New York State Trip

Recommended Posts

This wednesday, (Aug. 14) I am going to Letchworth state park (near Warsaw). Im going with my family for the day and I would like to try fishing around that area. I know Silver lake is partically next to letchworth and I think Ill try there. Anyone who has fished that lake, know of anywhere to shore fish and what works well in that lake?

 

Also, Im coming from the Buffalo direction, (from the west) and If there is any smaller lakes on the way or near there, Id definitely try them aswell.  Ive looked on google earth and it seems like there is a lot of ponds on the way there, (im guessing they are private) but any help and advice on where to fish around that area would be great.

I fish Silver roughly 150 times a season, for the last 8-10 years. Your not going to find any decent....IMHO.... shore access. There is access at the state park on the south end, you can run a frog over the massive mats down there , if you can reach them, or cast a weightless soft plastic to the edges. It's a massive 2-4 foot deep flat down there, good fish come out of those mats, BUT, not from where you can easily reach them from shore. I always catch a few every summer from the bank down there while waiting around for people I am taking out to show up, but not enough in either size, or numbers to get excited about it. The only other place I can think of is the docks, and bank at the Country Club on the west side. It's the only place your going to have shore access to deeper water. You can catch the whole range of fish the lake has to offer off that point/docks. If you just want your line tugged, drop shot the boat slips/point with a 3"-4" plastic of your choice, If you can't catch a fish there....doing that...your not going to catch one anywhere on that lake. I see people fishing off those docks often, but I have no idea if they have to ask first, so it's best to check for yourself. I have made this offer to any BR member (unless you plan on fishing against me in a tournament there LOL) before and it still stands..... just contact me, and set up a day/time that works for both, and I would be happy to give you a tour of the place via my boat, and we'll stumble onto something.
