Cayuga Lake out of Taughannock 4/8


Spent 4 hours on Cayuga Lake salmon fishing today. Nothing special happening. I’d give Cayuga another 4 or 5 days before I fish it again. Lots of masses of murky debris laden water from the heavy rains drifting around out there. Found a few small fish just North of Taughannock and we also had a few follows/one hookup along the southwest shore. Fish were in very shallow water. Lake temps were around 37 to 38 degrees. Winds were light out of the north to start then cranked up good. Expect a lot of good shore fishing opportunities at “the Wall” aka Lighthouse Pier in Ithaca. The east shore/Esty Point and Myers should start fishing well too within 10 days or so for wading anglers.
