Fishing News, Tips and Techniques

Fishing Report – Lake Camanche – 7/20/11


Trout are still being caught in the main lake. Warmer weather still has the trout going down to about 40-45 feet or so. Hat Island and along the buoy line at the dam are still hot spots for trollers. Powerbait in rainbow and chartreuse colors as well as night crawlers are still the favorites along with rapala lures and needlefish lures.


At the South Shore pond, 2 anglers caught a few bass with a hula popper. The biggest was a 5lb and reported catching a big spotted bass the previous day with the same bait.


Michael Butler (a CRC employee) and son caught numerous bluegill & even lost a huge catfish next to the boat which broke his 5lb test line and even caught a glimpse of the fish. Since the lake level rose so quickly, a lot of feed was created for channel catfish and many good reports have been coming in to the North Shore store. Most fish were caught with clams, crawlers, chicken liver, and shad. Find a dropoff or timber area to target some shallow fighters. You can also throw some 3 inch grubs for spotted bass, crappie and bluegill.
