Conesus Lake, approximately 10 miles west of Honeoye Lake, also offers excellent opportunities for largemouth bass. Fish, in the six-pound class, are taken here annually. And, for the hearty souls, the smallmouth bass fishing really explodes here, starting sometime in October, right up until ice-up. Three to five-pound smallmouth are just waiting to give you a fight you won't soon forget.
