Cayuga Lake/Taughannock Shorefishing 3/17


I did some casting around Taughannock Point today for an hour and a half and was very pleased with what I found. Shades of the late 1990s and early 2000s out on Cayuga! I landed one nice 20″ salmon just under 3lbs and lost one. I missed two other hits. I had the lake to myself for the most part. It was a bit cold for fly-fishing so I cast some home made jigs on my new Browning Midas medium action spinning rod. What a great casting set-up. I was so impressed with my MH action rod last week, I bought a Med. plus another MH yesterday. They are casting machines! Lake level was low. Salmon love the sun and warm water- I even saw one poking up into the marina today.
