Cayuga Beautiful Fall Morning

Recommended Posts

A real treat to be out on the water this morning as light winds, moderate temps, and foliage starting to show some brilliant colors.  The only negative for the morning was the lack of a spectacular sunrise but we have had a bunch of great ones recently.....super moon rises this week too. 

Left Deans before sunup and ran South past Sheldrake to get set up.  Hadn't set the second rigger when the first fired with a stout Laker.   Had another quick strike soon after setting the dipsey pulling a flasher and fly.  Another solid laker was on the line.   Things went quiet for a stretch, then kept a steady pick of fish, 2 on dypsey for each 1 on the rigger.   All lake trout plus 1 rainbow that took a fly and a nice dinner for 2 sized landlock that hammered a spoon off the rigger.   Big fish of the morning was this Laker that tipped the scale at 9 lbs. 

Just a great morning to relax and enjoy the lake with all it has to offer.

Went out few hours Tuesday afternoon. Marked boat loads of fish all over the water column. Tried everything I had, no takers. 

Got after it again yesterday.  Very frosty morning to start but the fishing warmed me up quickly.  Dipseys carrying Flasher/fly rigs again dominated the action with several heavily egg laden lake trout females topping 30 inches.   Downriggers were less active, though a good rainbow took a sliding cheater.  Just a beautiful morning out there and glad to get out as the South wind looks to be making a bigger chop on the water this morning.
