Stonecoal Lake

Rating - Good   

Wednesday, May 15 2019
Stonewall Lake is well known for its largemouth and smallmouth bass, walleye, musky, and panfish. Its a deep lake and has a 9.9 hp limit which keeps the lake quiet and has a backcountry feel which makes it perfect for canoe or kayak fishing. Largemouth will be moving from deep water winter locations to shallower water as the water temperatures increase. Find areas where shallow water with cover is next to deeper water. Rip rap banks, shallow points, and road beds, standing timber as well as trees that have fallen. Head of coves can also be productive springtime bass locations. Slower moving lures such as soft plastic worms and progress to faster crankbaits and topwater lures as temperatures increase. Pres-pawn bass will also be in just 4-6 feet of water as temperatures climb and feeding actively before moving onto the beds. Walleye like to congregate around the dam face and upper end as water temperatures warm. Musky move to shallow water this time of year as well and head to small tributaries and shallow coves. Successful angers troll and cast large plugs and specialized large musky baits. Crappie, perch, bluegill (panfish) this time of year is great. Try upper end of lake, beaver huts, blow down trees and shallow coves as water temperature increase. Live bait (minnow on light jig) or small plastic jigs can produce many fish and is a great way to introduce a new angler to the sport.
