GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO BAIT

  • We stocked 1500 lbs. of trout from Wrights Rainbows during Thanksgiving week. Our next trout stocking will be the week of December 9th.
  • Trout are being reeled in over in Eagle's Cove and Cloister Cove and the bait of choice is powerbait. It's very popular choice and works great!
  • Did you know? A heavy rainfall raises water levels, darkens water color, and puts big trout on the feed. After a heavy rain, fish begin gorging themselves. Trout will move from cover to feeding in more open water. 
  • Fishing Tip: Scent attracts bites! Sweeten your lures with attractants such as garlic and salmon egg powerbait. Stock up on powerbait at our bait shop open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 6:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
  • Conditions: The water temperature is currently 66 degrees. This week's weather forecast is predicting another storm earlier in the week.  
  • Winter Break Lake Hours: We will be open DAILY for boating and fishing 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. between December 20th and January 5th. The lake will be closed on Christmas Day, but fishing from the campground shoreline is available.
  • Fish from the campground shoreline every day of the week! Purchase a lake fishing permit at the campground kiosk from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Nightcrawlers and some basic tackle can be purchased at the campground kiosk as well. Anglers may fish from Sentry Cove over to Eagle Point any day of the week!
  • Fishing kayaks are available for rent. They have multiple rod holders and water tight compartments. Children can kayak if their parent or legal guardian is also kayaking. Kayak rentals are $10/hour or $30/4 hours. Active duty military personnel may rent kayaks for $8/hour or $25/4 hours.
  • We love receiving pictures from our fishermen and guests! If you have a picture you'd like to share, please email them to ranger@lakejennings.org and we may feature them in our next lake newsletter or on social media.
