chester woods shore fishing

4 posts in this topic

I am taking the family camping this weekend at Chester Woods. We plan on doing some shore/pier fishing. My 5 year old likes catching cats and carp. I would love to get out on the lake with my boat, but since we are bringing the camper we will have to fish from the shore. Any advice on which pier or area we should concentrate our efforts on? I will follow up next week with what we get ahold of. Thanks

Welcome aboard! Good question about Chester. I have seen people catch some small bass and gills off the docks before. Also there is many trails that lead around the lake. Some have some decent shore spots to fish. Good luck to you and Alex.

if you like catfish, at chester woods there' a hole across from the canoe rental's dock, use peeled large shrimp, early in the morning, i've caught cat's anywhere from 5 to 10LBS there, goodluck!

It was a great weekend for camping, but the fishing was slow. We managed to catch a few small bass (one was maybe 15")and bluegills. The bluegills where all hand size or bigger. (As long as the hand doing the measuring was my 3 year old daughters hand grin.gif). I had luck using a 2 or 3 inch rapalla minnow at dusk. We'll give the catfish a try in a couple weeks.
