Cayuga Lake out of Myers 7/12 AM


Guided the Hermans for a half day today. I picked them up via boat at Taughannock around 6:30 am and we headed north. Fishing had its moments for the first hour or two. Eleonore had a flurry in which she was hooking a fish with every drop of the jig. Overall, 6 fish were landed. They all ran smaller than what we had been catching for most of the season.

Weather radar indicated a large band of heavy rain and possible storms moving towards our location so we made a run south back towards Taughannock. Most of the heavy stuff dissapated, so we wound up fishing closer to port. Given that the half day trip was nearly over, it didn’t make sense to run back north. Another bite or two were had and we saw some follows on the sonar but that was it for the day. There was plenty of bait nearly everywhere we tried today. Most migratory schools of lakers remain roughly from the power plant north to Levanna/Deans. Over the next three weeks we should start seeing decent numbers of fish south of Rocky Dock. For now it’s most likely non-migratory lakers and the usual salmon/rainbows/browns south of there.
