Cayuga Lake out of Taughannock 3/6 AM


Guided a half day trip with Chris and Greg starting around 9 am. Fishing was good for Landlocked salmon with the guys landing three nice fish in the 20″ to 22″ range. The two 20″ fish had fresh lamprey wounds on them. We kept one of the smaller fish and it had a fresh alewife in its stomach.

A couple other fish were lost and we had some follows and hits as well. Water temps were 39 degrees on top and the lake level had come up a little bit. It may drop again (it likely WILL drop again since it’s very unlikely that the DOT is raising the lake at this point in time.) Greg remembered me from way back in my old Irondequoit Creek days (1977 onwards) so that was quite the blast from the past! He was a friend of an old fishing buddy of mine.
