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 15, 2015

Fly Fishing Report October 715, 2015 

The fly fishing was going pretty well, until the Daphnia moved back into
the North Arm.  We are still getting a few nice fish, but it is nowhere
as good as it was last week.  We have been fishing in 16 feet of water,
off of Green Banks Bay.  The best results have been using a plain large
Shaft on top, with a small Albino on the bottom.  We have been placing
that bottom fly about 6 inches from the bottom in the morning.  Around
9:30 or 10:00, switch the bottom fly to another Shaft, and get it up to
12 to 18 inches from the bottom.  We have also had a few fish using a
small Punk Perch as the top fly.  As the water temperatures continue to
drop, the Browns will start moving into Big Hilton, Whiskey Bay, and
Crooked Creek.  They seem to favor small Black Leeches, Purple Leeches,
and Wine Leeches over some of the standard midges.  Fish them the same
way under an indicator, but give them a lot more action by twitching
them every 30 seconds.

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.
