Trolling in the south end during April and May is good for Atlantic salmon, rainbow trout, brown trout and northern pike. Tributary fishing is good for rainbow trout during April in Cayuga Inlet, Fall Creek and Salmon Creek. Lake trout can be found in deeper water during summer by trolling and vertical jigging. Largemouth bass fishing is productive at the north end during spring and summer. Atlantic salmon fishing in tributaries like Fall Creek and Salmon Creek is good during the fall. Ice fishing in north end for panfish and pickerel can be good when there is sufficient ice. Shore fishing with minnows for trout and salmon at Milliken Station during winter can also be good. Largemouth bass fishing is popular on the north end of the lake and has become a favorite stop for professional bass tournaments.Lake trout are being caught in 80 to 150 foot of water by anglers vertical jigging or trolling. Bass are being caught in the north end on a variety of baits. There are a lot of pickerel up there as well so it may pay to have some wire leaders handy if you start getting "bit off" while bass fishing.
