Bait Fishing Report June 20, 2018


Bait fishing this week has been on fire!! Fishing in 18-23 feet of water has been the best it’s been all year. Nightcrawlers with garlic and pinched crawlers are still the hot ticket, fished 14-20 inches off the bottom. Hot spots this week were McGee bay, Sandy Point and Alligator point. Also throwing lures like gold kastmasters, frog pattern Thomas bouyants and even super duper’s have gotten there fair share of fish. Don’t be affraid to try different areas and stay away from the crowds, there’s plenty of fish to be had. Good luck and tight lines!

Trolling Report June 20, 2018

Trolling Report-Ryan Kitts & Fred Johnson (KJ Flashers) 

The water remains high and the color of the water is not as clear as weeks before. McGee Bay guys are catching them in 10-30 feet of water. Up in the north arm has produce some fish but they are spread out in the 15’-30’ of water so move around until you find the bite. The best producing trolling lures remain to be the Green or Red Tasmanians at 3mph with the best spoons being Thomas Buoyant in the Frog pattern and Brown Trout, some other lures working good are the frog pattern Super Dupers and Rapalas in black and white and Brown trout patterns. You need to be getting the lure down at least 10’-20’ feet at a minimum. We are still catching outside the harbor, Beaver Cove and the 395 side of McGee Bay. The bite seems to change every day so if you are not getting bites were you are at pick up and move until you find them.


The Perch bite is STILL ON and can be found in 4’-20’ feet of water using a watermelon or pumpkin colored jig and a large white head weight tipped with a white croppy nibble. Make sure you are trolling no more than 1.0 mph. The Derby ends Sunday the 24th so get out and catch the big one and win.

Fly Fishing Report June 23, 2018

Fly Fishing Report June 23, 2018

Fly fishing has finally started to pick up a little bit.   stress the phrase "little bit."   the good news is the lake level is still high(wooooo!).  bad news is, the fish are still spread out.   Many people are fishing the inlet of Mcgee creek.  fishing in the channel being key.   being off the bottom will also help from keeping your fly clean from the weeds.   be patient for the reward will be worth it.  a lot of quality fish are being caught, mostly being in the 18"-20".  Also, crooked and beaver are still fishing good.   a lot of stockers have moved into the bays making it fun for a bit.  the hatchery fish have been acclimating for awhile so dont be suprised on the how hard they fight.  >)

Location: McGee Bay,  Chalk Bluffs, Green Landing(bay between North Landing and Green Banks), Big Hilton

Flies: perch fry imitations, copper tigers, shaft emergers, zebra midge, black tiger, wu-tang caddis;)
