  1. The launch and parking lot at Treman are clear of snow and ice. The water level today was 380.5. Prop kicked up some mud but no issues launching. We launched at 9:30 and pulled out at 2:15. We never moved a rod until noon. We initially trolled north along the east shore in 60fow and less looking for browns and LL. Planer boards with Rapallas and a lead core down the chute. Lots of sticks and leaves in the water kept us busy clearing lines. Crossed over to the west shore and continued with the north troll in 60fow and less. No leaves and no sticks,,, also no bites. Right around noon we decided to catch a few lakers before we had to pull out. Moved out into 100fow with riggers at 70’ and 90’. In the next 2 hours we boated 4 lakers (all nice size) and lost 4 others. Never saw a lot of fish on the screen except when we crossed from east to west side. Fish were 150’ down or more in 250+fow. Water temp stayed at 38.7deg. Calm wind and an occasional light breeze, mostly sunny, and was 58deg air temp when we pulled out. Hard to be disappointed just because we could not find the browns and LL. Saw one other boat.

    Cayuga Cayuga

    I live 2 hours south of Ithaca. We got less than 1” of snow over the last couple days. Based solely on school closings it looks like Ithaca area got substantial snow. It looks like Thursday 3/16 will be a great day on Cayuga. Can anyone tell me if the launch at Treman is usable or is there deep snow in the parking lot? thanks
  3. My guess is 1 ft of water off the end of dock. . Hopefully I save someone the trip.
  4. In case anyone is interested: Treman State Park launch is usable. I launched out of Treman State Park in my Fishmaster 196 today. Lake water level was 380.11. Outboard kicked up some mud but we had no problems. Not a hint of ice. We had hoped to hit some LL and browns but that did not happen. Picked up a dozen lakers though. Saw one other boat. Water temp hovered around 39.5. Great day to be on the water.
  5. Hi, I'd love to get any help here. I just moved to the lake South-East end this November. I have never fish the lake at this time of the year. I'm fishing from the shore and would like to know what has been successful in catching trout/salmon in this location and time of the year. Anyone ? Any hints? Thank you as always to anyone helping out AG
  6. I live near Trumansburg. I desperately need to catch smallmouth bass! Any suggestions where to go this time of year? I'll be fishing out of a kayak. Thanks, Rick

  8. What’s going on with boaters out on the lake? Out on Cayuga today probably 5 other boats out here an 2 of them run wide open within 25-30’ of us while we’re trolling. Not just that but it seems like people are losing consideration for others. Maybe because I’m older or is it just me?

  10. I don't know if anyone has tried this, but last Sunday during my FLTA tournament. My tx-44 planers were struggling to stay afloat pulling 400 copper and 11 core. I removed both weights, burrowed a hole in the center and re-installed only one weight in the bottom center. WOW, what a change. They floated and pulled 30% better.

  12. Went south of deans and got a few lakers, few rainbows. Fleas were bad, ran downriggers at 30-60 and hooked 3 bows, fleas kept us from reeling them in. Hand lined one in, the biggest, others were small and fell off once lines jammed up b/c fleas. Not much of a thermocline…. 60deg F top, 57-58degF 50-70 feet down. Got a decent laker on church 44 planer 10 color lead line, first time running them, dragged him for a while I’d guess. If anyone can share insight into these in line planer boards I’d greatly appreciate it, seems like line clip is backwards to me, but…. Lots of sun, landed fish, wasn’t at work!
  13. Just wondering where the best area/launch on cayuga is with kayak access to lakers. I want to get out this weekend and was thinking of hitting Canadice since it is more friendly to kayaks, but I feel as though I have better odds of solid action on cayuga. I have a very stable 12’ sit on top kayak and electronics and am familiar with how to find/jig fish I just would like to not have to paddle incredibly far from a launch. Right now the wind forecast looks promising for a smooth lake. I’ll ditch the plan of it looks like it’s going to kick up. Honestly a good morning to me will be one for the cooler and a couple more to toss back and I’ll call it a day. If anybody has any info they’re willing to give up I appreciate it very much. Thanks!

  15. 3 weeks ago the launch at Treman was locked in ice. Anyone been down by Treman launch recently? thanks
  16. Haven't been on the water in a long while so when the winds were calm this morning it was time to get out there. No lines no waiting at Dean's so launched about 9 went straight out 50 yards and started trolling. Fish were near or on bottom out to 120 fow then suspended between 80 and 120 towards the middle of the lake. Probably all lake trout or at least that was all that was hungry. First fish of the day was the largest at 29 inches, the rest ranged from 16 to 24. Equal numbers hit spoons and flies. Steady pick right along then back at the dock by 1. Great December day to be on the water. Not seeing reports here lately, anyone working the South end finding some Salmon or are they still in the creeks? I'll be waiting for the lake to drop a little more before launching down at Taughannock.
  17. Quick report on Cayuga Saturday. Fished out of Myers point. Surface temp was 62-67 degrees depending where you were. Temp break at the ball was 75 feet plus to find 50 degree water. Top to bottom it was 65 degree water until you hit 75 feet…Started the day with my normal mix of 3 1/2” spoons and did nothing on them. Picked up 2 Lakers on white flasher fly combo on the dipsy. Decided to retool my presentation and pushed the spoon sets back 75 feet amd downsized to scorpion sized trout spoons, slowed down the boat speed and it was game on for Lakers. 10 colors of lead core picked at fish as well. Boated a dozen or so and had a few more come unbuttoned. When we found bait and Lakers we got hits…rogue fish not so much. Bites were 100-120 feet down for us just above the bottom. One bonus bow hit us on a turn. Spectacular weather with minimal traffic. Cheers!

  20. Did a morning jigging trip out of Dean's yesterday with my dad and brother. Launched at 5:30am, and had the first laker in the boat by 5:45am. Thought it was going to be good bite, but it turned out to be a bit slow with some decent wind at times which made it tough to stay where we wanted to. We did manage 5 lakers and two bows in the 4 hours that we were there. Best fish of the day was my 32" laker, that was a fun fight!
  21. I saw a report last week from a charter that an algae bloom was starting to happen on Cayuga. Just wondering if anyone has a recent report out of Dean's Cove that could say whether the algae bloom is still happening, or how good/bad it is? Thanks!! Sean
  22. A gray and sometimes grumpy morning but still great fishing on Cayuga. Started heading South to let the Northeast wind help not hinder. Steady lake trout bite all over the column in 80-200 fow. Early on a really nice rainbow hammered the 7 color and kept driving deep all the way until 20 feet behind the boat when it changed gears and rocketed several feet out of the water, gave a nice profile view and tossed the spoon aside. Sometimes the best moments don't always end with a fish in the boat! Skies darkened and wind increased near Sheldrake so trolled across and started North on the East side with hopes of avoiding the harshest wind. That failed as rain cells came through with a Northwesterly blow. The bite slowed for a bit and lost several bows mid-battle as aerials with the waves made it easier for them to create slack. Fleas also a problem as multiple jam ups that needed to be cleared in the middle of fighting with fish. As the wind and rain started to settle began trolling back across and a nice Rainbow targeted the slide diver. Made for a nice finish to an occasionally wild but overall relaxing trip.
  23. Wednesday morning after Tuesday's gully washer. Surface temp 64. Fished north and south of Long point staying in 40 to 60 fow. Inlines, directional divers and riggers. Bait was plentiful. Brought 12 fish to net. Six silvers and six Lakers. 12lb laker came 15 feet down on a slide diver pulling a boy girl scorpion and 6 and a half lb salmon came off the rigger at 20 down with bloody nose scorpion.
  24. Went out with a few friends today started at 9:00 shot across to east side in 100-150 fow slow pick there managed 3 lakers, come back across to west side at 200 fow had a double on coppers rods kept firing in that area finished 8-11 all lakers, riggers, dipsys, coppers all took fish 1 on gambler rig rest on spoons. Of at 2:30 fun day finally fishing again!
