Bass fishing Cayuga Lake

Recommended Posts

Was wondering if anyone could give some input about bass fishing in Cayuga, near Ithaca? I will be heading out of Treman Marine Park. This is the first time on Cayuga and any input will be helpful.

Thanks all.

Not too sure about bass fishing in the S. end, but could give you some pointers about the N.end for sure. Maybe somebody can chime in if you are determined to go out of Treman.

Just north of Union Springs are what is called the twin buoys. This marks the channel that was dredged until the sixties for the salt barges. The flats around them are app 12' with great weed beds. Also at the channel edges it raise 4 or 5 feet creating some structure. The channel goes to the railroad structure in the village of Cayuga. This should give you a start, keep in mind this part of the lake is weedy so it holds plenty of bass, tons of pickeral, and some northerns.

Launch at Cayuga State Park (west side), work the developing weed beds up towards the railroad trestles rotating thru spinner baits, different crank baits, and super flukes and Texas/Carolina rigs. You want to find weed beds w/ open pockets. Every part of this end of Cayuga gets worked over pretty hard during the tournaments and weekends, so you need to keep working & moving. Not sure how familiar you are w/ flipping & pitching and techniques like jigging and drop shotting but there is cover and stucture all over up there and down past Frontenac Island (East side) and on over towards Aurora, that lend themselves to these presentations.
