Cayuga out of Dean’s 5/7


Lake trout fishing remains good to very good on Cayuga Lake. We had steady action today on nice lake trout ranging from 24″ to 30″. The biggest factor was the lack of wind. We weren’t able to cover much water. Fish were hitting well and are fighting great. These fish can break rods – no question about it!

Pickerel fishing was tremendous in the north end of the lake! Just superb fishing with hits coming on nearly every cast. 1/4 oz. tube jigs in chartreuse did the trick. Some nice perch were hitting as well. We fished 4 to 6′ of water.

We kept a mess of pickerel – and I do recommend keeping these fish if you’re into a meal. I’d much rather release the pike and eat pickerel. The pickerel have been eating perch and alewives.

Bass, sunfish and perch are prowling the shallows. Should be a great season!
