Lake Jennings Fishing Report

Lake Jennings Fishing Report

by Lake Jennings Staff


Trout moved into deeper waters this week as they acclimated to the lake. Anglers were catching trout by boat or casting from Sentry Point. Depths of 50’ or more were prime with 2-4 lb. test line. Night crawlers and atomic teasers were doing the trick.

One can expect this week’s trout stocking of 1,500 lbs. of trout to be in shallow waters like Siesta Cove and Hermit Cove for the weekend. Another 1,700 lbs. will be stocked next week in anticipation of Kids Day on Feb. 11th. Read about the details in the “Announcements” section
