GeorgeWatch Lake

3 posts in this topic

I want to go on an adventure to George Watch lake for slimers. It is a long walk from where you can park at the Centerville beach so I need a warm day. Nobody ever fishes it. They have to be concentrated in the somewhat deeper water/channel. Probobly doesn't hold any big fish but I think about going there every year.

Got a buddy who use to live on Peltier they went back to GWL all I remember then saying it was shallow 4-5' who knows might be good for the pike, we use to catch them pretty good on the backwaters on the Rum in 2-4' next time i see him i'll ask him again if they caught anything.

IMHO you'd be wasting your time. George Watch in the summer is no deeper than a couple feet. I paddle it in a canoe often, picking up trash and it's a lot of dragging bottom and pulling up muck with the paddle. The only place I've ever gotten slimers is off of Main St. Even then it's only hit and miss every now and then. If you decide to try it there are two easy ways to get on it. You can get there from the canoe access, west side of Main St. by the spillway from Peltier. Or the main part of the lake from the Wargo Nature Center off of Main St.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
