Minnewaska/Reno fishing report 8.8.15 - Fall is in the air alread, but there is still plenty of good summer fishing left. If you are looking for sunfish, the high school bar on Minnewaska is the
place to be. Nice size sunfish too. You can find you walleye's out there too, also possibly preist point. The walleyes should start moving in there with
in a month. Reno is also a good choice to find some crappie action. Fish the weed lines with a slip bobber and you may even catch a walleye or two. The Koep's
Walleye Challenge Sponsored by Marthaler Chevrolet and Captains Bar and Grill, still have spots open for their tournament on September 12 & 13.
Entry's can be picked up at Koep's, or you can download them from our web-site. All the info is under, outdoor updates, then select the Fall Tournament

getting in Creek Chubs as well as Redtails. If you need anyfuther information, please reach us as 320-634-4660.
Fishing Report for Lake Minnwaska, 6/9/2015 -
Fishing has been very decent on Minnewaska. The small mouth bass are crazy right now, bitting really well up in the shallows. Toss some plastic's into the pencil weeds and you will have a bunch of action. People
are gettting sunfish out by the high school bar bobber fishing with a night crawler. Crappies are a little harder to find right now, but if you work the milfoil beds you will be able to pull some out of there. Walleye's are also very
active right now on high shcool bar, 13-18 feet of water, pulling spinners or plains lindy rings. Don't be afraid to go a little deeper for the walleye's either, 20-25 feet is a good choice since the water is clear this year, the walleyes
are going out deeper. Over by Peter's resort is another great place to try to walleyes. We have all your bait needs, leeches by the 1/2 lbs or dozen's, crawlers by the dozen or 4 dozen, plus golden shiners. Koep's also carry's
non-ethonal premium gas, propane, ice, and we sell fishing license's. We are truly your one stop before the lake.
Fishing Report from Koep's for Lake Minnewaska and Lake Reno 3/6/15
During the cold spell last week, there was not much acttivity on the lakes. Blustery winds and cold temps kept many fisherman inside. However this week-end and next weeks
forcast looks great so thing should start to pick up. If you are looking for crappies I would head to Lake Reno, 11-14 feet of water. Remember to be mobile, if you are not
catching them in one spot, start drilling holes and moving you will find them. On Minnewaska I would head over by morning glory gardens and start out in 10 feet of
water, and again keep mobile. Another good starting spot would be out in the front of the DNR landing. Don't forget some of the smaller lakes too, Pocket Lake,
Lake Mary, Lake Villard, all great options to chase the pan fish. So far Ice conditions are good, no reports of open water on either Minnewaska or Reno. Please
be careful when going out this time of year, it does not take long for that to change. Ice is never 100% safe! Koep's still has fatheads and crappie minnows along
with wax worms, plus a good varitey of panfish lures left. We open at 5:30 on Saturday morning and 6:00 on Sunday! Have fun fishing!
1/30/2015 Lake Minnewasak Fishing Report - Fishing has slowed down some, but they are still biting, just not as fast and
ferious as they were before. If you are looking for walleye's, head over towards the High Shcool bar or also towards
Peters Resort. Both spots have been producing fish. On the hunt for pan fish, remember to be mobile, and on the
move. Out in front of the DNR landing they are picking up some nice size crappies. The sunfish are biting as well
but you do need to pick through them. We still have our 3 diffferent sizes of shiners and are open from
5:30 a.m. -9:00 p.m. Good Luck!
