BIG PROBLEM WITH THE FISH: The Wife and I are trying to fish a new lake every weekend. Since it was 106 in the Valley we chose a higher elevation lake for cooler temps to fish. Lake was very low and warm we were told by the locals. The locals were not catching anything but we landed 5 Rainbows and 1 Brown in less than hour after fishing in 60\' deep with worms. (Trout didn\'t like spinners or crank) 3 of the 5 (10-13\") Rainbows had lots of parasites all over them. They had no fight and just pulled through the water like dead sticks. They were very ugly and sad to see these maggots looking bumps all over their bodies as you real them in. The others looked fine, and the Brown was a beautiful fat 18\" and fun to catch. I wonder if the lake was planted with diseased fish or what? We like to eat the smaller trout and throw back the big ones. But we didn’t like what we were seeing and stopped fishing and left. Very pretty area, with the snow covered peeks in the back ground year round, I’d stay clear this Summer of 2013 if your fish eaters. If you release everything, then they are there to catch.

I have fished this lake almost weekly for the past 3 months and have had very good luck catching rainbow trout. From what I understand the lake is stocked every 2 weeks and provides for good fishing from early morning until late afternoon. Most of the fish that I have caught were in deeper waters using power bait and at times a spinning bait. This is a 5 mph lake so you don't have to compete with waverunners or jet ski's racing around ruining your spot.

Stumpy Meadows Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is in full spawn now the water temperature has climbed up to 65 degrees. The large female bass will be on the beds and holding tight. Spawning bass won't be feeding aggressively at this water temperature but they will be catchable. In addition, all bass don't spawn at the exact same time or water temperature. If you aren't a site fisherman, you should be able to find some larger females and male largemouth on the standard spring patterns. Female bass will really start to slow down on feeding so fishing is going to be slower for a few weeks until they move into active patterns again.

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie will be coming off of the spawn now. Fish will be feeding much more aggressively making up for lost time eating during the spawn. Crappie will start moving back to their typical structure of choice and should be getting into schools again in the old river channels. It?s time to hit the water. Have fun today!

Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The water temperature is climbing and the catfish will start becoming more active now. The catfish spawn is right around the corner and generally all catfish species will be looking to spawn. Blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish spawn in much the same areas. Mostly spawning in deep tree lay downs that have lots of shade, holes in the bank, sunken barrels and tires. With baitfish becoming active, it?s time to catch some small sunfish, bluegill, shad and frogs and getting the line in the water.

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.
