July 28th Main Lake Water Temp. 83 Degrees
The Lake elevation is 3779.93 and the storage is 157,000 acre feet. The Main Lake is clear.
At least for right now it appears that the dog days of Summer are here. The fishing pressure is light and the bite has slowed down.
Walleye-Fair-We had a few reports of Walleye caught this weekend trolling. Medium and deep divers both turned up a few. The area above Horseshoe Bend seemed to be the most productive.
White Bass- Fair-It looks like they are starting to school deeper. I am not seeing much surface activity but we did have a few reports of white Crankbaits working when trolled. Try the area from Bull Canyon to Watson Island.
Bass-Fair-Here's where it gets difficult. With the largest tournament held in NM coming up on Saturday information is hard to come by. I will say that I haved fished 3 day in the last 10 and I did catch a few keepers. Most of them came on plastic fished slow. With rain in the forecast for the next 3 days things could change fast, so stay tuned the results next Tuesday!
The Smith RV and Marine Open is coming up on August 1st. Here's your chance to fish for a 1st place prize of $10,000.00! Entry fee is $250.00 per team that includes Big Bass which pays $1000.00.
Catfish-Fair-Punch Bait and Chicken Liver fished in 2 to 4 feet of water has been working best. We have heard the most about the upper Canadian being the best choice.
With the start of school and the firing up of the Friday Night Lights both approaching, the traffic on the Lake will slow down. With the temperature hitting close to 100 everyday it is hard to realize that the Fall fishing for Whites and Walleye is just around the corner. We are hard at work getting Blades and Slabs ready. Also, we have expanded our soft plastic equipment and are turning out some new styles and there will be a lot of new color options available.
Until next week,
TIGHT LINES AND GOOD FISHING!
