Cowanesque Lake
« on: June 25, 2014, 03:47:10 PM »
Me and a few buddies do a Cowanesque Lake trip every year, we get two campsites right on the lake at Tompkins Campground!  Really nice lake to fish/camp, the older couple who manage the campground are top notch as well!  This is a big lake, never very crowded and the bass were biting hot and heavy!  Fishing the falls a friend of mine spotted a nice musky 3 feet off the shoreline, second cast he had it on…for about a second then it was GONE!

Both these bass were caught on a 5” Senko, rigged wacky – ever get a chance to fish Cowanesque Lake, make it happen…and I’ll come with ya!   :P

That's a nice lake to fish. I head up that way a couple times a month. I've caught a couple decent bass out of there but nothing like that first pic! Nice catch.
kayaking the small water,
bass tracking the big!!!

Never weighed it, he didn't think of it until AFTER he threw it back!  ;)

It looks like Tioga County, it's managed by US Army Corps of Engineers

http://corpslakes.usace.army.mil/visitors/projects.cfm?Id=E104150

They list one campground on the lake run by the US Corps, there's probably others nearby as well.
I'd be interested in heading up, next month possibly.

Didn't want to start another thread, but here are some pics of this past weekends lake trip!  Believe it or not, we caught that Muskie with our hands, saw it on top of the water and trolled right over to it!  Not sure if something was wrong with it, but when released it swam right away with no trouble...45 inches!  ;)
