Cayuga out of Dean’s 4/6


Lake trout fishing remains quite interesting on Cayuga Lake. Tremendous numbers of lake trout are scattered across the north end flats. Most of the “shallow fish” – i.e. the fish in 90′ to 115′ of water are inactive. Just lying dormant. Go out into the real depths – over 150′ and the fish are active as heck! Had a fun day searching the northern portions of Cayuga fishing up to 200′ of water with my special jigs. Took a limit home. The fish are all full of baitfish – alewives. Best fishing was around 160′. Surface temps are around 39/40. Fish are all plump and healthy looking! There’s no better lake trout fishery around in the Finger Lakes than Cayuga Lake….
