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):
At 58 degree water temperature largemouth bass fishing is in pre-spawn now. It's time to get fishing. Female bass are going to be moving up to the spawning beds. Male largemouth bass will be starting to build the spawning nests in protected coves. Bass prefer to spawn in weedy and woody cover deep in coves that will be protected from the wind and other elements. This is the best time to catch the lake record bass. The female bass will be feeding until they reach the beds and start the spawn. The smaller male bass will be attacking lures also. It is on like donkey kong!!! Hit the water NOW, we can?t believe you are reading this and not fishing right now. GET OUT!!

Stumpy Meadows Lake Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The smallmouth bass spawn is in full swing now. Fishing will become slower but won't turn off completely. If you are fishing for female bass go with plastics and really slow your presentation and stay around the spawning beds. You should be able to find some larger females and male bass on the standard spring patterns. Female bass will really start to slow down on feeding and the fishing is going to be slower for a few weeks until they move into active patterns again. Hit the water NOW, we can?t believe you are reading this and not fishing right now. GET OUT!!

Stumpy Meadows Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The crappie spawn should be really heating up now. Crappie prefers to spawn on gravel bottom typically with brush and/or emergent vegetation for cover. If the lake is void of gravel bottoms, find the rocks or rip rap. Crappie will use the larger structure rocks for cover. Cast some small grub baits in the shallows looking for the spawning crappie. Good luck today!

Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arent going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
