Mount Storm Lake

Rating - Good   

Saturday, Aug 01 2020
Mount Storm has Black Bass (Smallmouth and Largemouth), Walleye and large Striped Bass. The lake can become very warm in the summer months. Making the Bass very lethargic and fickle. Look for black bass to be congregated in and around the cover of downed trees. Bass are attracted to shad and minnow patterns. Umbrella lures (those that mimic several baitfish in a group) would work quite well. Crankbaits and swim baits that mimic wounded baitfish are excellent bait choices. Largemouth Bass can be found along shorelines that are laden with fallen trees. Smallmouth Bass can be caught more frequently in habitats where large rock outcrops are abundant, although they too will sometimes be associated with vegetation and wood that attracts forage fish. The dam wall and creek channels upstream provide complex rocky habitats for Smallmouth Bass. A medium to heavy action rod would work well. Striped Bass can be targeted in open water with a boat. Striped Bass seek out cooler water. Walleye can also be caught using jerk baits, crank baits, and inline spinners rigged with natural bait like nightcrawlers. Walleye will congregate along drop-offs of submerged rocky ridges. The only public boat ramp for this lake is located right off Route 29. Very little shoreline access is available for public use.
