Finger Lakes/Southern Tier Fishing Reports

Finger Lakes/Southern Tier Fishing Report - January 23rd, 2015

Cayuga Lake: Nothing on the open water front now, but ice anglers were out on the northern end. No reports yet of how they’re doing.

Honeoye Lake: Anglers were drilling holes and fishing parts of the lake, with decent reports of a mix of perch, crappie and bluegills.

Keuka Lake: No report on the ice fishing front yet.

Owasco Lake: Anglers were waiting for safe ice, which may have arrived by now, at least in the south end of the lake.

Otsego Lake: Not hearing of any ice fishing activity yet.

Otisco Lake: Hard-water anglers were on the north end of the lake, with reports of bluegills, crappie and the occasional tiger muskie being caught. Keep an eye on changing conditions.

Skaneateles Lake: The DEC launch was closed for the season.

Susquehanna, Chenango, Tioughnioga and Unadilla rivers: Not hearing anything, but ice fishing may be possible in some coves. Anglers with a solid knowledge of the rivers are now on some of the traditional spots. Use caution.

Whitney Point Reservoir: Anglers were on the reservoir and catching some perch, crappie, and a few good walleye. That said, the Almost-Annual New York State Crappie Derby was pushed back by a week (to Feb. 14) to allow for a bit more ice formation. Go online to www.crappiederby.com for updates.
