Location Details: The Chemung River (shuh-MUHNG) is a tributary of the Susquehanna River, approximately 45 mi (72 km) long, in south central New York and northern Pennsylvania in the United States. It drains a mountainous region of the northern Allegheny Plateau in the Southern Tier of New York. The Chemung River, which originates at the confluence of the Cohocton and Tioga Rivers in Corning, offers anglers of all ages challenging and exciting opportunities to catch a wide array of warmwater fish species. Most noteworthy are smallmouth bass, superb fighters on light tackle, and walleye, first-rate table fare capable of reaching 6-7 pounds. Various panfish, including rock bass, bluegill, pumpkinseed and yellow perch are plentiful. Occasionally, tiger muskellunge (which have been stocked in recent years), have been caught in the Chemung River, providing a chance at a trophy-sized fish. While not traditionally thought of as an angling target, common carp are abundant, large and aggressive fighters while on the hook. Quality fishing opportunities in the Chemung River exist primarily in the spring, summer and fall months. There are many boat launch sites to access the river.

The best time to fish for smallmouth bass is during June and July and in the fall. Light to medium fishing tackle using minnow imitating lures, curly tail jigs, and live bait such as crayfish or minnows are your best choices. Smallmouth bass can be caught all along the Chemung River. Concentrate your efforts in deep pools or at the base of riffle areas. Most walleye are caught in the deep pools in the Corning area, or downstream of Elmira during late spring or early fall. Spinners baited with worms or minnows will usually attract a walleye, although curly tail jigs or minnow imitation lures will also work. Sunfish can usually be caught throughout the year. Light tackle baited with crickets, worms, or small spinnerbaits or spinners are your best bet. Sunfish can be found in deep pools around cover, usually treetops, boulders, or riprap.
