Bait Fishing Report August 1, 2015

Bait Fishing Report August 1, 2015
The bait fishing season is now closed.  Starting August 1st each
year, Crowley changes to artificial lures only, and barbless hooks. 
The limit also changes to 2 fish in possession, and they must be
over 18 inches in length.  The Department of  Fish and Wildlife
does this to protect the new planters, giving them time to grow
before the next opener.


Perch Fishing Report August 12, 2015

Perch Fishing Report August 12, 2015 

The perch are starting to spread out across the lake.  The best
area this past week moved from the North Arm, over to the Chalk
Cliffs area.  This time of year, they can be almost anywhere you
find that 30 to 40 feet of  water. The perch will be suspended,
usually 15 to 20 feet down.  Small crank baits, and small Broken
Back Rapallas trolled slow 2 to 3 colors down is what has been


Fly Fishing Report October 7, 2015

Fly Fishing Report October 7, 2015 

We had 4 or 5 days of cold, windy, and wet weather.  This has
dropped the water temps down to 59 - 60 all over the lake.  The
drop in temperature has slowed down the bug hatches, so the fish
have been focusing on Daphnia lately.  The good news is that we
are getting our summer weather back, it's supposed to be back in
the 80's by the weekend. This should get things back on track. 
The other good bit of news is that the cooler temps have got the
browns moving into the North Arm.  We have been catching more browns
than rainbows and cutts put together.  We have been fishing out in
16 feet of water off of Green Banks Bay.  Our best results have
been on plain Shafts, and SuperFlies hanging about 3 feet off of
the bottom.  This seems to be the best method to use, when the
fish are feeding on the Daphnia.

Trolling Report October 7, 2015

Trolling Report October 7, 2015 
The Browns are showing.  The North end has been the place to be
lately. From Christmas Bay all the way past Leighton and across
to 6 Bays and the North Landing Bay have been holding Browns. 
Lures working have been the Thomas Bouyant spoons, Rapalas in
size 7 and 9 floaters, and the Tasmanians.  Normally I have a
frog pattern on the Tasmanians and Bouy-ants and rainbow or black
and silver for the Rapalas.  The fish are not as oriented to the
bottom as past weeks but are in various depths in the 16-24 foot
water.  Trophy guys still need to think about the harbor area and
deep water towards the dam.  Rapalas in the 11-18 size and Rainbow
or black and silver should be the choice.  Water temp is around 60
degrees and should be dropping with the shorter days.
