Cayuga Lake out of Long Point 4/29

Reports

I had a full day trip with Jeremy scheduled for this past Saturday, but the downright brutal conditions (wind/cold/rain/snow) necessitated us to postpone the trip until today. Today was my last day of teaching fly-fishing over at Cornell for the spring semester so we had to make the trip a 6 hour one instead of eight. We started just after 7 am and fortunately the bite was good from the get-go. We had a great day overall with 12 lakers landed, including three wild fish. A bunch were dropped as well – probably another 10 to 12. Baitfish are moving up gradually. The water level was great, temps were in the low 40s and we had the lake to ourselves the entire time until we came in at 1 pm. Fantastic day and it was good to catch up with Jeremy, whom I hadn't seen in around 5 years.
