Cayuga Lake out of Taughannock 8/3 AM


There is a major triathlon going out of Taughannock tomorrow, so if you’re planning on fishing Cayuga (it’s supposed to be very, very windy,) avoid that launch in the AM.

Met Mark and Ron at the launch around 6:30 and headed north. We started around 90′ to 95′ with one or two fish landed. The temperature differential between areas of the lake is really remarkable. Laker-friendly temps were shallow and we moved into the 70′ to 80′ range. Fishing was excellent with over 10 lakers landed. Fish ranged from 18″ to 25″+. We had one nice wild laker that we released. White and chartreuse plastics did the trick. One lamprey came up – that was it, so the eels haven’t been too bad over the last couple trips. Bait was everywhere and the fish are feeding heavily. Great trip!
