Quick Early August Rowan Lake Fishing Report

Posted by:

Just a quick report…

The weeds are exploding in 12-16 feet of water now as the surface temps are in the low 70’s.  I fished nothing connected to shore the other day and focused our efforts on all main lake reefs and found the BIG girls just lounging around out there.  We saw 11 put one in the net and should have had three that day… that’s fishing!   The interesting thing was that it was 71 degrees down to 18 ft and 60 degrees at 24 ft , so that’s why the big fish are not very far down and out there just roaming a round.   Things are shaping up nicely for that Aug-Sept bite.

Excellent lake trout fishing still going on and everyone is getting bass.  Jeff’s pic below of a nice laker and his son Chris released a giant 53.5″ x 28″ Rowan Lake Muskie yesterday!  We received a couple of Email muskies pics from the Helmick brothers and Rick Vaughan back from their June trips up here!  Thanks guys!

So many guests are now using their smart phones to take their fish pics and go home w/o leaving a copy here….please send me your pics and we’ll post them here on the website!

Thanks for checking in!   More later as I’ve got guys waiting on the dock ready to go to work out there!!
