Tropical Weather System Left Little to Raise Fishing Hopes

Low Lake Levels Still Creating a Drag on Area Lakes

The passing of the season's first tropical system left precious little rain in area gauges, so water levels in area lakes are continuing to suffer, with some still headed lower. Fishing remains in a transitional time until the summer monsoon rains start in earnest..

The upper Kissimmee chain, including Lake Hatchineha, is VERY low. A few bluegill are being caught there by marker ten, and a few bass are being caught on frogs on outside edges early.

On Lake Walk-in-Water, the smart fisherman will try the lily pads and grass in one to two feet of water for bluegill action. Fish the marked fish attractors with an Ole Monster worm or June bug for bass, running up to eight pounds.

On Lake Kissimmee, as with all the Kissimmee chain, the lake is also very low as well. The mouth of the river is still producing some bluegill and shell cracker catches. Start by throwing a horny toad first thing in the morning, then move to outside and start flipping the black & blue tip Senko.
