Posted on Thu, 06 Mar 2014
Cayuga Lake: Anglers were fishing the north end, but as always use caution as ice thickness varies greatly in this area and this is the time of year when conditions can change quickly. Yellow perch and pickerel were being taken on small minnows.
Seneca Lake: The cold and windy conditions have made getting a boat out difficult, but some anglers going out of Severne were getting some perch.
Canandaigua Lake: Anglers were fishing the north and south ends at last report and getting some yellow perch on small minnows or spikes.
Keuka Lake: Anglers fishing for perch were getting fish on small jigs tipped with spikes or minnows. Those targeting lake trout were using jigging spoons like Swedish pimples or minnows fished under tip-ups.
Owasco Lake: Anglers fishing the north and south ends and were getting northern pike, yellow perch and bluegills.
Otisco Lake: Bluegill and pumpkinseeds fishing action has slowed down on the north end over the last few weeks.
Skaneateles Lake: At last check, anglers were fishing both the north and south ends. Some yellow perch, with a few lake trout mixed in, were being taken on small minnows.
Susquehanna, Chenango, Tioughnioga and Unadilla rivers: Not hearing a lot due to the warmup last month that hurt ice conditions, but some spots may be available again.
Whitney Point Reservoir: Fishing has been slow over the last few weeks.
