Honeoye and Conesus Lakes

Conesus has been good for tournaments but tough for guiding. I have to locate fish that novices can catch and they are difficult to locate this year. Places that normally hold good bass are not producing. The catch ratio is much lower than past years and Conesus is a much better lake than she has shown. I have noticed that the lake seems to be very busy with both local traffic and the boat ramp being full.

Honeoye Lake has been on a downturn for the past three weeks. Just when things seem to be picking up, either boat traffic or wind will dirty the water and the fishing suffers. Many of the bass are quite thin and I attribute that to their inability to see the forage. The algae bloom this year has not been as bad as the past couple of years, however we still have a bloom. Soon the water will start to cool and we should be into the Fall patterns. Do not be afraid to go shallow, much like the Spring time and fish close to shore.

With the water close to cooling, be safe, wear your life vest and maintain a proper lookout.

Keep a proper lookout and wear your life jacket.
