Bait Fishing Report September 8, 2017

Bait Fishing Report  September 8, 2017


As of August 1, we are in our no bait season.   No bait or scent, artificial lures, barbless(pinched down with forceps), only keep 2 fish minumum 18" and bigger.


Renting a boat, to get out in the middle of the lake, will help chances of catching.  shore fishing is really hard right now because of the lake level and dense weed line.  best depth is 20'-30'.   use really bright lures or any kind fry(minnow) patterns.  pinch down your barbs with forceps to make them barbless.  

location: Mcgee Bay, Crooked Bay!, Hilton Bay


Trolling Report October 12, 2017

 Trolling Report Ocotber 12, 2017-Don Meier C.P.R. Guide Service (760)784-1524


There are 2 areas to try. The North End outside the weedbeds out from Green Banks is now holding some quality fish and outside McGee is still holding fish also. Up north the fish are suspended and most depths will produce in the 18-22 foot water. In McGee outside the weeds in the 17-20 foot water the fish seem to be more bottom oriented. Still best trolling lures have been the green Tasmanians. Now is also the time to try outside the harbor and Crooked Creek with Rapalas. Good weather but cold mornings and uncrowded fishing.

Fly Fishing Report October 9, 2017

Fly Fishing Report October 9, 2017

   Fly Fishing has really spread out. many people are fishing the north arm and some are still fishing McGee.  Everyday the bite is different due to the weather.  The cold days are pretty slow, no hatch, with the warm days being really good.    lot of fish are still out deep, 20+ft, but there are some fish in 7ft-15ft.  lot of adolescent Browns(16"-18") are being caught along with the Rainbows as they are in prespawn mode.  the strip bite should start picking up as the fish get more aggressive.  This is the time to fly fish the lake......winter will be here soon! :)

Depth: 5-25ft

Location: Mcgee Bay, Crooked Bay, Little Hilton Bay, North Arm(Barts bluff, West flat, in the inlet channel)
