Cayuga Lake out of Myers 9/15 AM


Guided Dave and his wife Jean for 1/2 day today. They were camping at Taughannock so I swung by via boat just after 6:45 am and we were underway in the fog. Fishing was pretty darn good for mid-September with a nearly full moon. They landed their limit of 6 solid lakers up to 26" – mostly males with the biggest fish being a hen. A sublegal salmon was landed and a nicer legal sized one lost. The bite slowed for us around 10 am, but overall it was good fishing. I expect good fishing for mostly males to hold up throughout the fall. I used to jig lakers on the spawning points around Taughannock back in the 1990s, but now I prefer to fish for and guide for feeding fish. You'll tend to find more of those a bit aways from the park.
