Slow. All area lakes slow. On Waska some sunnies are being caught in 10-12 feet of water on school house bar using small leeches. A few walleyes are being caught in 8-10 feet of water using crankbaits. Start on school house bar and work your way to Bottle Bay. Inconsistent, sorry.
Much the same as last week. Walleyes being caught on Reno, Waska, and Emily. Live bait is best but no other consistent pattern. Sunnies and a few crappies are being caught on Waska using small jigs and small leeches or minnows. No reports on bass or northerns.
We are finally going to have some nice weather. Everybody get out and enjoy the 4th. Fishing report is identical to last week. Have fun!
Walleye fishing has no consistent pattern on Waska. Live bait seems to be the best bet, but no certain depth or area. East side of Reno still fairly good for walleyes using live bait. Emily and Long have shut down for eyes. Bass and sunfish have been really active on Waska in 12 feet of water. That is the depth to be in all over the lake. Northerns just starting to hit trolling cranks in 6-8 feet of water.
A solid week of rain, storms,and wind have left a lot of frustrated fishermen. Still have reports of walleye being taken on Reno and Waska. Emily and Long have slowed up. Bass fishing has been great on Waska and Reno. Sunfish have been good on Waska and crappies are good on Reno. Hopefully our weather improves soon!
Unbelievable! What a stretch of good weather and best fishing in years! Check last two reports as everything is the same. Remember Minnewaska Lake Association banquet is July 12.
What an excellent past month for fishing! Long Lake has slowed down. Emily is still good for walleyes and crappies using shallow cranks or live bait. Walleyes, bass, sunnies, and crappies are being taken on Minnewaska, Reno, and Mary. Cranks and live bait have been good on these lakes. This will be the best fishing of the year, so get out and enjoy. Minnewaska Lake Association banquet is July 12 at the Minnewaska House. I have tickets and more info if needed.
Weather has been nice, water has warmed up, and fishing has been tremendous. Read last week's report and add these comments. Bass have been crazy on Waska. Look shallow with plastic worms or leeches. Walleye activity has been good on Reno and Mary. All other reports remain the same which means excellent!
Walleyes have been good on Long lake using shiners or fatheads. Emile is kicking out some nice walleyes and crappies. Use minnows or shallow crankbaits on Emily. Starbuck marina and fish hatchery bay for crappies and sunnies on Waska. Walleyes are starting on Waska because water is warming up. No walleyes on Reno or Mary due to the cold water.
We now have spot tail shiners and jumbo leeches. Spot tails will be number one choice for walleyes this weekend. Jumbo leeches will work for both walleyes and bass.
