Cayuga Lake out of Taughannock 9/26


Guided a full day starting at 7:30 with Clem and Donna. Fishing was very good throughout the day with peak fishing early and late. It was a fun trip with gorgeous weather. We found fish on both sides of the lake near AES and north of Taughannock. Best laker was around 28″ with plenty of nice 24″ to 25″ eating sized fish (we released everything today.) Donna also managed two landlocks – a 16 1/2″er and a gorgeous silvery 26″ male (with a nice hooked jaw) that we also released unharmed. They landed over a dozen nice fish today!

Shore fishers will be able to catch some nice salmon off Taughannock Creek’s mouth through October depending on the winds and weather conditions. These fish will hammer streamers, spoons, jigs and stickbaits! Don’t be surprised if you catch a big brown either.

Water temps remain around 67 on top. Plenty of bait is everywhere. Best laker action ranged between 85′ and 110′.

I have a ton of great photos of this year’s fishing, but I’m going to have to wait until we get an unfishable weather stretch before I post them. There’s too much good to great fishing going on now! And I’m too busy…
