CHAUTAUQUA, N.Y. – FLW College Fishing is headed to Chautauqua Lake Aug. 23 for the final regular-season stop in the Northern Conference. Up to 50 college teams will be competing for a top award of $2,000 and a berth in the Northern Conference Invitational tournament.

“Chautauqua is a really good place to fish. It’s my favorite place to go,” said Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes pro Dave Lefebre, an 11-time Forrest Wood Cup qualifier. “It’s a super, super good lake. I like the diversity. It has a little stain to it, and there is a lot of target fishing there. The average fish is three pounds or better.

“I’m not sure if it is officially one of the Finger Lakes, but it fishes like one of them,” said Lefebre, who lives in nearby Erie, Pa. “It is full of both largemouth and smallmouth. This tournament can definitely be won with either species, but because of the time of year it will probably be mostly largemouth.”

Lefebre said that the competitors would have a variety of cover to fish, ranging from docks and canals to milfoil and pads.

“Big worms are really good for largemouth there, but that takes you out of the ballpark for a lucky smallmouth bite,” said Lefebre. “Jigs, Senkos, shallow crankbaits, topwater frogs and spinnerbaits could all be good. Topwater baits could really play too.”

Lefebre estimated that the winning weight would be 21 to 23 pounds.

Anglers will take off from Long Point State Park located at 4459 Route 430 in Chautauqua at 6:30 a.m. Weigh-in will be held at the takeoff location starting at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday. Takeoff and weigh-in are free and open to the public.
