Stonewall Lake

Rating - Good   

Thursday, Jul 15 2021
Largemouth bass, musky, and panfish. Its a shallow lake and still contains lots of standing timber. Stonewall is at the summer pool level. Largemouth will be moving from shallow water spawning locations to deeper water as the water temperatures increase. Find areas where shallow water with cover is next to deeper water. Rip rap banks, shallow points, road beds, standing timber as well as trees that have fallen. Creek channels and large mats of hydrilla can be very productive summertime fishing spots. Topwater lures and weedless presentations of soft plastics progressing to faster crankbaits will prove effective in these areas as temperatures increase. Post-spawn bass can tough to fool, but gizzard shad imitations of the correct size will locate actively feeding fish. Musky move to deeper water this time of year as well and head to areas that provide refuge from high surface temperatures. Successful angers troll and cast large plugs, spinners and specialized musky baits. Crappie, perch, bluegill (panfish) this time of year is great. Try beaver huts, blow down trees, bridges, and hydrilla weed mats 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 of fishing because action can be fast. The tailwaters of this lake can also produce many warmwater gamefish such as bass, yellow perch and crappie. You may still be able to catch a trout that carried over from the spring trout stockings. When streams and rivers are high, tailwaters can be some of the only fishable water. Stonewall has good access and parking.
