Cayuga Lake out of Myers Park 9/9, 11, 12
Guided three 1/2 day trips over the past four days. Lake trout action has improved and remains very good as of today, the 12th.
9/9 AM: Guided Steve and his wife Sandy starting at 7:30 am. We had a brutal trip a year ago with honking north winds ripping down the lake. I didn’t want to repeat that and neither did Steve, even though he managed a couple fish on that trip, so we moved our trip to Thursday instead of Friday. It was a good call, and despite the slow bite in the AM the fishing picked up just before we quit and they managed to land 5 nice fish. Quite a few were lost too earlier in the day. I think our top laker was around 30″ if I remember right, 30″ or 31″ – but in that ballpark.
9/11 AM: Today was Jeff and Hoi starting at 11:30 AM. The bite was very solid and the guys landed around 8 lakers in four hours before they were ready to head in a grab a bite to eat in Ithaca. We left them biting which isn’t a bad thing. Fish looked good and ran 22″ to over 30″ again.
9/12 AM: Today I guided Jack starting at 8:30 am after he hit a few delays on the drive up. It was the best bite I’ve seen in the past few trips with him nabbing 8 fish in less than four hours. Fish ran to over 30″ again. Depths ranged from 65′ to over 120′ – which isn’t atypical for this time of year. He likes to take home his limit for his smoker and then call it a day, but the bite was good enough for him to want to do a little catch and release after he got what he wanted.
