Title: Princeton Area Fishing Report
Post by: Brent Davy on April 23, 2012, 09:00:36 PM
Some of the local highway lakes around Princeton are opened.  Fished one of them this past weekend with good results.  Fish were mostly hooked on chironomids but they could also be taken on shrimp earlier in the morning, leeches, and large boatmen.  On the way back to the cabin it looked like Chain L. was very close to coming off.  If it didn't happen today I bet it will be tomorrow, especially if they get some wind.

I don't think I have ever started the still water season fishing in such warm weather the last two days!  Hit 27 degrees today!!  I was so warm I ended up having to fish in my boxers and bare feet...LOL

Not a lot of large fish but we did hook a half a dozen each that were over 20'' or larger but there was a ton of smaller ones that kept you're interest up.

Thanks for the great report and photos to accompany it!

Sounds like an excellent fishery and time to have been on the water.

Cheers,
Todd
