Stonecoal Lake

Rating - Good   

Wednesday, Jul 01 2020
Stonecoal Lake is well known for its largemouth and smallmouth bass, walleye, musky, and panfish. Stonecoal is a deep lake and perfect for canoe or kayak fishing. The lake level does not fluctuate and will be low in times of no or little rainfall. Largemouth will remain in deeper water locations close to shallower water as the surface water temperatures increases during sunny winter days. Find areas where shallow water with cover is next to deeper water. Deeper weedlines in coves can be productive winter fishing locations. Slower-moving lures such as soft plastic flukes and crankbaits are good as temperatures begin to decrease. Bass will be in 10-15 feet of water as temperatures dip and feeding actively around areas of cover. Walleye like to congregate around the brush piles and downed trees as water temperatures fall. Musky become more active this time of year as well and hold in areas with good ambush cover. Successful angers troll and cast large plugs and specialized large musky baits. Crappie, perch, bluegill (panfish) angling this time of year is great. Successful anglers will try the upper end of the lake near beaver huts, blow down trees and creek channels as water temperature decrease.
