Stick Marsh & Farm 13

Capt. George Welcome
September 6, 2006
Stick Marsh-Farm 13 - Freshwater Fishing Report

Sometimes it is better to start off with bad news first and then follow up

with good news so as to temper the shock of the bad news. However, in this

report I am going to start off with the good news, but you have to promise me

that you will keep it a secret.

The road: relatively smooth once you are past the first section. The grader

hasn't done the job as much as the rainfall that the area has been receiving.

The Lake: levels are high for this time of the year so navigation other than

using common sense is safe everywhere. The only thing that is an issue is

floaters, but they are for the most part very visible.

Current: the pipes adjacent to the parking lot have been open for several

days now and as of yesterday all three were open producing a strong current. The

Farm has been running the pump house on and off over the last few days with some

pretty decent current flow being generated. The front and back spillways are

closed, which for the inflow spillway is good because it is a weedy mess just

the other side of the gate. If and when that gate opens you can expect it to

take several days to have the debris out of the area.

Marking fish: The SW and central south areas of the Farm are where we are

marking the most fish. Areas adjacent to the N/S ditches are showing the most.

The water is cleaner in the middle south of the Farm, however we marked the

least in both bait and fish in those areas.

This gal came from that central south area just east of the center N/S ditch.



This gal came from almost the same area two days later.



If you come out you will have most of the lake to yourself. The high heat

that we have been experiencing over the last 2 months has kept most fishermen

home. In addition is has kept most of the bass in hiding during the daylight

hours.

The flowing pipes in the front have not produced. The pump house current has

not produced. Although marking fish, most of the south end of the Farm is

producing only sporadic catches. We checked the NW corner of the Marsh yesterday

but that proved to be a fruitless effort.

My suggestion is stick with the Farm and try to find a bait that will produce

for you. The top fish came on a Senko, and the bottom came on a rattle trap. We

have not found any one bait that will produce multiple catches so mix it up and

keep on casting.
