Cayuga Lake 3/7/05
Checked out the lake today for a little over 3 hours. Landed a beautiful 25″ landlocked salmon that was fat – probably over 5.5lbs. No lamprey marks at all. The fish was stuffed with alewives and layered with fat.
I caught it on a new fly that I developed that looks to be very promising. 😉 Can’t wait to tie some more of these flies and keep developing the patterns. Water temp was 35. Lake level is LOW. I missed 2 other solid hits/fish. I’m praying for more cold weather and a week of sunny 35 degree weather. That will get this winter fishing in full swing!
