Snowbank Lake Walleye During Mid-July

Recommended Posts

Snowbanklakeguy

Heading up to Snowbank Lake in mid-july.Does anyone have an idea as to what they (the walleyes) will be feeding on?I'm thinking maybe cicoes,suspended in deep water?Or maybe tucked against steep shelves feeding on...???? Any help would be greatly appreciated.I can always target lakers and pike if I can't find 'eyes though.The last time I was there was early july and we just could not find them.

we were up there in july last year. 5 guys for 4 days, only caught 3 walleyes. the lake is very clear. the owner of the resort we stayed at said the eyes go to 40 feet deep or better. if you fish shallower (15-30') you're going to catch all the rock bass you could ever want. i do know there are trout along the north shore at about the mid point of the lake. we didn't have alot of luck, mostly because we didn't have the right equipment for trout but we marked alot on the locator. good luck.

I usually would catch about 5 per week....very early AM and sun behind the trees PM will bring in fish to more normal depths....unless you are fishing in over 30 feet during the day basically forget about it

Call Smitty's on Snowbank, ask for Denny. Tell him Jim from the Great Outdoors Bait and Tackle told you to call, and said for him to give you the true fishing report, not the Chamber of Commerce spingrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Denny's pretty good about giving out fishing info.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!
