I’m always trying to find the best way to publish the Grand Lake fishing reports that makes it easy on you, the reader.
Now I’m going to try this and see what kind of feedback I get.
This way…all of the most recent fishing reports will be in one place so you don’t have to click links and find other pages to try to find what you are looking for.
So…check it out, and here are the latest Grand Lake fishing reports for June 2015…
June 1 Fishing Report from Rusty Pritchard –
The lake level has finally started to drop and hopefully in a couple weeks the lake will level back out and we will be back to normal fishing!
We did really good on catfish when the water was coming up and the current was coming down the river.
The blue cat were hitting really good on cut bait and we were catching really good numbers of fish.
This is time of year the blue cat are usually going to spawn.
My bow fishing trips were going to start this week but the water is dropping and the fish are going to be pulling out for now.
We shot some really nice gar right before all the rain started!
I put a really neat new light system on my boat and I’m really looking forward to getting clients out to try these out!
The water got so high the carp were past the tree line and we couldn’t get to them!
As the water starts to level out the fishing should get really good again!!
This time of year is usually my favorite time to go crappie fishing!
Those big sows that have just spawned out are going to post spawn pattern and would be in brush piles out in 10 foot of water and easy to catch!
We typically throw [easyazon_link identifier=”B00LDYP8HM” locale=”US” tag=”myfamanc-20″]gogo minnows[/easyazon_link] and let them swing over the tops of the brush piles. Those crappie will hit anything that comes near those brush piles!!
If the water will clear up some it should be good again!
White bass are still being caught on Elk River!
We were out a couple days ago and caught them on Wolf Point and I’ve seen people catching them around the bridge.
I also saw some people catching white bass around Honey Creek Bridge area.
[easyazon_link identifier=”B008ELJ3EQ” locale=”US” tag=”myfamanc-20″]Fle fly bendable minnows[/easyazon_link] have been our lure of choice.
Spoonbill came to a close for me about 2 weeks ago with a record catch…we boated over 1500 spoonbill in about a 6 month stretch!! That shattered my previous record of 1000 two years ago!
Biggest boated for us this season was 86 pounds!! What a season!!

June 1 Fishing Report from Tony Coatney –
With all this high water, I’m going to say something a lot of people will not like but…if the lake wasn’t at the lower level we would have had a lot more trouble!
There are some good reasons they keep the lake down – now I don’t think taking the lake down before Labor Day is good, they should wait – but we have seen this year why they do certain things with this water.
Now is the best time to go look at water front property – that way you know where the water level goes.
A lot of people flooded and that’s because they put homes where they shouldn’t be…there is reason they have rules around this lake.
Now the water is falling and I hope they can get it back down soon so the fishing tournaments can get back here on Grand Lake, a lot of business depends on it.
I did a filming with getalimitoutdoors.com on high water bass fishing – check it out it worked really good.
Large mouth – shallow water has been best throwing frogs and flipping a jig.
White bass – still finding some on humps silver rainbow minnow.
Crappie – been hard to find should be moving to deep brush piles.
Catfish – have been unreal in the flooded grass.
The spoonbill are jumping everywhere.
For that hard to buy for father for Fathers Day – give me a shout and get him a gift certificate he can use anytime.
Until next time…Good Luck Fishing from Tony Coatney!
