Chautauqua BassDuring netting operations on Chautauqua Lake this past spring, DEC biologists handled the largest number of muskies since the netting program began in 1978. Of the 472 fish captured, 95 were over the 40 inch minimum size limit and 2 were over 50 inches in length. Given the abundance of trophy muskies in the lake, its ranking as one of the top 100 bass waters in the country and the resurgence of the walleye fishery, Chautauqua Lake can’t be beat for those seeking a memorable warmwater fishing experience. To learn more, contact the DEC Region 9 office.
