7/25/2016. Milfoil Weeds are plentiful and the dead ones are sporadically accumulating on top of the water making it hard to fish both top and bottom. Going weedless only get more frustrated so we didn't bother. I was told by the DEP that they just treated the lake so that would explain the build up. Where we could fish we used spoons and jitterbugs. The spoons drew several types of brim, bass (small and large mouth) by were Horn's Beach use to be and several small pickerel around the boat launch area, The jitterbug was effective for a 15" large mouth over by the spillway.

Cheshire Reservoir Largemouth Bass Rating:
Cheshire Reservoir Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- in summer with decent water level in the lake. use minnows . the larger the bait the larger the fish. if you like smaller minnows you will get bass pickeral perch and maybe crappie
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is in full spawn now the water temperature has climbed up to 64 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.

Smallmouth bass are generally their most active at 64. Baitfish are much more active in this water temperature and the smallmouth bass will be feeding aggressively throughout the day.
Cheshire Reservoir Crappie Rating:
Cheshire Reservoir 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!
Cheshire Reservoir Walleye Rating:
Cheshire Reservoir Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- never experienced walleye in this lake; in fact I doubt they are in there
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.

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.
