Cayuta Lake Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Its shoreline only about half developed, this 518-acre lake averages 10 feet deep and has a maximum depth of 26 feet. It is very weedy, especially on its north and south ends.
This natural lake’s alewife population has attracted the attention of Cornell University, which is experimenting with controlling their numbers by stocking walleyes. Apparently it’s working, because in 2002 the state lent a hand by releasing 52,500 4-inchers. Well fed, the walleyes aren’t easy to catch, but patient anglers are paid off with large fish, often exceeding 7 pounds. They like crankbaits and spinnerbaits."
