Finger Lakes Guide Service

Finger Lakes Guide Service has a trip with your name on it along the stunning waters of Skaneateles.

The fish in these waters include Lake Trout, Rainbow Trout (Steelhead), Walleye, Smallmouth Bass, and more with any luck. On these trips, it’s common to troll using light tackle.

Your vessel for the day is a 16’ Aluminum boat that holds up to 2 passengers. It has downriggers and everything else you need for a productive day on the water. Capt. Justin will supply rods and reels for you, as well as lures. Live bait is on offer.

You will need to get a local fishing license before the trip. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain. Some species may be off-limits or require a special tag, so make sure you know what to expect. It’s recommended to bring sunglasses, a hat, sunscreen (non-spray), and bottled water.
