Cayuga Lake out of Taughannock 4/3


Got out today at 11 am with my friend Willy. We were hoping for some good trout/salmon action. Things started out encouragingly with a few nice follows from some decent salmon. Willy missed a hit, then I hooked up with a fish around 18″ or 19″ on a streamer. I lost the fish as it managed to get under the boat near my trolling motor. We spent a lot of time working a lot of areas but couldn’t manage anything else. Fish seem to have scattered or moved out a bit after yesterday’s strong winds (gusts to over 35 mph). The lake level is at full-pool and temps are at 38. The warmest water we found was around 41 degrees off the mouth of Taughannock Creek. Creek mouths should start to produce some good fishing. I expect fishing to improve day by day.
