Cayuga/Taughannock 3/8


Got out on Cayuga to check on northerns and lakers. The pike I found were still in winter patterns and not very aggressive – though it was midday and somewhat bright out. H2O on the lake is 37. Water level is very low – good for shoreline casters.

I spent around 1+1/2 hours lake trout fishing. Fishing was surprisingly good! I was impressed with the aggressiveness of these winter lakers. I landed 5 nice fish in little over an hour. They ran from 23″ to over 27″. I kept 3 and they all had alewives in their stomachs. So they are starting to feed and there’s some bait around. Most fish were around 100′ to 110′. I worked the King Ferry/Millican area.
