Cayuga Lake out of Myers Park 8/5 – 8/7


Lake trout action continues to be hot on Cayuga Lake.  August going into mid-September is typically a great time to fish for trout/salmon here.  Fish are feeding heavily in anticipation of spawning later the fall and in the case of rainbows, next spring.   Last year, August fishing was decent but not as good as usual on Cayuga Lake, probably due to the excessive amount of rain we had.

August 21st remains open for a full or half-day trip.  In September, I’m down to the 2nd, 3rd, 9th + 10th (both AM Cayuga), 11th, 18th, 25th and 28th.   October and onwards are wide-open.

8/5:  Guided August regulars Leo and Ada for a full day.  This time they were joined by their friend Victor.  He hadn’t done much fishing before, although he did some back when he was a lot younger.  Leo and Ada are on vacation and like to start later in the morning, so we met around 8 am.  This was a “catch ’em and eat ’em” mission and we managed to fill a limit of lake trout which also included one rainbow trout.   Some smaller trout were released.

8/6:  Today I did a half-day trip with Kevin and his 13-year-old daughter Emma.  We had some hot fishing to start at 6:30 am, a little lull and then more good fishing before we knocked off.  Emma managed one small rainbow in addition to a few lake trout.  Kevin caught plenty of nice lakers for a solid double-digit half-day.

8/7:  Today was a full day trip with Tony and his sons, Paul and Kyle.  Tony has a lot of fishing experience and always manages to make the best of what we’re given on the water.  His boys gave him a good run for his money today.  All in all, a terrific double-digit day with Paul’s beautiful 26″range rainbow making things extra special.  He lost another non-laker earlier that was also probably a bow.
