Silver Dollar Area Ontario
Although I haven't targeted smallmouth, they appear plentiful on Watcomb in the northeast corner (beyond the camper/campsite) where I've caught plenty. 12-14" was common.
Just got back this past Sat night...water level is down 18-24" in my estimation compared to last year...only the second time I've seen the complete rock reef above water on Watcomb southwest of the point and the large island.
Good week this past week...average on qty of fish and size. Weather was exceptionally good...first time in 18 years that I didn't fish in the rain and we fished all day every day. Bugs were way down but that could've been due to the consistent wind. Surface temp was warmer than normal...in fact some of the fish were warmer in the hand than prior years.
Saw more moose this year than any year prior. Had two standing in the road at different times on our way home in the early morning...that got our hearts going.
Reminder to put your names on your take home freezer fish and fish to achieve your OWN limit which includes what you caught that day and what is in your freezer. Trust me on this...
Yeah I've got a few on Watcomb around the spillway an by the islands but never really got into them. So I haven't been up there in 2 years but I'm hearing young lake is going downhill as far as walleyes anyone else noticing this? Maybe it's just a rumor 2 years ago I didn't have any trouble catching walleye couldn't have gone downhill too much in the last 2 years. Anyone else going up the first week in July?
Returned from Young Lake Lodge Saturday. Weather was good. Bugs weren't bad. Water was at least a foot low. Fished Young, White Rock, Pepperbell and LOB's. Caught plenty of walleyes and northern. Tammy got the biggest northern at 37.5 and Bobby had the biggest walleye at 26.5. Everyone had a great time of course. Saw moose and bear a few times. 7 year old Brady fished hard and caught alot of fish. He threw a rod in the lake one day but we got it back. Didn't get a chance to have a beer with my friend Jibberish, the week goes by too fast.
I get up there in about two weeks. Is more rain expected. or will the lakes be low all summer?
My daughter is old enough that she asked me this year to teach her how to tie knots for the hooks/jigs. I have two kids that just LOVE to fish and can't wait to get there.
I was up for a week the second week of season. Lakers and walleye were both very shallow. It was just an average trip this year nothing special in size this year, however I did lose a hog of a walleye 10 feet from the boat.The low water level restricted me from from accessing the creeks to get to several of my favorite lakes.
