Long Lake still good for walleyes but this will slow up very soon. Lake Emily is still good for walleyes on the west side. Shore fishing after dark has been best on Emily. Bass and sunfish are good on Minnewaska. Walleyes on Waska are being caught in 22-25 feet of water using live bait. No reports from other area lakes.
The report is same as last week. The best walleye lake this past week has been Long Lake. Bass fishing on Lake Minnewaska has been good. Use spinnerbaits or leeches in shallow water for best results. The rest of information is same as last week. Nice stable weather is going to improve the fishing.
The secret for walleyes on Lake Minnewaska is to fish deep(22-24 feet) of water using live bait and spinners. People are still catching sunfish in the Starbuck marina using waxworms. Bass season opens Saturday and Minnewaska will be good. Bass should be shallow in the bulrushes. Still catching walleyes on Lake Emily but it is extremely weedy. Sunfish and walleyes have been good on Lake Reno. Reno will also be good for bass on Saturday. Hopefully the weather is good and everyone has a good holiday weekend!
Still learning pic process. Sorry. Northern pike was caught by Phil Messner. Weight was 9 lbs. and length was 34 inches. Caught on Pomme de terre.
About the same as the last report. Some walleyes being caught on Long Lake. Lake Emily weeds are terrible already. Very little activity due to miserable weather. We still have spot tail shiners!
Lake Emily was best using live bait with spinners. The lake is already becoming weedy.
Lake Minnewaska was best before sunrise using live bait with spinners in 22 feet of water.
Lake Reno was best using live bait with spinners in 20 feet or more of water.
No other lake reports.
We will be open until 10:00PM Friday. Saturday hours will be 4:00 AM until 8:00 PM. Weather is cooperating and I think the fishing in the area lakes should be great!
We are getting closer and the weather gets better with sunshine and highs near 80! We are set to go with plenty of shiners and big leeches. Live bait will be the answer for walleyes on Lake Minnewaska. I would suggest taking a variety of leeches, minnows, and crawlers. The magic depth for the walleyes is a mystery. I would suggest starting in 12-15 feet of water. We will be open extended hours Friday and Saturday.
