Cayuga Lake 8/28 AM


Fishing remains excellent for lake trout. Picked up Ed and Denise at Taughannock Park via boat and we headed up the lake. The good news is that larger fish are moving in. Why we hadn’t caught many 27″+ fish earlier in the season remains a mystery. I think we were content catching the large numbers of smaller lakers grouped up around Aurora and AES, thus we didn’t look elsewhere. Many larger fish could’ve been suspended too. But Ed and Denise did great landing around 14 fish, of which 4 or 5 ranged from 27″ to 30″+. A couple wild ones in the mix and one live lamprey came up. The larger fish all have well healed lamprey hits. It got windy. Fish remain deep, which is normal for this time of year – around 85′ give or take 10′.
