Cayuga out of Taughannock 7/15


I got out on my own today, just to check on laker activity. Fish are well distributed from around Sheldrake (at the very least) to the Kingtown Beach area. 65′ on out held quite a few. There’s plenty of bait around. I landed 4 fish, all in areas we hadn’t worked in weeks (I didn’t hit the ‘tried and true’ places). The lakers were fighting OK, not particularly strongly. I’ve noticed that this happens in the mid-summer. Usually the laker battles pick up again as waters gradually cool, for what it’s worth. The waterfleas were awful – they don’t bother me too much jigging, but it’s clear that they are very thick! Expect good to excellent fishing over the next 6 to 8 weeks on Cayuga.
