Sich's Guide Service – Cayuga Lake

Sich’s Guide Service runs fishing charters on Cayuga Lake in a 2021 starcraft fish master 196. One of the most stable and spacious platform in aluminum boats and the latest in technology gives us the edge while fishing in comfort. We can charter a maximinum of 4 customers plus the captain comfortably. We are one of fhe few boats on cayuga lake that has the comfortability to have the choice to either jig or troll with up to 4 customers. We target multispeies and not just lake trout, large catches of rainbow trout with some atlantic salmon and brown trout are common especially mid may-august. Our spot lock minn kota allows us to anchor over a coordinate to jig or maintain a course to make a troll. Fishing on cayuga lake is our specialty and we charter full time and year round on several amazing NY fisheries. It is my job day in, day out to put you on fish, come out and fish with us for a relaxing day on cayuga lake.

Trips are 6-hour trips, mainly fishing for lake trout, rainbow trout, brown trout, and atlantic salmon. Deciding what method will work best that day and the preference of the crew can often dictate our catch. Make sure the captian knows what it is you want to catch!

Everything is included in your charter, just show up with the proper clothing for the day along with some drinks and snacks in a small bag or cooler. You also need a valid NYS fishing license.
You can keep anything you catch, as long as it’s legal to do so.
