Pike on the fly by John Winkler on Fri, May 26
Last summer I discovered the fun of fly fishing for largemouths from my float tube on Tully Lake. What a great way to pass the dog days while waiting for the evening hatches. I want to branch out a little more and go for some northerns. I thought that the northerns would be a great substitute between bonefish and salmon fishing. I just got an ADK guideboat (actually its a modified kevalr model which the builder calls "The Vermont Fishing Dory") that I am dying to take to some ponds and lakes. Could anyone suggest any spots? I don't think Tully Lake has any but know there must be some other area lakes that do.
Thanks in advance.

|The northern side of cayuga is known for it's smallmouth and pike. Smallmouth on the fly is right up there with trout. What kind of setup do you use for pike around here? I have seen folks in canada use 10 ft 10 wts with funky leader set ups. I am hoping that my 9' 6, 7 wt will work for now. Cayuga lake is ranked 4th in the country for bass lakes. My favorite summer activety is to walk from Meyers point on the train tracks and fish all the docks. Many people think that the docks are private property, they are not. The residential parcels end at the train track. These people build docks on land that is not their own. If they say they are going call the police on you, tell them to go check the parcel map for cayuga county in the tax office, or if you are GIS dork like myself you carry a map of the parcels in your vest to eduacate them. most know and try to keep folks off "their" dock by lieing.|
