Cayuga/Dean’s Sunday 5/14


Fished Cayuga for lakers most of the day with Willy. Fishing was somewhat slow with occasional bursts. The wind was a rare easterly, which made covering water difficult. It was encouraging to see trout moving up into shallower water. Fly-fishing these lakers is a definite possibility and that’s what we worked on. Willy nailed a nice laker on a double bunny fly and 30′ sinking head. Fly-fishing became difficult with the wind direction, so we did a bit of jigging. We picked up a few nice lakers up to 30″ and 10lbs.

Pickerel/pike fishing was slow – but mainly due to the wind. I did catch a nice 20″+ largemouth bass on a streamer while pikin’. Perch are all over the place. Water temps are up to 61 at the north end, and around 52 mid-lake off Dean’s. I’ll be doing some serious pike fishing over the next 2 weeks, stay tuned!
