3rd Saturday in May- Nov. 30th
The Beast of the East!!! What else needs to be said about Chautauqua Lake? A natural kettle lake roughly 13,000 acres in size, depths up to 75 foot, this lake is a musky factory!! The Chautauqua musky season doesn't open until the 3rd Saturday in May (to protect the spawning fish) and is closed on December 1st. Whether casting, trolling, or jigging, this lake offers anglers some of the best musky fishing the United States has to offer for not only numbers, but some very large muskies!!
