Wednesday July 7, 2011, Fly fishing for bream on Carters was very good this morning. I fished alone along the south shore west of the beach, across from the boat ramp and caught 35 nice keepers in a few hours. All fish caught were on a white popper with red and black spots.

"Carters Lake - On Wednesday (3/2), the water temperature was 51 degrees in the headwater shoals and the water color was muddy. Senior fisheries biologist, Jim Hakala, and his crew found large male walleyes ranging from 2 to 5 lbs concentrated primarily in 2 to 5-ft of water along the rocky shoal and he caught a few walleye in slightly deeper water on the rocky points downstream to the Big Island (see photo of Jim with two walleye). Jim said the density of walleye was the highest he has ever seen on Carters. Jim did not find any female walleye, which means the bulk of the population has yet to move upstream. Walleye fishing should improve substantially over the next two weeks. Ridgeway Boat Ramp is the closest ramp to these walleye honey holes.

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Fall Fishing Tip provided by Guide Chatt Martin: One tactic is all you need. Trolling. Get a pink or black colored crankbait that gets down 8-12 feet (I like Bandit 200 and 300 series crankbaits), and put it 80-100 feet behind a boat and drive that boat around in 8-12 feet of water pretty slow. 1.2-1.8 miles per hour seems to be the blessed speed. You will catch crappies, and you'll be surprised how many. This is a great tactic when you don't have a fishfinder.

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.
