Cayuga Hoping to target rainbows this weekend

Recommended Posts

Hoping to target rainbows this weekend

I'm hoping to head to Cayuga on saturday and wanted to target rainbows and salmon. I've been pretty consistently catching just lake trout. I can't seem to catch a rainbow, brown, or salmon. 


I've used spoons, and flasher flies. But no luck other than lake trout. I know speeds are a little higher for rainbows and salmon than lake trout. I've been setting 2 riggers, one at 70 and one at 40 both with cheaters on. 


I'm still fairly new to this and trying to sort everything out. Any ideas are much appreciated.

I fished long point south from 4 to dark+. 50 down is 50°water. I ran 10lb fluro, 80 ft back small spoons and Rapala sticks. 5 landlocks. 15 in to 21. Many small ones 9" to 15". No browns.
2 Lakers way up in 60 ft. Keepers but I let everything go. If I marked bait, I caught fish. Most were out in 150 200 ft. Fleas were zip. A few but going away. I ran 1.6 to 2.2 speed. I think if I went south farther I would have seen more. Ran out of day light.

    • Weekend forecast may be a blessing

      With rain and high winds in the forecast combined with the high water and closed launches on the lake and River the spawning bass may get a break from angling pressure. With the early opener spawning bass should have been vulnerable this year. High water and less pressure due to weather conditions may lead to a good spawn this year as fish will be able to move into shallow spawning areas. Less hope conditions lead to favorable spawning even with the early opener.     Sent from my iPhone using
