Bait Fishing Report Aug 1, 2014

Bait Fishing Report Aug-1, 2014

Starting Friday August-1, the Dept of Fish and Wildlife changes the regulations
on Crowley Lake to artificial lures / Barbless hooks only.   No bait or scents
are allowed through the end of the season.  Also, you are limited to a single
rod, even if you had bought the 2nd rod stamp. The limit on trout also changes
to 2 fish in possession which must be 18 inches in length or greater.



Perch Fishing Report Aug 27, 2014

Perch Fishing Report August 27, 2014

The lead core trollers are still picking up a few perch, but it
has slowed down for them a bit.  You can still get some by pulling
small broken back Rapallas down 2 to 3 colors.  The guys are mostly
fishing the deeper waters of McGee Bay, and over by Chalk Cliffs.



Fly Fishing Report October 15, 2014

Fly Fishing Report October 15, 2014

 We had a fall storm roll through here Tuesday and Wednesday. 30 to 40 mile per hour
winds out of the south kept most people off of the lake.  The forecast is looking
good once this storm passes.  We should be back into the low 70's by Friday.  Before
the storm blew in, the fishing was pretty good, and the water has really cleared up.
There are still multiple places holding fish, so you have lots of options.  Sandy
Point has been very good.  Just anchor up and fish the drop offs that go from about
7 feet, down to about 18 feet.  In the fall, the fish will move up and down these
drops, looking for food.  We have had our best results hanging our flies about 12 to
13 feet down in 13 to 14 feet of water.  Use Super Fly Emergers and Shaft Emergers as
your top fly, with Albinos and Copper Tigers on the bottom.  Around 9:00, replace the
bottom flies with a either of the small emergers.  A few other places to go would be
off of Alligator Point in 14 to 15 feet of water.  Over at 6 bays, you will want to
fish at the base of the drop off in about 13 feet of water.  Big Hilton is still
holding a few fish.  Fish it just like Sandy Point in about 13 feet of water.  Crooked
Creek has lots of fish, but mostly the small stockers, with a few nice browns mixed in.

Trolling Report October 16, 2014

Trolling Report October 16, 2014

I have been on the water for the last 6 days and can report the fishing is great. Mostly
for me the Cutthroats have been the mainstay with several big rainbows and only a couple
very nice browns. Each day we have had double digits of keeper fish over 18”. I have had
better luck in the shallow water (9-13 feet) over in Christmas Bay and along Leighton.
Most noticeable difference has been the fish want the minnow type lures rather than the
Tasmanians. So I have been giving them a steady diet of black and silver size 9-11 Rapalas
and have been very successful. Yes, I do modify these lures rather than right out of the
box. A light pink stripe and black dots from a paint pen seems to do the job. There are a
lot of fish behind Sandy Point in the 25 foot water but they do not always bite, but that
is where the best brown of the week came from on a Tasmanian.  Over on the 6 bays side there
are fish outside the midgers also but not the regular onslaught of browns like normal for
this time of the year. Trophy guys I would be outside the harbor fishing the drop-offs with
Rapalas all the way from the river channel over to Pelican Point and around the Hiltons it
is that time of the year. Do not offer them a snack but rather size 11,13 and 18 Rapalas.
Best time in the Sierras with good weather and quality fish every day.
