fishing on Gervais

12 posts in this topic

A little help? I am thinking of going after walleyes on Gervais. I've only been out there once(before opener)and could really only identify one piece of "classic" structure. Are they up in the weeds? What do they like to eat?

I would look for fish near the steep dropoffs around the whole lake, especially by the creek. The main lake point and inside turns of that point are also good areas. The lake has a healthy perch population. Id bet that is what the walleyes target mostly.

I dont fish 'eyes much but when I have I didnt get much or any size from Gervais.

Any size to the perch?

Many are bigger than average for the metro but still not big enough (my opinion) and not many of them to get a meal. You may run across some 9"ers.

The weeds make it almost impossible to fish right now.

Good thoughts... Really? Too weedy even in the main basin there? Thanks TurnUp, DNR reports average #'s and size (grain of salt) so I fugured i'd give it a shot. Thought it might not get many people going after the eyes. Looks like they stock it pretty good and the forage is there (I was hoping they were maybe hiding up in the weeds). Thanks Fellas

Can a person even get into Gervais from the access? It was pretty low last year.

Ive caught a fair amount of walleys in the weeds, mostly the flats on the north side, but the fish were small. As far as the launch its a good deep launch. but doesnt have a dock. The only thing that would be affected by water levels is the channels between the lakes. Be careful I tore up a prop last year by a rock under the bridge heading into Gervais.

That's what I meant. How is it going under the bridge from the access into Gervais?

I was out about three weeks ago and got through fine trimmed up. Plenty of boats were getting throught that day. I even got through the northernmost channel. 1750 crestliner fishhawk. I plan on trying again this week. I'll report any results.

      169 overpass (293rd or county 9) north of Zimmerman...take the off ramp and go east (right) to county 19 take a right going south through the S curve and hang a left at the end of S curve on 289th Ave take that about 2 miles to Blue Lake Dr take a right and then take your first left a couple blocks later to the landing.

      So as far as live bait rigging what works best? Shiners? Suckers? Fatheads? As far as this time of year goes.
