Report 4-17-99

Lake George surface water temperatures are 42-44 degrees. Anglers are targeting the mouths of the feeder brooks in anticipation of the smelt spawn. Hague Brook has given up some trophy trout 31 -33 inches weighing 14-17 pounds. These trout were caught right in front of the brook in 20 feet of water on the bottom using Banjo Minnows. The public dock in Hague has also been good with some catches of lake trout on live bait 28- 31 inches. In the southern basin trolling in front of Edmonds Brook and Smith Brook fishing was slow. Indian Brook in Northwest Bay was more productive with salmon and lake trout. Seeing some signs of birds near the brooks but not charting any schools of smelt yet however the action is yet to come. Lures of choice were blue rainbow sugar coat thunder stick, Michigan Stinger orange and copper, rainbow green Speedy Shiner.

Bass season opens the third Saturday in June.
