Fishing Adventures

Emigrant Lake 2-22-10

So monday was the final day of sunshine that we’ve been having for about a week now so i had to hit the water. I havent fished this lake in ages, last time i was there it was for the water slides. I only fished for about an hour and half but i still had a couple bites no fish banked though. Bites came on night crawlers and rainbow powerbait.  Still got lots of great pictures of some geese, the HS boat team, the old grave yard and Emigrant Lake.

  1. The first bite was on half a night crawler which is quite a bit, i have a feeling it was a channel cat biting it. Second one was a combo of powerbait and worm. The lake is nice, it does have a high mercury level warning on all fish though except for the trout. Also its only about 18 miles from my house and u take the freeway most the way so its a very short drive which is reall nice.

    If i get a pontoon or kayak or something i plan on fishing here more often for some of the bass and maybe catfish.

      I fished Emigrant on 9/4 and really good luck. I got in the water a little after 7am and within 15min I landed a nice 2lb bass at the south end of the lake. I was using a Rapala spinner(looks like small trout). then the bite was off for the next hr. I hit the shore line and landed a 1 lb bass then lost one. I got out into the deep water thinking the bite was on and had no luck until i hit the other shore line and that’s where i landed another. Around 10am all the ski boats and jet skies hit the water causing the conditions for the float tube a bit miserable so i headed for the shore. plus I had to make the ducks game….

      • Nice! I havent fished there in quite awhile. It does hold some really nice Largemouth and Smallmouth bass. Iv been meaning to go there now that i got a pontoon. It does get quite windy there so iv been hesitant. I watched the end of the 2nd quarter of the Ducks game, i knew it wasnt gonna be a good game. I was on the road to Portland for a concert that day. Slayer and Megadeth 😀

        Check out some people post fishing reports, although not many people from this part of the state post on there. And also iv found alot of fisherman are secretive. Do u do any trout fishing? I plan on going to Diamond Lake real soon.
