Cayuga Lake out of Long Point 6/15


Guided Dan, his brother Dave and Dave’s son Jay for close to a full day today. We started at 6:30 am and were blown off by rain/thunderstorms around 1 pm. Dan has an extensive background in fisheries/fishing and it was a great day spent learning about his (now) home waters around the Adirondacks as well as about some area history pertaining to fishing/fisheries. He was one of the researchers that determined stocking Sebago strain salmon (inlet spawners) would be better than the outlet spawners we previously had, so I feel partially indebted to him.

Fishing was pretty much top-notch today – as has been the case on Cayuga Lake over the past few weeks since the high water settled out. The guys landed around 25 solid lakers and lost a bunch more. One nice salmon almost made it to the net. Most of our fish came pretty shallow today. Top fish was around 27.5″. One live lamprey came up. One wild fish. I have not seen a whole lot of wild fish this year for what it’s worth.
