Sunday May 8th, 2022 Honeoye Lake Water Quality

Surface Water Temperature: 56.8 F

Water Clarity: 11.9 Feet

Lake Level: 803.7 Feet above sea level

Lake Level Relative to Weir: +0.5 Feet

Sunday May 8th, 2022 was a great day to be boating or fishing on Honeoye Lake!

Picture was taken late morning looking NW from near the NYS Public Boat Launch.

Observations: Sunday (5/8/22), The water clarity was good at 11.9 feet and there was no visible algae in the water column. The lake is well mixed with plenty of dissolved oxygen in the deep water to keep the phosphorus bound to iron in the bottom sediments. We will be collecting and posting water quality data weekly now. Usually, every Monday evening.

This is a good time to go Crappie fishing in Honeoye Lake. Crappies are usually found in shallow water in the spring when the water temperature is between 55-60 F.

Always use your own visual assessment before making contact with the lake water at this time of year as the blue-green algae situation can change daily if not hourly. Please regularly check the DEC HABs alert map for more detailed updates on Honeoye Lake HABs alerts:
