Has anyone fished Mt. Morris lake recently? I remember fishing there years ago with my dad and uncles, but that was well before the dam broke. Its got to be 20 - 25 years now since that happened and I'm wondering, can anyone tell me what the ice fishing is like these days?
76° - 80° F
91° - 95° F
Fished Johns Lake for the first time attempted for trout...no luck. Saw 2 monster browns, 24 inches??? One I had hooked but broke off. Fished 3 hours using spoons, rapalas, crawlers, minnows, leeches with the only action coming on leeches. Appeared to have a strong thermocline established at 10-12 feet around the lake. Most fish marked were 7-15 feet scattered over the lake. Also got a few small largemouth 8-10 inches. Didn’t see any fish in the shallows. No panfish anywhere. Water was 74-76 and clear. Fished the worst possible time 10am-130pm and it was HOT as hell. I’d imagine overcast or lowlight would fare better.
Any tips on trout here would be greatly appreciated. I’m new to the trout thing and only would fish them occasionally.
