Martin Lake is currently 43.1 degrees. Recently, visitors have been catching some
nice size catfish. While fishing for
other species has tapered off, fishing can still be good depending on time of
day and location. Trout and sunfish will
gather around structure and move up and down in the water column as the day
warms and cools. Finding structure to
fish around is key. Northern pike will
be active on nice days this time of year during the warmest part of the day,
usually between 2 and 4 pm. During these
times, pike can occasionally be persuaded to take top water baits, making for
some exciting hits.
Horseshoe Lake is currently 44.2 degrees. The lake is closed to boating for the season,
but shore fishing is good. Again
structure is important to finding fish.
Fishing around natural points where there may be steep drop offs is good
place to start.
