Fished Kinkaid from 6:30 AM to 2 PM on Thursday 3-15.  Water temps no higher than 48.  Still cold for this time of year.  Saw one low 40's fish but he wanted nothing to do with me.  Just cruising by in about 5 feet of water over by the water treatment plant.  Johnson creek arm remains unfishable for me.  Chocolate Brown water and you lose sight of your lure less than six inches from the surface.  Normally the water is warmer up there but today it really wasn't.  The main lake and the bays above the Marina are reasonably clear.

Spent last Saturday and Sunday on Kinkaid for the first time. Water temps were lower than expected at 45 degrees. Targeting muskie in the upper creek area but all-day rain muddied the water so much on Saturday, all creek channels were the color of mud with about the same consistency.

Sunday was post-frontal and beautifully clear and cold. Predictably poor fishing but a beautiful morning on the water.

Lots of crappie anglers and based on the early boat traffic it looks like the fishing pressure will be intense.

Next 2 weeks should be great fishing!

Thanks.

Now that's a slab.  I've caught a few that were almost as long but no where near as fat as that.  I wouldn't be surprised if there's a state record of almost any species in there.

Fished Kinkaid this morning.  Water temp at launch was 52 and at dam.  Warmed up to 54 a few miles up the Johnson Creek arm. Warmest water I found was 56 in the hidden lake area.  A lot of anglers were catching Crappie in there and I caught 3 bass, the largest about 2 pounds.  Did catch and release a 34" Musky in there as well.  I don't think these fish actually spawn in Kinkaid but this fish was cut up and missing a fin (pictured) so he must have been going thru the motions pretty hard.

Was down two weeks ago and it was about 50 at the launches and down by the dam.  Up the Johnson Creek arm it got as warm as 53.  I am going down Sunday and I will report then.  Mostly a Musky fisherman but usually run into some pretty big bass along the way, some as large as 6 pounds.  Don't fish much for Crappie so I'm not much help there.

Does anyone know what the water temp. is?

Also, how's the crappie, bass and muskie action been?


Thanks and tight lines!
