Cayuga Lake out of Dean’s Cove 4/13


Guided the Hermans for a 1/2 day today. Conditions weren’t the greatest for a comfortable spring trip but they weren’t too bad. We had light north winds, overcast skies and some cold misty rain. Lake trout action was good, with 8 nice fish landed, including 3 over 28″. We had some good fish dropped as well. Plenty of fish were available throughout the deep flats out of Dean’s. 140′ to 180′ was best. We marked fish deeper too.

We did have one laker come up with two lampreys attached and one other laker come up with a lamprey. Overall, wounding wasn’t bad though, with most fish healthy and clean looking. Good day on the water! For anyone interested, bullheads are starting to show up around murky creek mouths.
