Cayuga Lake out of Long Point 6/19 AM


Guided Mark for a 1/2 day starting at 6:30 am. The bite was better than yesterday but probably not quite as good as Friday’s. He managed to land 8 solid fish from around 20″ up to 27″. We finally had one laker come up with a live lamprey on it, but that’s been the only lamprey I’ve seen in quite some time. Boat traffic wasn’t as heavy as it had been in the AM but picked up later on.

The big news if you want to call it that, is that a thermocline is just starting to form. It is pretty weak but clearly there. We had our best action from around 65′ to 90′ today on the usual plastics.

July 3rd through the 5th remain open for trips. Most people like to relax on that holiday but if you like to fish, the lake is usually very quiet until around 11 am. So it’s a good day to get out with a lot of people sleeping in nursing hangovers. I am booked solidly until the 3rd so either way, I’m happy to have a day or few days off. I expect the good to excellent fishing to continue.
