Fishing Report for Lake Minnewaska 12/21/17
Merry Christmas from all of us at Koep's. Fishing has been pretty steady for the walleye's, crappies and sunfish on Lake Minnewaska. Walleye's are in the 13-16 feet of water range,
and you will also find the crappies hanging out there. If you are fishing for walleye's, use a glow jig tipped with a shiner minnow for the best bite.
Sunfish are very plentiful right now in most spots on the lake. Small jig tipped with a wax worm will be your
best bait of choice. Out from the DNR access by the 'Wall' you will be able to pick up many sunfish and also crappies. Please remember, there is still open
water on the lake that stretches for about 1/2 mile. Use extreme caution when traveling on the lake, especially if you are somewhere where there are no tracks. Ice depth
ranges from 5-10 inches. Some places have very good ice, some is marginal at best. The open water it towards the South East side of the lake. It basically goes from Morning Glory Gardens,
to Halverson Point, over to Cannel Cove. It's shaped in a triangle so the open water goes for a ways. Hopefully with the colder temps coming it will freeze. However, remember the ice
underneath will not have 10' of ice right away. There are lots of other good places to fish on the lake, please travel to those areas. We will be open Sunday December 24 from 6:00 - 5:00 and
will be CLOSED for Christmas, so get your minnows early. Wishing all of you a happy and safe Holiday season.
