Expanding on a theme

As Steve suggested in an earlier email to the group, and much like the Snow Geese migration, I am announcing the annual spawning run of Northern Pike and Walleye in Conesus Inlet.

Every Spring as the ice starts to melt on Conesus Lake[the lake is still frozen solid] the Northern Pike and Walleye start a spawning run up Conesus Inlet creek to the swamp. At the swamp is a man-made overflow with a shallow ledge leading up to it. The fish will swim up to the overspill and attempt to jump it into the swamp. Most fail, however, this is an unique opportunity to see hundreds of these fish up close.

The Northern's are running now and are very active. Towards the end of April the Walleye start their run. With luck, you may even see the resident Bald Eagle family that also live in the swamp area

I have created an album for these images and placed a few images into it. Please feel free to add to it.

There is a convenient parking area and a short walk to the overspill area. This is at the South end of Conesus Lake, at the corner of route 256 and Sliker Hill Road. GPS coordinates: lat. 42.715 lon [masked]

I have just moved from Webster to Conesus Lake and now live about 2 minutes from this site. If anyone would like any more information please let me know. If any one wants to meet me there also let me know. Coffee and restroom available if needed
