    Trout Trollers tournament Calderwood Aug. 24th

    Several have asked......Boat, kayak, submarine, live bait, artificial lures etc. it’s all good. should be a good time it’s always fun at the weigh in. We should find out a lot about calderwoods trout population. Hopefully will see a big brown. You never know maybe a laker. I’m sure it will fish similar to Cheoah with all the generation that’s going on and most who fished that day in late may on Cheoah had a great day the numbers of fish caught were high by everyone.

    Trout Trollers tournament Calderwood Aug. 24th

    Interest has been quite high for this tournament. Has the potential to be our largest turn out. Conditions should be ideal with consistent generation as fontana starts to ease water levels down for the year. I would expect good numbers are going to come to the scales. Feel free to share this post/link to other social media/websites Come on out and fish.

    If you can’t find one locally I know several places in NY. All they work on are linecounter /trolling reels. You would have to ship but they would be like new

    I Was eyeing August 24th Calderwood reservoir. Right now we have 3 votes for Calderwood.

    I’m going to propose a change to the August get together. Feel free to chime in. South Holston was the plan for August. Would a change to calderwood be an option you would consider. The fishing conditions are going to be prime as Fontana will be releasing non stop for its winter drawdown. It’s going to fish very similar as Cheoah did and that tournament was a blast as everyone got into a bunch of fish. South Holston will fish well but fish are deep and survival rate of any fish will not be good. Camping and lodging options are good at calderwood for those traveling. Feel free to chime in and we can make a decision and set a date. Our last two tournaments we have had 4 and 5 boats.

    Fishing the Trout lakes 2019

    Two years ago in Oct. we were taking lakers on flasher flies 145ft of cable out on the riggers. My sub troll had water temp mid 70’s down 90ft. We took a rainbow 95 down that week. That preferred temp break gets pushed way down till things really cool down and the lake turns over. Bad thing about the fall is we killed every fish coming up through all that warm water while bringing them to net.

    Fishing the Trout lakes 2019

    8/4 Hit Chillhowee reservoir today. Conditions a little less than ideal no current and lake looked 2-3ft down. Steady bite basically picked away at them, nothing fast and furious. Fished 7am-1:00. Finished 14 for 20, 8 rainbows and believe it or not 6 perch. Several trout we lost boat side. Spoons early, dodger squid later in the morning 25-35 down on the riggers, wire lines 55 back and 70 back on a setting 2 1/4. Nothing big and nothing small 14-18” were the rainbows. Perch were nice eater size. Fished lower lake 78 on top 63 degrees was 25ft down on probe. A lot of bait and fish were plump

    Lake Ontario trip

    IMO Lake Ontario fishes much better and the diversity of the fishery is incredible. I’ve fished Michigan and my brother fishes regularly out of Milwaukee harbor. This year on Michigan the kings are running larger than normal thanks to reduced stockings and successive good year classes of alewife. However if you look at catch rate/size Lake Ontario is the best. A king over 40lbs is what gets people’s attention in any port in NY. Kings in the 30lb range is an every day occurrence late summer early fall.

    Lake Ontario trip

    We fished the mountain right off Stoney point, and -4-6 miles southwest of the Stoney point light house. Browns were right at the bottom we’re 58-62 degree water was. That was fluctuating by the day but 85-100ft right out of the harbor in the trench. The browns were 5-7lbs. My buddies boat and mine ended with six browns we fished only for them one morning. Kings came 100-130 feet of cable out over 140. Lakers we’re pasted on bottom 140-150ft water. When we messed with the lakers it was fast and furious pulling bells and peanuts.

    Lake Ontario trip

    Thought I’d put up a quick report. Spent the last few days chasing trout and salmon in Henderson harbor Ny. Wind and waves was the theme. When we could get out the bite was excellent. Spoons, flasher flies, and bells/peanuts did the job. We took lakers, kings and browns. Biggest king 19lbs and biggest laker 18.5

    Fishing the Trout lakes 2019

    My biggest lakers often fall to the smallest of baits depending on the time of year it is. I have often followed the rule bigger baits winter-spring and as summer progresses into fall down size the baits significantly as the young of the year shad/alewife/bluebacks are in the 1”-1 1/2” size. Just like in a stream those trout key in on specific size bait and feed on it exclusively. The fish in watauga are stuffed year round with all the bait in the lake I always tell the story, you go out for a steak dinner with your wife and stuff yourself. On the way home she wants to stop at a bar for a drink. The bar tender pours you a drink and sits a menu in front of you. You push it away because your full but in three minutes you are picking at the peanuts in the bowl of bar snacks. A lot of those trout are gorged but they often can’t resist a peanut size spoon rolled in front of them at 1.6 mph. It works.....I attached a pic of the peanut sized NH1 that I sell.(top spoon in pic)This is one of my favorite colors. Im headed to Lake Ontario tomorrow to fish for kings/lakers and browns for the week. As of now the weather/wave forecast looks perfect. Will fish Lakers one of the days, it’s all cowbells/peanut/ spinglow rigs . I hope to post some pictures of some big lakers taken on peanut rigs.

    Rachel it’s looking like sometime in the middle to end of August. I’ll propose a date in the next week or so.
