Cayuga Lake out of Taughannock 3/27


Got out from 2 to 6 pm today. Tried some lake trout jigging for around 3 hours with no luck. The overcast/dark skies probably were partly to blame for the lack of fish action. I marked decent numbers of fish from around 80′ to 150′ of water along the lake’s east shore. Cayuga AES was packed with shore fishermen, so I didn’t fish there. My guess is that the action must be good over there. At least 7 people were there all afternoon.

Tried a little salmon fishing with no luck. The west winds are not good for my style of salmon fishing, so I wasn’t surprised. Expect good to excellent salmon action once the northerlies/southerlies resume. Expect good lake trout jigging action on sunny days and further north towards the Dean’s area. Lake temps are at 37 degrees.
