Cayuga Lake Smelt ?

My father use to take me smelt fishing in Cayuga Lake. I haven't been in years and was hoping to take him. I no longer know anyone who goes and have the sense the run is greatly diminished.

Does anyone know if there is an active run in the lake ? Any smelt left in the lake should be spawning now, or soon.

Some years back I did a lot of smelting on Cayuga Lake. Paynes creek by Aurora was one hot spot, Milligan station the generating plant south of there was another.It is my understanding that the zebra mussels led to the decline in numbers, according to a friend that still tries. When I used to go getting the limit in a short period of time was easy.
