Cayuga Lake out of Long Point 7/26


Guided Greg and his son Alex for a full day. We mostly targeted lake trout and spent a little time bass fishing. The good news is that the lake has cleared markedly since the rain of the past 4 days or so. Fish are getting more active. Fishing started out good with Alex nabbing the first couple lakers. The guys wound up with around 8 or 9 solid fish up to 28″ long. A lot of hits were missed too. One beautiful salmon or rainbow hit below the boat and got off after a short but fierce battle.

We worked a couple downlake areas for bass and found some fish shallow that were spooky. One nice largemouth came on a Senko. Plenty of perch and some bluegills/sunfish are around. We also saw some drum and the usual big carp. Boat traffic was light.
