Cayuga Lake out of Myers Park 8/31
Guided Leo and Ada from Sunday again, along with their friend Viktor. We got underway at around 8:15 am. They were on a catch ’em and eat ’em mission and all the stars (maybe it was the moon!) were aligned. Fishing was excellent and we had our three-person limit in 3.5 hours. We did some catch and release fishing for a couple of hours afterwards and finished up the day with a triple, which wound up being a big mess of tangled lines. I had to hand-line two of the three trout in. Two rainbows were part of our catch on the day and others were around. Best one was 25″ and wild. I did a few drops while the crew had lunch and actually pulled my jig away from a beautifully striped bow around 22″ or so.
Excellent day overall and perfect weather. Very few boats were out. Surface temps were 70. I will be taking a two-day “vacation” and then I am out again Sunday. Looks like air temps are heading up again from Sunday through Wednesday.
I forgot to mention in my last report on Owasco Lake that we did see a lot of green particulates in the water. Owasco Lake may be heading for a major algae bloom shortly. We’ll see what happens.
