Finger Lakes/Southern Tier Fishing Report – March 4th, 2016
Cayuga Lake: Nothing to report. Anglers are now pointing to the April 1 trout opener in the tributaries.
Seneca Lake: Yellow perch fishing can often be good this time of year on Seneca, but so far no reports of how anglers have been doing.
Canandaigua Lake: Nothing happening.
Owasco Lake: No report.
Otisco Lake: There was ice reported on the north end but walking was difficult due to slush. Ice may not even be safe now, especially near the shoreline, road culverts and other areas of flowing water.
Skaneateles Lake: The state launch is closed for the season. No safe ice to report.
Susquehanna, Chenango, Tioughnioga and Unadilla rivers: Rivers are up from the recent rain and snowmelt. When rivers go down try for walleye in the deeper holes with jigs tipped with minnows ahead of the season closing date of March 15.
Whitney Point Reservoir: Not hearing anything.
