Bass fishing is starting to pick up again ! You can really catch them well on Dark sleepers in the backs of all bays right now.Nixon Beach was on fire yesterday. Good luck to all in tournament on Sunday , I predict it will take 15 lbs to win it . Tight lines , everyone.

Surprisingly, the fishing hasn't been terrible the last two weekends with the 82+ degree water temps, 100 degree heat indexes and the algae bloom.  I have been finding the big gills---although sometimes I have to do some searching---some crappie of nice size, and I even hooked into a walleye that was just under the 18" limit.  Been finding everything deep.  Of course bass are willing to bite on just about anything so I don't even bother targeting them anymore because you can catch them with your eyes closed.   I was out Saturday again and the big blue gills turned on at 3:00 in the afternoon in the bright sun of all times.  I was practicing catch and release that day, but I had my 8 over 8" in less than an hour and would have had my limit of 25 in no time if I would have continued.  I hooked a nice one deep and decided to quit since I was not going to be able to clean fish that night and I wasn't sure if he was going to make it.  They were really active all of the sudden.

Fished yesterday and found that the bass were not all that active.  I did catch some bass but nothing of real size to post about.  However, I did catch them on two baits. One was a purple fly (not a fly rod) and the other was a rubber worm.  Not a lot of talkers on here. So I figure that most like to read and don't share any of their information or knowledge.  So, I will post every time I drop a line into this lake

It was a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend for fishing , all species were willing to bite ! The one complaint I have is while fishing the main lake with my buddy , waterskiing boats were getting within 10 yards of us ! Please people of ACL , respect the other people on the water, this behavior is unacceptable. Tight lines and good luck to all!

Bass fishing has been tough as of late with most of the bass recovering from the spawn. This weekend might be good as the weather looks favorable, remember to practice CPR  , please don’t harvest bass over 15” !! Tight lines everybody ! Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

egras1 thanks for the general information.  That is all I am looking for.  Wow, one fisherman responded in over two weeks that is disappointing.  A private lake like this with the inability to hire a guide or public launch to facilitate the learning.  I really thought there would be more guys willing to be helpful.  egras1 again thank you.

Bigred1080--Walleye are tough to catch---not because they are not in the lake, but because you can't keep the bass off of your line.  :)   I have caught a couple of nice walleye already this year off of leeches and minnows.  Have also caught some monster crappie but they get tougher to find when they are allowed to be taken---not that you can't find them, but they are all over right now and much easier to catch.  Found some very big bluegill yesterday, but they were in deep water-----one was 11"+ and 2 more over 10.5".   Found them in 20' of water.  The gills in the bays did not want to cooperate yesterday, but it shouldn't be long for that.  Fishing shallow in the bays with waxys or crawlers in the next few weeks will begin to produce some nice gill fishing.  You should be able to figure out the lake fairly quickly.  I just started fishing it last year and I've learned a lot in 12 months.  I'm on everything a lot quicker this season than last.  Good luck.

We are new property owners on the lake and I am just hoping that a few fishermen will share some advice.  I am not looking for GPS locations, but being new to lake fishing (mostly river) would anyone offer advice for fishing this lake? My wife and son are new to fishing and the best way to keep them wanting to fish is to put some fish on the end of the line.  They are not much for eating fish as we are all more CPR. I myself prefer walleye fishing, but getting to know the lake will take some time. So any advice, suggested methods, bait, or best times would be helpful. Thanks in advance and I hope to meet some of you on the lake. Tom

Caught a couple of very nice walleye the last 2 times out----both are still swimming.  Bass have been eager to bite as well.  The pleasant surprise has been the size of the crappie.  We have been getting quite a few of them and none under 11" long so far!
