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 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):
With Cheshire Reservoir at 41 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Largemouth bass will be feeding at this water temperature but will be much harder to catch. On Sunny warm afternoons its a great time to throw a crank bait, jigs or slow roll a spinnerbait at 5-10 foot on sunny points and drops off of sunny flats. Largemouth Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be slow with the water temperature at 41 degrees. It's time to fish deep and slow. Try some deep primary points, drop offs, and old river channels with rocks. Jigs, plastics and deep jerk baits will be your best bet to boat a smallmouth.

Cheshire Reservoir Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie fishing is sometimes at its best with the water temperature down this low. Crappie will be in large schools and follow the large shad schools around in extremely deep water. Find the deepest parts of your lake in old river channels and scan your graph for schooling shad. When you find the school, drop your plastics or live bait down to the bottom of the shad and get ready. Many crappie fishermen will be catching awesome numbers and size of fish this time of year. If you are brave enough to get out on the water this time when the water temperature is this cold, it can really pay off. Be careful out there, remember to boat safely. Never take any chances at these temperatures.

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):
Walleye function very well in the colder water temperatures. Try fishing some open flats and definitely use live bait when the water temperature is this low. Plastics with scent added will also produce results, but nothing beats live bait for walleye.

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 arenít 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.
