu, 26 Nov 2015
Cayuga Lake: Lake trout were being taken over a wide depth range, from as shallow as 50 feet down to 150 feet of water.
Seneca Lake: Lake trout trollers have been picking up a few fish by working spoons or flasher-fly rigs 80 to 120 feet down over 100 to 200 feet of water. Vertical jiggers were targeting lakers in 75 to 110 feet of water on the bottom. Baitfish imitation plastics were working well. No perch reports of late, but if the weather cooperates the fish should, too.
Canandaigua Lake: Nothing to report.
Keuka Lake: No report now with deer season in full swing.
Owasco Lake: Lake trout were being taken by anglers vertical jigging in 80 feet of water.
Skaneateles Lake: The docks have been removed for the season. Rainbow trout were hitting for anglers trolling streamers near the surface. Yellow perch were being caught on small minnows and smallmouth bass were still being caught on stick baits as that season winds down.
Susquehanna, Chenango, Tioughnioga and Unadilla rivers: No report, but bass and walleye should be on the prowl. Sucker minnows are deadly this time of year.
Whitney Point Reservoir: Not hearing anything, even from the walleye crowd.
