Cayuga Lake out of Myers Park 9/1 AM
Guided Rob and Kathy for a 1/2 day starting around 7 am. I guided Rob back in 2005 – one of the first trips I ever did, so it was cool seeing him again (he lives in Colorado.) I expected fishing to be pretty hot today, but it's definitely slowed down a few notches (at least for us.) We still had a good AM with 8 fish landed – mostly 20" to 26"ers. We had a lot of fish around us all AM, but they weren't hitting particularly good. We had some momentary hookups and a lot of short hits. Some of it was likely the weather conditions – I like the sun this time of year. But Seneca was hot this AM. Cayuga usually slows a few notches in September, though some hot fishing can still be had, but the reckless day-in and day-out feeding usually ceases and the fish get a bit more selective in their heavy feeding windows. So all in all, a good morning of fishing, but slower than the hot bite of the past month on Cayuga. I'm on Seneca and Keuka Lakes later this week, so that should be interesting.
BTW – This Saturday 9/6 remains open. I don't have many dates left in September. I expect Owasco Lake to turn on soon, but we shall see!
The ramp at Myers was packed for the Labor Day Holiday. Let the real fishing season start now!!!
