Conditions : Chautauqua Lake: Submerged weed beds are relatively sparse this year, lake-wide. Find the weed beds and you will find a variety of warmwater fish species. Local guide Mike Sperry of Chautauqua Reel Outdoors sends word that muskellunge fishing is picking up after a couple week lull. Casters are doing well along weed edges with large jerkbaits and crankbaits. Walleye catches have been decent for seasoned anglers, mostly in the north basin. Jigging around weeds with smaller crappie jigs has worked well. Anglers are also picking up a walleye or two by casting stickbaits from shore at night. Largemouth bass fishing remains strong in the shallows. Live shiners, topwater lures, stickbaits, tubes and jigs with plastics are good bass baits. Small minnows and worms produce a nice mix of perch and sunfish around weed beds.
