Conditions : Chautauqua Lake: Anglers are catching suspended crappie in the sheltered bays in 6 to 10 feet of water. Morning and evening hours have been best. Good locations to target crappie in the south basin include Ashville Bay, Burtis Bay, Cheney Point, Lakewood Bar, Rock Island and Grass Island. In the north basin, Bemus Bay, Whitney Bay, Dewittville Bay, Magnolia Bay and the flats off Mayville are worth a try. Small jigs (1/32 and 1/64 ounce) with a small minnow, one inch tube or other small plastic and fished under a pencil float, works well for crappie. Anglers continue to see a good yellow perch bite in nearshore areas, but they are showing in deeper areas as well. Bullhead fishing has been improving along shorelines. Worms, leeches or chicken livers fished on the bottom work well. Walleye season is closed until the 1st Saturday in May.
