Cayuga Lake out of Taughannock Park 3/29


Got out with my buddy Shahab for a day of casting and fly-casting for salmon. Fishing was slow but steady today. I had all the early action including 3 solid salmon running to 23″ – two on jigs and one on a fly. I then picked up a nice laker and a 20″ clipped rainbow all on jigs. The rainbow was chrome and absolutely gorgeous. Shahab picked up a nice laker and salmon to finish out the day.

In the goby-era fish have become quite selective in their feeding zones and habits, especially while the water is still very cold. We had 37 to 38 degree water today in most areas. The south end of the lake is starting to show some murky water approaching 40 degrees. Fishing remains challenging yet productive on this lake. It was the opposite “bite” from what I experienced with Todd on Sunday. Stay tuned!
