Skaneateles Lake 4/27 AM


Did a 1/2 day trip with Sue, who fished with me last year. Conditions were cool, cloudy and calm this AM then the sun finally broke through and we wound up with a nice day. I was hoping she could do some casting a possibly hook some trout, perch or bass but with the calm conditions lake trout jigging was probably the best bet. She had 4 or 5 grabs and managed to land one laker around 18″. These aren’t the full-bodied (“full figured”) Cayuga trout – they’re somewhat scrawny cigar shaped fish, but beautiful nonetheless. Water temps were around 43 on top.

My buddy Mike was out here last weekend and managed to get a decent rainbow trout on the fly and some good eating perch.
