pinchot lake

Grew up fishing pinchot and hated it then, and now that I have moved back into the area I still hate it. I fished from the dam a week straight week and managed to get a few bass. where are the stripers and walleye at ? fished this past weekend out from the beach across from boat ramp 1 got 1 bass. any help would be greatful.

SEMPER-FI
You might find me dead in a ditch one day but it will be on a pile of brass

Re: pinchot lake

Been out hear for about 10 yrs now fish off and on...found plenty of bass and crappie...have not found stripers yet...never really tried for walleye..my father n law says he used to catch them yrs ago...but since he retired a month ago he spends alot of time out there and has not caught anything other than bass crappie and pickerel!

Come and try to take my guns!.you might meet my precious metal collection!

Re: pinchot lake

I used to catch some eyes every year (biggest 25") fishing for hybrids at night. Haven't got any last couple years. Guy I worked with years ago, caught them back trolling crawler rigs, in the creek channel in the middle of the lake. Buckinuts, I had 5 hybrids, and one 18" largemouth the last three nites. Lost and missed some too. Got a 25", 8 lb hybrid last nite that towed the yak around. All by the swimming area after the storm blew thru. I would gladly show anyone how I do it, but no one seems too interested.

Re: pinchot lake

Good luck, I've been to Pinchot a couple of time the last few years and I can't figure out how to consistently catch largemouth out of that lake, or any other for that fact, way different than smallies on the river
