Try walleyecentral.com and look up there fishing reports. Also, do a search on Kinzua on their website. There are several guys there that fish that lake.

Do you mean the tourney in July? I was up there fishing early in the morning when they took off in the morning. It was neat seeing all the boats fly across the lake. This year I want to follow several boats to see where they go to fish. I have been fishing this lake for several years without success. Maybe I can follow them to find where I can fish.

sorry though, didnt mean to be a pest about it! Thats amazing that people are so tight lipped about that lake.... I dunno I guess I was just taught differently!

i have a hard time getting info too!but over the yrs ive met some locals that have givin me some good advice. the lake is slowly becomming commercialized and the locals and me dont like it! NEVER GO THERE ON A HOLIDAY WEEKEND IT TURNS INTO KIN-ZOO! LOL thats the 1st thing to learn about the lake. clear water and water skiers-jet skis drive the fish deeper exept at night they come in close to shore to feed. just a few clues about the lake. im not kidding look for me and ill help ya out.

Yeah I can understand with all the tourists coming into town. My friends and I are most likely going to be renting a boat and doing some fishing and I have a portable depth/fish finder that might help me. We are going to be staying at Willow Bay campsite. Wish I had my own boat to take, but I'm still just a poor college student

we use to do well right out of sugerbay. Find the ledge right where it meets the lake. Not a lot of boat traffic. You can launch there too.

2 feder creeks run into suger bay. the bay is shallow up into you get by the main lake. There are a few ledges. I fished that lake for years as a kid. If you start in the middle of the bay in the morning work wornharness. We use to jig on the ledges, use leaches. any other question send me a pm I have a few spots
