  1. Skaneateles

    Thx Walnut, going later today in a small craft. If it isn't too rough I will hit the deeper water and see if I can jig some trout. If not I will play with the bass and panfish near shore. Hope the state launch isn't full! Will post if I get anything noteworthy.

    Great pics! You really have all the varieties dialed in.
  3. Skaneateles

    what depth are you finding them at? Thanks!
  4. My answer would probably not be impartial unbiased or objective. I don't use downriggers, but do cast, jig and troll (a little) and have fished mine alot. they are durable good strong rods. one is 20 some odd years old.
  5. Geez!
  6. tournament any time soon?
  7. per the regulations, they must be destroyed. Invasive Species. BTW, he is holding it wrong.
  8. Otisco

    your timing is excellent, this article was on about finding parkng along Public Fishing Rights...PFR.

    If you have access to a boat, there is a brown drake hatch in the summer ( late June, early July?) on Skaneateles that turns on the rainbow bite. Lots of people fly fish it from boats.

    as fisherdude said, nine mile is right off the dam of Otisco. A little tough to find access close to the lake, but further down near Marcellus all the way to Camillus there is plenty of great spots. The feeder to Otisco is Spafford Creek, it has browns. There is access to the last leg into the lake as the owner has a fishing allowed sign in the parking area. I haven't fished that area, so cannot offer any advice. Maybe some one here can. There is also Grout Brook the feeder on Skaneateles Lake, the next lake West of Otisco. The spring run is known for monster Bows, but it is tiny and more suited to small ultralight hook and worm rather than fly. The outlet of Skaneateles is Skaneateles Creek, there is, I believe a catch and release fly zone on that. Again someone can chime in on that.
  11. It is illegal now, see Restricted Baitfish Species section:
  12. a little off topic, anyone have any luck with jigging?... Or, casting jigs?
  13. I was joking. I would like to try the savages, they look like they would be a blast. Or Suick?, Believer, and of course a Mepps.
  14. 1000 casts, no thanks. I would troll, drift, or use bait.
