Cayuga Lake February 7/8
Spent a couple short days out on Cayuga Lake checking things out. Water temps are obviously still very cold – around 35/36 degrees. Pike are still hitting steamers well in around 12′ to 17′ of water. I caught a few and they ranged from around 27″ to 33″. Nice fish.
Salmon and brown trout are hitting well around Taughannock point. I picked up a small salmon on a streamer and missed what was probably a good fish. Only fished for a little over 2 hours. Expect good to excellent salmon fishing this season on Cayuga Lake.
