Cayuga Taughannock Report 9/2


Some very good to excellent fishing with Jim today. A half day guided trip resulted in 10+ lakers up to 8lbs, 1 beautiful brown trout probably all of 7 lbs and a nice chunky 3lb. smallmouth! Fish were in 65′ to 90′ of water – most around the 70’s depth range. It’s pretty obvious to me that browns are starting to move into the area. They typically congregate around the creek mouth in late September and October. Some salmon should start showing up soon too. Bass are around in good numbers as well. Vertical jigging is still the ticket. The great fishing in this region just doesn’t quit!
