Finger Lakes/Southern Tier Fishing Report – March 6th, 2015

Cayuga Lake: Snow and slush were making travel difficult on the lake so no new information to report. Use caution: snowdrifts can cover pressure cracks, making them difficult to see. Ice reports showed 10 to 12 inches on the north end.

Seneca Lake: Anglers braving the wind and cold temperatures were still getting yellow perch from shore at Sampson State Park. To get to the perch you must have equipment that allows you to make a very long cast.

Canandaigua Lake: More of the lake has frozen over but no new reports of ice thickness. 

Keuka Lake: Anglers have been targeting the Branchport area for lake trout in this rare year that offered safe ice in that area. Some good catches have been reported. Anglers have also been fishing around Pen Yan, with 7 to 8 inches of ice being reported in spots.

Owasco Lake: Ice has finally formed on the north end. But like everywhere else, snow and slush were making travel difficult and few anglers have been out. Ice has formed around Ensenore, but there are very few reports of ice thickness.

Otisco Lake: Like other places snow and slush are making travel on the ice very difficult. There was around a foot of ice on the north end but no new information to report.

Skaneateles Lake: There was reported to be 6 inches of ice on the north end, with anglers getting some yellow perch early and late in the day. There is finally ice on the south end, and anglers have been out but no word on how thick the ice is.

Susquehanna, Chenango, Tioughnioga and Unadilla rivers: Not hearing a lot of late. Most ice anglers have had their fill of the hard water this season and activity is slowing down.

Whitney Point Reservoir: Ice reports showed 12 inches or more but snowy and slushy conditions. Not hearing a lot since the Crappie Derby was held last month.
