    March 19 th
    Took a trip yesterday, suffering from cabin fever, went southand looked at the waterways.
    twin lakes unsafe and melted about 20 feet from ice, weston the same, deep creek, the same, devels creek same, the north end of these lakes are open for about 20 yards? Hawkins pretty much the same,I think thats it for the season, time to wax the boat.

    deep creek does not have LMB in it hasnt for 5+ years now.. 24mile doesnt have brook hasnt for a few years now.. they quit stocking them in the mid 90′s. condie doesnt have rainbows hasnt since it was last drained 10 years ago… and condie will be very poor fishing.. this year twin lakes canal company drained condie to a mud puddle and the pelicans and other birds had there way with what fish didnt get sucked down the canal… there are also SMB in axander.. not trying to pick every thing apart here, but there are some mistaked that need to be fixed so people dont try to fish for somthing that isnt there…. also if you want to catch the big trout out of chesterfield or deep creek, fish a Cut’r bug black leech or changable craw 1.5″ tipped with a crawler, bounced off bottom. http://www.maniaccustomlures.com is where you will find that bait..

  3. Charlie fife says:

    Chesterfield has been pretty steady. Fish caught on Mill worms. typical sizes are around 10 inches. They are real soft biters though have to be on top of your game.

  4. David Suisse says:

    David McPherson comments are pretty accurate. If you could get into Lamont it is good fishing, but the roads are all snowed in. Twin Lakes has enough water, just no fish. Drought conditions are probably the cause. Condie seems to have only a few fish for the same reason and the road is also snowed in now. Weston is very spotty. Occasionally you can get into some nice perch. There are some good sized trout and the bass are around 12-15 inches now.

  5. david mcpherson says:

    Report about 2/4/13 went south today, could not get to johnson or ,lamont with out long hike through snow or having a track layer of some sort?
    Went to twin lakes dident apear to have any water?
    Went to weston, fished untill 3 pm (two of us) with out a bump.tryed bait, hardware, spoons, everything we had, not a bump.
    Ice had two layers with water between, three inches on the first and about a foot on the second.great day but no perch!

  6. Dennis Byington says:

    I thank you very much for the fishing reports. I shop at both stores quite often. I would like it if you stocked quick fish in the size 5. But thanks again for the fishing reports.
