"I went fishing last Saturday, and couldn't get anything but a bluegill to bite. It was pretty warm out so I am guessing the fish were pretty deep, and I tried everything still no results. The topwater action was good, but they just wouldn't hit anything. I can usually get something on a spinnerbait pretty early, not this time"

Lake McClure Trout Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- trout fishing is great in the coves and around the houseboats. Fish at night with some lights and drop your worm/power bait to about 35-60 feet. if you want to catch the bigger fish, pout a little larger piece of bait on and drop it into colder waters.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
