Kicking off the Season

We’ve been on a  handful of charters and fishing excursions. It’s been a great year so far in terms of weather.

This weekend marks our first kayak tour of the season, we can’t wait to get out on Seneca Lake and take in it’s natural beauty. We have heard some reports of a male bald eagle making his rounds at the south end of the lake, so we hope to snap some photos to share.  As always kayak rentals are available on the weekends, and 7-days a week starting June 27th.

Oh the sights you will see…

Another evening paddle is in the books.  We had near perfect conditions, as the lake laid down after a day of stormy Finger Lakes weather.  One nice thing about Seneca Lake, is that you will nearly never paddle the same conditions twice.

In addition to the pristine waters on the lake, we were treated to a few pleasant surprises.  As always watching the True Love sail past you is a sight to behold, but this night we witnessed the excitement of a sea plane making its landing on Seneca Lake.  As soon as we heard the hum of the single engine plane overhead, we all paused our paddling so we could take in the full experience.  The yellow sea plane banked over the Harbor Hotel then descended upon us as we floated along silently in awe.

Sunset Paddle

Just yesterday we took a tour of all girls out on a sunset paddle.  We had a few first-timers, and some experienced paddlers, and all-together it was a great group to go out with and enjoy a beautiful Seneca Lake sunset.

We set off the beach from the Village Marina around 6:20 p.m. Paddling north from there, we made our way past the Painted Rocks. In the distance we were greeted with views of the True Love sailboat against the serene backdrop of Seneca Lake.  There was a decent north wind in our faces as we headed to Hector Falls, but this group was up for the challenge.

Once we got to Hector Falls, the sun turned peachy-orange and there was an golden hue set against the falls. A playful bunch, these women splashed and laughed their way down the grass-lined canal to the base of Hector Falls.

After a few dozen camera clicks, the girls decided to head back to Watkins Glen.  As the sun got lower in the sky, the moon rose higher, and the blue herons flew overhead to their nests for the evening. Paddling toward the south end of Seneca Lake, the skies enveloped us with their pinkish-blues and the indigo blue lake water peacefully led our party back to the Seneca Harbor Marina.

Chasing Salmon on a fly rod!

We had an awesome summer season with our fly fishing, fishing charters and kayak rentals in the Finger Lakes. With fall coming we look forward to chasing King and Coho salmon, Atlantic salmon, steelhead and monster browns. The spawing run has begun in the Salmon river in Pulaski and we have begun our season of guided fly fishing trips for these magnificant fish. Soon the fish will be filling the other lake Ontario tributaries that we fish such as Maxwell Creek, Bear creek , Webster creek and Irondaquiot creek. Soon the Finger Lakes tributaries will also begin there runs of Brown trout and Atlantic salmon. October and November are excellent times to be on the water.
