Cayuga Lake out of Long Point 10/8


Guided Tom, his brother Frank and friend Jeff today for a full day. It’s always a great time with these guys and the 8 hour plus trip felt like about 3 hours. Action was slow to start in the northern portions of the lake so we ran south. As skies began clearing after the cloudy foggy morning our action picked up markedly. Some good fish were dropped but over a dozen lakers and one small salmon were landed today. Lakers were all younger non-spawners ranging from 20″ to 27″ long. Nice clean fish for the most part and they all had some alewives in their stomachs. Best fishing was from 75′ to 120′ FOW. Gorgeous day out there. Fall foliage is still about two weeks away from peaking. It still looks awesome outside and the air temps have made for very enjoyable angling. Surface temps remain around 65 degrees.
