Perch, Bluegill, Crappies, Pickerel all are fun on short ice jigging rods with 2 pound test line
   This is the results of a good days ice fishing on Lamoka Lake. Perch, Bluegill, Crappies, Pickerel all are fun on short ice jigging rods with 2 pound test line. Hard water fishing as it is called by the die hard fisherman can be quite fun but be sure the ice is safe and use the buddy system. Don't go alone. An ice auger and a five gallon bucket who knew it could be so much fun. Due to the mild winters of the last few years the ice fishing season has been short. Don't wait if you get the chance go go go!

Ice Fishing on Lamoka Lake

  Waneta and Lamoka Lakes are located between Keuka and Seneca Lakes. Both lakes were formed by the same glaciers that formed the Finger Lakes, but on a much smaller scale. Sometimes know as the minor or baby Finger Lakes, they are not deep enough to support a trout fishery, but are a fantastic warmwater habitat. Both lakes are linked by a canal that is right on County Route 23. The DEC has a launch for each lake one on each side of the road. These two lakes are very popular with bass fisherman and can be very crowded on the weekends.

  Both lakes have substantial fish populations comprised by the following species of fish. Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Chain Pickerel, Muskellunge, Yellow Perch, Rock Bass, Pumpkinseeds, Bluegills, Black and White Crappies, Brown Bullhead, Red Bellied Sunfish, Catfish, and Carp. Golden Shiners and Alewife (sawbelly) constitute the main forage base. This is one of the few relatively shallow lakes with such a forage base and is partly responsible for the fantastic growth rate these fish have. Muskies of over 40 pounds have been taken here and bass near the 10 pound mark are caught here as well.
