Question Fishing Little Tupper Lake - Early Septmeber

So my plans are finally nailed down for a 3-4 night camping trip to LTL the week after Labor Day. Thanks to everyone who answered my questions and gave me suggestions back in January on this forum!

My girl and I have our fishing licenses and are looking forward to doing some fishing while there. I am not a fly fisherman, and will just be using some light-medium action spinning rods and I like to use artificial lures.

Can anyone give me some ideas of what's biting and what we should use that might get some action while up there in early September?

Thanks!

From what I hear mostly smallmouths with the possibility of an occasional brook trout.

Severn,

As Glen mentioned, the Bass should be biting.
You should be able to catch them... morning, noon, and night
...using nearly anything.

Just in case, I'll say a prayer.
It goes like this:

Severn!
Severn! ...Awaits you there.

Severn, Severn!
your servant comes in bells

Please, don't forsake him

Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart.

Last summer I had some fun with some spinners and a blood colored rapala.
Keep in mind the regs on no live bait, and catch & release only for brook trout (carefully) & enjoy. Heading back there again soon too.

Thanks everyone. Smallies are fine with me, and if any trout want to make my acquaintance that's all the better. Can't wait!

Perhaps the Bass - o - Matic will come in handy:

The ever controversial Splake are biting on worms. Smallies will take the usual paraphernalia, was out all last week in the Fulton Chain. Occasional Perch, fish deep or the little buggers will steal your bait.

LTL has splake?

Just a reminder that the NYSDEC regulations for Little Tupper Lake, Round Lake, & Rock Pond call for artificial lures only...

Regulations are in place to protect the native brook trout. Only artificial lures may be used - the use of bait fish or worms is prohibited on these water bodies.

Sorry. Was talking about the Fulton Chain not the LTL.

Are there actually smallmouths in LT? All I've ever caught or seen were largemouths.
