Cayuga Lake Fishing

If you enjoy fishing in well-stocked lakes, you’ll love Cayuga Lake. Each year, this lake is stocked with approximately 60,000 trout, 25,000 brown trout and 40,000 Atlantic Salmon. And if that wasn’t enough, the lake’s tributaries are also stocked with 50,000 beautiful rainbow trout. If you head over in April or May, try trolling for Atlantic salmon, rainbow trout, brown trout, and Northern pike. You can also find good tributary fishing in April in the Cayuga Inlet, Salmon Creek, and Fall Creek. Head to the deeper water in the summer to catch lake trout. In the fall, the tributaries are great places to find Atlantic salmon. And in the winter, try your hand at ice fishing in the north end for panfish and pickerel. Cayuga Lake offers some excellent bass fishing as well. In fact, the bass fishing in the Northern end is so good, that it has become the location for several professional bass tournaments.
