Silver Lake (finger lakes), NY - advice - warm days cold nights

Recommended Posts



I'm trying to get out on the water as much as possible and the closest finger lake to me is Silver Lake. I haven't fished the lake enough to really know where to find them, especially in the weather where nights are in the 30s and day temps are 50-60s.


This week I went out and the water temp ranged from 40-45* based on location on the lake. I saw fish (don't know if they were bass) in the center of the lake where its ~35 ft deep. Fish were suspended from 10ft to the bottom but I couldn't get any to bite.


I want to go back next Wednesday with a game plan. Simply put, I don't know enough about breaking lakes down esp with cold water.


Docks were not out yet, there were no metal structures to radiate heat down like dock poles.


I stayed towards the south end of the lake as I am using a Kayak with trolling motor. I can make a run to the North, it's on my list of things to do, the lake isn't large.



The weather for the next 10 days for context, thank you!
