Cayuga Lake: Northern pike and chain pickerel were being caught on spoons in the north end. Any rain should bring the browns and landlocked salmon into the tributaries.
Seneca Lake: Lake trout were being taken 50-80 feet down over 115-130 feet of water on spoons and flasher and flies. Yellow perch were hitting on small minnows and plastics. The northern third of the lake has been productive for perch. A few brown trout should be heading up major tributaries as the flows increase.
Canandaigua Lake: Rainbow trout were being taken 40-80 feet down over a variety of depths on spoons and flasher and flies. Lake trout were being caught with similar methods in 80 to 120 feet. Most lake trout were still located near the bottom.
Keuka Lake: Vertical jigging in 80 to 150 feet of water around The Bluff area and near major points was producing a lot of lake trout.
Owasco Lake: Yellow perch were hitting minnows on the north end of the lake. Lake trout were also being taken on the north end by vertical jigging or trolling.
Otisco Lake: As with Oneida Lake, there were walleye being caught from shore by anglers casting stick baits off the causeway just before and after dark. Tiger muskies and bass were hitting crankbaits fished along shore and outside weed edges.
Skaneateles Lake: Yellow perch were hitting minnows fished in 30-40 feet of water. Anglers using marshmallow and worm rigs have been doing well from shore for rainbow trout at Lourdes Camp .
Susquehanna, Chenango, Tioughnioga and Unadilla rivers: Try crankbaits, tube jigs, bucktail jigs or stick baits for walleye. Good colors have been darker colors for the plastics and jigs, and crayfish or perch pattern for the crankbaits. A few muskellunge were also being taken, so it may pay to use a wire leader.
Whitney Point Reservoir: Walleye, yellow perch and smallmouth bass were hitting on crankbaits fished in 5-10 feet of water. Some large yellow perch were being taken.
