Keuka Lake Largemouth Bass Fishing

  The Finger Lakes and Finger Lakes Tributaries have special regulations that allow exceptions to the general statewide regulations. One such exception is the Special Season on Black Bass fishing in Conesus, Hemlock, Canadice, Canandaigua, Honeoye, Keuka and Seneca lakes from the first Saturday in May thru the Friday before the third Saturday in June, Catch and Release fishing is allowed.

  The two primary species of bass inhabiting N.Y. State waters are smallmouth and largemouth bass. Both species may be found in most all of the states lakes and rivers. The average bass caught is between 1 and 5 pounds, but there are many fish taken every year over 5 pounds. Bass fisherman by majority are a catch and release group so that affords this species a bit more protection than they would other wise receive.

  Tackle for bass fishing is as simple as you want it to be, or can be as complex as you want with many tournament fisherman having 5 or 6 rods all rigged with different lines and lures for certain fishing conditions. Most any medium action rod 6 foot in length and spooled with 10 or 12 pound test line would be sufficient for most fishing conditions.

  The best largemouth bass fishing is in the Finger Lakes can be found on Cayuga, Keuka, and Seneca Lakes. Lake Champlain, Black Lake, Chautauqua Lake, and many of the reservoirs outside oy New York City offers some trophy bass fishing as well.
