Fish Forecast, 8/22/13


Niagara Gazette — 5. Chautauqua Lake

Not too much changed from last week. Weed edges are still key, no matter what kind of fish you want to try and target – from panfish and bass to musky. Use minnows, crayfish or plastics for bass; worms for panfish on the bottom. Musky can be picked up trolling or casting large bucktail spinners, large body baits or large tubes.

6. Finger Lakes-Inland Waters

• Keuka Lake – Vertical jigging is the way to go for lake trout. Use plastics in 65-100 feet of water off the Bluff. Cut bait fished on the bottom will also work for you. Trolling will also catch you fish with spoons or flasher-fly 65-75 feet down over 100-165 feet of water.
