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 September 2, 2015

Fly Fishing Report September 2, 2015 
The best fishing is still up in the North Arm, I checked out a few
other places yesterday, but did not find much beyond stocker sized
fish.  Up north, you can fish from the edges of the weeds in 13 to
14 feet of water, all the way out to about 18 feet.  The big Cutthroats
and Rainbows are still up there.  There are now a lot more of the
stockers showing up each day, so you will have to sort through the
small guys to get a good one.  We have been in the same old pattern
each day, Albino Barons and Copper Tigers first thing in the morning,
fished about 4 inches from the bottom.  Once the bugs start hatching
around 8:30 or 9:00, switch that bottom fly over to a small Shaft,
and raise it up to 8 to 10 inches from the bottom.

Trolling Report August 28, 2015

Trolling Report August 28, 2015 
Well, it is not wide open but the trolling is really good for the folks
with some patience. Areas to try are out in McGee Bay in the 18-24 foot
water, Big Hilton along the Pelican hook, and when you can up off Green
Banks although there are usually so many boats and float tubers you cannot
get in where the most fish are. For the last several days big fish have
been the norm with 20-24 inch Cutts hammering the trolled lures. Important
to keep the lures close to the bottom. I have heard of the Thomas Bouyant
guys fishing shallow in the North End but that has not worked for me. All
my good fish recently have come on Tasmanians fished close to the bottom
in the 18-24 foot water. The water will start to cool with the longer nights
and the fishing will continue to improve. Best time of the year is ahead of
us.  Best Tasmanian has been the Black Thunder.
