Finger Lakes/Southern Tier Fishing Reports
Finger Lake Fishing Report - December 13th, 2013
Posted on Thu, 12 Dec 2013
Cayuga Lake: Yellow perch were being caught in the north end on minnows.
Seneca Lake: Yellow perch were hitting on small minnows and plastics. The northern third of the lake has been productive for perch.
Canandaigua Lake: Nothing to report.
Keuka Lake: No report.
Owasco Lake: Yellow perch were hitting minnows on the north end of the lake.
Skaneateles Lake: The launch was closed Nov. 27 because of inclement weather and will remain closed until spring. Anglers have been doing well from shore for rainbow trout at Lourdes Camp using marshmallow and worm rigs.
Susquehanna and Chenango rivers: Rain and snowmelt have brought the rivers up. Before the high water, walleye fishing had been good for anglers using large minnows and stickbaits. When the rivers go down this good fishing will hopefully continue.
Whitney Point Reservoir: The docks have been removed. With the rain and snow melt the reservoir will probably be rising and becoming turbid. Before the rain, walleye were being taken on jigs tipped with minnows. It may be a good time to try the spillway for walleye using jigs or stick baits.
