Chautauqua Lake Fishing

Located in the southwest part of New York is one of the state’s best bass-fishing lakes – Chautauqua Lake. This 13,000-acre lake contains two basins and more than 40 miles of shoreline. Within these waters is a plentiful supply of vegetation and weeds that create the perfect fish habitat. Chautauqua Lakes supports many fish species, including bass, crappie, walleye, sunfish, perch and muskie. The largemouth bass, smallmouth bass and muskie here grow particularly large. In the spring and fall, you can enjoy excellent fishing from the shoreline. In the summer, boat fishing is better because this is when the fish move to deeper water. There are many boat launch ramps around the lake to help you get on the water. And in the winter, head over to ice fish for walleye, perch, and crappie.
