Cayuga Lake out of Myers 4/27
Guided Gordon for the full day starting around 8:30 am. He fly-fished the entire day, bringing his brand new Orvis Helios 7 wt. rod. Conditions weren't great to start with calm conditions and overcast skies, but in fairly short order Gordon had a hit from a very solid fish. We both saw the fish hit. After a good digging battle I slipped the net under a 27.5" brown trout. It was Gordon's best brown. Unfortunately we were not able to hook any other fish. He had another 3 grabs or so but nothing solid. Trollers we talked to did well working the warmer water. Fish are starting to set up in spring patterns but it's been a "slow turning." Water temps were 39/40 in most areas. The south end of the lake has temps upward of 49 degrees or more.
