Capt. Dick's Fishing Journal

Reports from the waters of Keuka Lake

Hi, Folks!

We are back to Keuka for the Summer.  The boat is in the water

and we are tracking  down some Keuka Trout.

Due to the Corona Virus, the State of New York  

has set up Guidelines to reopen the business.

You will find them listed on our HOME PAGE and our RATES PAGE.

Thank you all who have looked at our website.

I will  let you know what is going on.

Thanks,

Capt. Dick

Here are some photos of the Spiney Water Fleas and what they can do to your fishing line.
