Bait Fishing Report August 1, 2016

Bait Fishing Report August 1, 2016

The bait fishing season on Crowley is now closed till next year.  You can
now fish with 1 rod only, and barbless artificial lures.  The limit also
changes to 2 fish in possession, and they must be 18 inches or bigger.



Perch Fishing Report August 4, 2016

Perch Fishing Report August 4, 2016

The perch are now moving off the weed edges, and suspending out over deeper
water.  As the season progresses, they will move out to deeper & deeper water.  
Look for them out in 25 to 35 feet of water, suspended 15 to 20 feet down.  
Remember, no bait, or scented grubs are allowed this time of year.  The best
method is to slow troll small Rapalas, or small crank baits through the schools
of perch.  The best area has been from Sandy Point, to Alligator point, and
over to 6-bays.


Fly Fishing Report August 25, 2016

Fly Fishing Report August 25, 2016

The fly fishing slowed down a bit this week.   The fish have spread out quite a
bit, probably due to the pressure that hits them each weekend.  The best area is
still up in the North Arm.  You can find the fish from the edges of the weed beds
in 12 feet, all the way out to 17 or 18 feet.  The top flies for me have been
either a small Albino, or a small Copper Tiger first thing in the morning. I have
been switching to gray early, usually around 8:00 to 8:30.  Remember to keep some
kind of perch pattern out there if you are near the weeds.  Most of the rest of
the lake is affected by an algae bloom.  You can still get some nice fish early
in McGee, close to the weeds before the wind pushes the algae in on you.  A nice
place to hide, if you dont want to deal with big crowds.

Trolling Report August 18, 2016

Trolling Report August 18, 2016

Trout trolling is still on the slow side, but outside the midgers in North Landing
and still around the bathroom area in McGee the fishing can be productive .focus on
the 16-22 foot depths and put the lures as close to the bottom as you can. Best lures
have been the Tasmanians in green frog patterns and the brown trout Rapalas in size
9 floating models. Another option is trolling for the perch. You need to slow the boat
to around 1.5 mph, use small broken back Rapalas and Rebels , and put the lures down
around 15 feet out in the deeper water. Best area has been up around Christmas Bay
past Alligator and towards Sandy Point but dont think you cant explore around McGee
also. The fish are suspended and are better table fare than the trout. Trout will pick
up again as fall approaches.    Don Meier  CPR Guideservice  760 784 1524
