Anglers trolling around Taughannock Point were getting lake trout and some Atlantic salmon. Fishing 20 feet down has been a good starting point for the salmon. Trolling on the south end of the lake was producing some brown trout and Atlantic salmon. Stick baits and spoons were working. Anglers getting out in boats on the north end were getting some yellow perch.
Yellow perch and black crappie fishing from the pier has been good, with fish hitting minnows, spikes and oak leaf grubs. Trolling on the surface with stick baits, streamers and spoons was working for Atlantic salmon and brown trout. Lake trout were hitting spoons fished 100 to 120 feet down.
Anglers getting out in boats on the south and north ends were catching yellow perch.
