I have had my young boys over there a few times last summer, and they both caught a couple of nice cats. Just fishing bobber/minnows along the bank on the opposite side from the boathouse down around a fallen tree. Saw some other good sized cats pulled out while there also. Good luck!
FYI: They don't call it "catching" for a reason. I've been skunked everywhere. That being said, you can try your luck at Lake Isabella
Tomorrow, I'm going to try a new fry, yellow perch. They are releasing 400 lbs. Sept. 18th, 25th, Oct. 2nd, 9th, and 16th. After that Trout: October 23rd, 30th, Nov. 6th, & 13th. Channel cat stocking schedule was cut off Sept. 11th. I don't always have luck, but I've always met someone to share some stories and pass along some tricks when I do hook a bass or channel. All clean fish- farm raised and spring fed lake. See ya there when we're shoulder to shoulder!
boats are rental only but you can hook your trolling motor to one of theirs. I take the kids fishing there alot its free for kids under 12 I believe, good for blue gills, and if you go right after a stocking the catfish bite is good.
They're putting perch in there now? wonder how that will go.
thanks for the info! Like I said it has been yearrrrsss ! since I have been there. Ohhhh 20 Years. danggg I'm getting old. but what the heck if you can fish it and get a hook up. then its all good!!! thats what i'm talking about with the kids being there. the good old days. thats when i had my kids there. dang it brings back good memories. I grew up out off of state route 48 5 miles north of Loveland, had a lot of good memories there. so get the family together on the reunion and get some good memories together to rememberthe good times They always stay with you.
Obviously you can get skunked anywhere....I think that goes without saying. I have fished this lake 5-6 times. I don't think it is worth the money. In the Loveland area (where I live) there seem to be a couple of decent fishing areas. The Little Miami has always been pretty good for me and Winton woods/sharon woods have boat rentals at both lakes. Lake Isabella is very clear so if you fish keep in mind that bank fishing with a bobber (for the kids) maybe a bit difficult. Either way good luck and more importantly have fun.
I have been there with my dad and brothers and always caught something. i would say we have had more fun catching tons of little blue gill on hot dogs than on other days. i have also caught a few cats but nothing to write home about.
