Conditions : Chautauqua Lake: Walleye fishing has been a little slow, but anglers are still picking up a few along weed edges in both basins. Target walleye by trolling with jointed stickbaits and worm harnesses or by drifting and jigging with blade baits (cicada, silver buddy) or jigs with nightcrawlers or leeches. Muskellunge anglers employ a couple different strategies, and both can be productive. Some anglers troll along weed edges, targeting musky that are waiting to ambush preyfish. Others troll in deeper water of 25-30 feet of water, targeting large musky that are suspended in the water column. Good trolling lures include perch pattern crankbaits, large jointed stickbaits, hot-n-tots and bucktail trolling spinners. Largemouth bass fishing has been good along weed edges, around docks and in open pockets within weed beds. Top water lures, weedless rigged power worms and wacky rigged senkos work well.
