Cayuga Lake 9/23


Guided a full day with Patrick and his brother Mike starting around 7 am out of Myers. Fishing started out very good with 5 lakers landed within the first 90 minutes or so. Then the bite really slowed for us. The guys missed some good hits but it was tough. Around 2 pm the fish started cooperating again and they landed another 6 fish on the day. Nothing huge and no wild fish today. They mostly ran 23" to 26". All clean fish with no fresh lamprey wounds. One laker from the AM bite spit up a live alewive.

The high pressure systems that are common this time of year make for great, comfortable conditions out on the water, but can make for a challenging bite. Both white and chartreuse plastics produced. Water temps are around 70 on top. We'll likely see the upper 60s soon. Around 80' to 110' was best.
