  1. Short version-You might lose gear trolling near one of these. They're for a DEC study. Everyone else probably knows this but I didn't find any posts. First time out on Saturday and noticed a buoy out in front of the Bluff and thought "Someone is using hotspot buoys here?" Thought I steered clear of it but lost a spoon while passing by, too far away to read the small print message that I later found out included the word "away." The Association put out this helpful warning about orange buoys in February, but the DEC must have decided on using yellow as well- https://www.keukalakeassociation.org/Orange_Buoys_on_Keuka_Lake.pdf "Anglers, please be aware that if you are fishing within 150 feet of these buoys, it is possible that fishing gear may get entangled in equipment used to anchor the buoys to the bottom."

  2. Got the poles in at the south beach about 6:45 am next time it will be 5:45am because the bite just died at 9am. Had a bunch of releases and finally 1 in the boat on a Michigan Stinger magnum NBK with a pro troll NBK pattern. Things got quite and went to branchport and put out same rig but with dipsies instead of slide divers and got another in the boat, Green and White were the colors today.
  3. Has anyone been fishing Keuka lake. Will be heading there in two weeks to do some fishing. staying at the State Park and will be launching from there. Anyone doing any good?
  4. G'Job DEC! We trollers can now target lakers, lakers….. or lakers. Rainbows, browns and salmon are as rare as hen's teeth! Plenty of bait though (sawbellies, NOT your phantom ciscos). No fun! No interest! Lakers only..... and you did it DEC! Rethink your stocking plans or you'll lose fishermen support, license income, charter guys, etc. Sawbelly counts rise and fall from time to time. Always have. You panicked last couple years, and started talking about your bs cisco theories (yawn). You shoulda just waited for the sawbellies to resurge (it only took 6 months) then re-stocked the game fish. Please.
  5. Will be coming up the week of Aug 5, staying at the State Park and looking for any suggestions on fishing for lake trout and Land lock salmon. Never fished this lake before. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
  6. Does anyone know if the ice is off the Branchport arm and if the state park boat launch is open? I'm planning a trip up tomorrow and while I'm coming from the south, the Hammondsport Motel apparently no longer allows the public to launch for a fee. If anyone else knows of a better option on the southern end, I'd be glad to know about it too, thanks in advance.
  7. Lots and lots of hungry lakers near the state park launch Wednesday.80 to 130 fow. Hope they did not stock the ciscos (sign by launch) in that area.
  8. Hello. I accidentally left my 4.5 ft Gorilla step ladder at the Penn Yann launch Friday night. If any one that used that launch Friday night or Sat a.m. found it and decided to do the right thing and keep an eye on it until the owner could step forward then I thank you and would really like it back. It was not cheap. Please send me a pm. Thanks for helping me out. On another note, we went 3 for 5 on lakers. Nothing huge but good enough for the smoker.
  9. Here's what a Naples-made Sutton 44 & 71 spoon looks like after getting hooked on my jig Saturday. Falling-apart brittle. Couldn't tell if the mono they were attached to was ever part of the copper wrapped around the whole mess. At least I got to learn that people love these 44 spoons.

  11. Well finally some good news. Boated 5 lakers and lost one at the boat. Also 4 or 5 bumps yesterday at the Penn Yan end of the lake (70 - 90 fow).They liked white or green tube. Impressive number of laker blips on my ff. Also good number of small bait balls. Lot of suspended laker blips just under the thermocline. Normal size lakers for Keuka (less than 22 inches ) but will be some good eating tomorrow after marinate in lemongarlicious and charcoal grill. Do not normally fish the east branch but looks like I need to hit it more often.
  12. Doesn't look like prop. Both sides have open soars. AND, a second fish caught minutes later had smaller red dots across the complete body.
  13. Keuka Lake Landlocked Salmon Basic Technique? Can anyone point me towards the basics of targeting landlocked salmon on Keuka Lake? I've been able to locate and successfully apply specifics to the lake trout. (Jigging white tube jig works best for me, I prefer jigging to passive downrigger trolling) If anyone can share a particular lure & method that will put a salmon in the boat, or send me to a Keuka-specific guide, that would be great. Thanks in advance.
  14. Does anyone know if the docks r in at the Penn Yan village boat launch?
  15. my buddies and I splash their 221 starcraft islander today . last time it was out last year at the lou all in the boat had some running issues . after a little winter TLC happy to say the boat ran perfect today . so we fished 7 to 10 am . the temp was 36 degrees . we set up with two seth green rods with suttons spoons . targeting lakers we found them deep as they seem still wintered up . we did 11 fish with having a triple and a double rest singles . we did drop a couple at the boat getting the fish in with out a net. we consider then caught any ways as we were catch and release , witch was a good thing for the fish we didn't handle them and for us the water and wind was cold . was super great to be out on the boat again and hope winter doesn't show her ugly face again till next January ....
  16. From Diary program. “considering the current forage conditions in Keuka Lake, we are temporarily discontinuing these stocking programs.” (Browns/Atlantic). Rainbow stockings will get yearling Finger Lakes strain rainbow stockings in place of fingerlings. A bit larger fish.... 10,000 Cisco coming in Fall. Dave Here's to bending your net! [emoji481]
  17. Lot of concern over the last couple of years relative to the sawbelly population on Keuka. Good news on that front Tuesday. Only managed one laker jigging that day but the one I got had 7 good sized saw bellies inside in him. Was fishing at the Branchport end.
  18. Waneta Looking to Muskie fish for week at Waneta lake in Oct. Need to secure lodging cottage cabin or house with dock. Would appreciate a recommendation. Thank you for your time.
  19. Mixed Bag Went over to Keuka this morning with my friend Pete on the Paula 3 and had a good morning of fishing with a mixed bag of smallies perch,and some huge rock bass.Iam reserveing the perch for tomorrow nite,s supper.
  20. Any Laker and panfish reports? Looking for any info on Keuka for Lakers and panfish heading up tomorrow morning from PA I've fished Lakers on this lake in the past but we've been hitting Cayuga last few trips
  21. keuka 7/16 went out with my buddy and his son to see how Keuka lake fishing would be . left from Keuka state park at 5 30. we went 5 for 8 today all lake trout and were release to bite another day. the fish were small ,2 lb to 4 lbs . they all seem to have empty bellies . there is a big difference from Cayuga lake fish to Keuka lake fish . there was more face book time for my buddies son . we hardly mark bait but did mark small schools of fish all the way to the point . by 10 30 the recreational boats started zooming all around so we called it a morning . the water fleas were just about none . surface temp was 73 . we ran two rig rods with suttons and mi scorpion spoons one high one low with each rod doing about the same amount of hits . gps speed was 1.7 to 2.4 .
  22. Keuka meeting According to the Keuka Lake Association web site there will be a DEC meeting at Keuka College at 6:30 on June 12 concerning the Keuka Lake fishery. Alewife die off and fisheries health will be discussed. Should be interesting.
  23. There seems to be very few (if any) smelt left in Keuka, but what about the sawbellies. Are they on the decline as well?
  24. Not doing anything or not marking anything up by state park this morning. Anybody doing anything different? Sent from my SM-N910V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  25. Anyone know how shocking was at Cold Brook???
