Cayuga Lake out of Taughannock 9/27


Guided George and Jim today for the full day. They both live locally and George has joined me for a couple trips over the past couple years. We targeted lakers and fishing was tough to begin. We marked loads of fish around AES from 70′ out to 110′. Fishing was tough, especially to start. George had done the technique before and managed to land a couple fish around AES. Fishing the west shore near Taughannock yielded more fish. Jim had one get off just under the boat – a big fish. Fish started hitting well in deeper water (to 130′) later in the PM and Jim landed 3 and George filled his limit. Pick the right day on Cayuga and you may have some great fishing. Overall I like Keuka better this time of year, but there are an awful lot of fish milling around Taughannock! Tons of baitfish too – and likely plenty of salmon, browns and a few rainbows.
