    What you need to know about fishing Chautauqua Lake

    Chautauqua Lake is located in western New York, and is a top destination in the region. Anglers can choose to target Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, Walleye, Muskie, Northern Pike, and many panfish species. This lake is divided into a “North” and “South” region, the northern half has clearer water while the southern half is a bit more stained. Most of the smallmouth are caught in the northern region of the lake, while muskie are often found in the southern half. Boat docks can be a great place to target all species of fish due to the fact that the lake has such a steep drop off near the shore. These docks can be a sanctuary for fish.
