Cayuga out of Taughannock 9/24


Did a 1/2 day with Pat and Glen from the Trumansburg area. Fishing tends to be a bit spotty in late Sept. on Cayuga for lakers – good one day, slow the next. Today was pretty decent, with the guys each hooking 3 fish and landing 2 of them for a total of 4 solid lakers taken. Fish had alewives in their stomachs, so they are still feeding. There’s still plenty of bait around and some perch were in the marina. Trollers are picking up a few nice salmon. Water temps were 65. Expect good fishing for perch, bass and some pike. Shore fishers are getting some lakers (at least they were early today.) Foliage is starting to color up. The areas around the park are loaded with lakers. Propagation netting is scheduled to begin on 10/6, so if you’re going to fish lakers do it over the next 11 or 12 days. Don’t forget that fishing licenses expire on 9/30!
