For walleye fishermen, patience is the key word. A few walleye are being caught late at night using crankbaits. Reports are slow all over the area.
Sunfish are still being caught, mostly on Glenwood side of lake.
Minnewaska Lake Association had fall meeting this past Wednesday. We agreed to buy $25,000 worth of walleye fingerlings this fall for Waska. We have stocked over 700,000 walleyes, and with your monetary support we will continue this program. MLA banquet is set for July 10,2010 at the Minnewaska House.
This may sound more like a weather report than a fishing report. It has been too hot for a consistent fall walleye bite.Water temp has gone from 65 to 75 degrees. Not good as 60 degrees is magic temp for good walleye fishing.Try after dark with crankbaits.During the day, go deep with live bait.
Sunnies have been moving around, but still can be found in 12-15 ft.Use small jigs and waxworms for best results.
No reports on bass or northerns.
Also no reports on area lakes.
Hopefully a better report next time.
Walleyes are becoming more active in deeper water. Use jigs and minnows to find these fish. Still not a consistent pattern, but as water cools down we will see more fish.
Sunfish are still being caught in 12-15 ft of water. Use waxworms or small leeches and small sunnie jigs.
Red Rock, Reno, and Long Lake are worth checking for walleyes.
First report so bear with me. I will update as much as possible. Sunfish still going great. Look in 12-15 ft. with worms. Walleyes starting to bite on jigs and minnows.
Check back soon for area fishing reports and pictures.
