If it can be caught in freshwater, the Finger Lakes nearly has it all. Fishing the Finger Lakes gives an insider's look at the where, when, and how of fishing these fabled waters, from a seasoned angler who has fished this area intensively. Fishing the Finger Lakes covers all eleven of the Finger Lakes, plus their major tributary rivers and streams, along with significant smaller lakes and ponds of the region. The book details where to fish for selected species, gives seasonal tips on when the fishing is best, and covers tackle and technique anglers can employ for maximum success.
