Cayuga Lake 8/13 + 15


8/13: Got out with Greg for an abbreviated full day. He had some great fishing with 6 nice browns landed to 26.5″ as well as a couple lakers. Browns are active in many parts of Cayuga Lake right now. The usual plastics did the trick. All fish released today.

8/15: Guided Joe and his son Josh as well as Josh’s friend Jacob for a 1/2 day. I had Monday off and a trip scheduled for Sunday but unfortunately my Sunday people hit a boulder while driving on the way up early in the AM so they had to cancel. I was able to book Joe at the last minute. They got lucky with some great fishing!

The bite was red-hot Monday AM with the guys hooking a couple doubles and even a triple! It was a “catch ’em and eat ’em” mission and the guys managed to limit out numbers-wise in around an hour and a half. We kept a couple of slots open and were able to fill them with quality fish a bit later in the morning. We called it a day early and the guys were able to get on their way after a few days of fishing in the area.

I’m not sure if this is a trend or not but I have been booking much earlier in the season thus far this year than ever before. In past seasons I usually had a few days or 1/2 days available within the coming week and certainly month. That has not been the case over the past two months. If you are looking to get out and fish in September and onwards, book now!
