Conesus Lake Fishing Report & Notes

Livonia Weather Report

Conesus Lake is 8 miles in length with a maximum depth of 66 feet. At one point it is nearly a mile wide. Conesus is one of the minor Finger Lakes in western New York. It is western-most of eleven total Finger Lakes. The lake's outlet is in Lakeville, New York a hamlet in the Town of Livonia, New York in Livingston County, south of Rochester, New York. The lake's inlet is in the Town of Conesus, New York. The lake flows south-to-north; its outlet flows into the Genesee River near Avon, New York. It is located off Interstate 390 (exit 9), about 15 miles south of Interstate 90. Conesus Lake Boat Launch is a state park at the east shore, near the village of Livonia. Conesus Lake's maximum depth is 66 feet (20 meters). The U.S.S. Lady of the Lake is reportedly sunken in Conesus Lake

Conesus Lake is warm water fishery. The lake supports the following species of fish, northern pike, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, walleye, tiger muskies, yellow perch, bluegills, pumpkinseed rock bass, and brown bullhead. When frozen over in the winter, Conesus Lake is used for snowmobiling and ice fishing.
Lake ecology
In August 2006, the NY DEC confirmed that the lake was the first outside the contiguous Great Lakes waterways to be stricken with a new strain of viral hemorrhagic septicemia (VHS), an infectious fish disease responsible for mass die-offs of many species, but not linked to any human health concerns. The disease is spread between waterways through live or frozen bait fish, roe, contaminated fishing equipment or live water wells in boats.

Fireworks during the Ring of Fire. The red lights at the bottom are flares. Every July 3, the residents of the lake participate in a tradition called the Ring of Fire, sponsored by the Conesus Lake Association. They light road flares all around the lake and shoot off fireworks. The festivities typically start at dusk, with approximately 10,000 flares lit by 10:00 PM.
