Fishing Report

June 14, 2024 - A.J.’s Fishing Report

____________________________________________________________________________________________________

TROUT & SALMON fishing on Lake Winnipesaukee & Squam Lake is on FIRE!

Most trips anglers are boating double digits. Lots of Salmon in the 14-16" range with an occasional Rainbow or two mixed in from 25’-35’ down (5-8 colors on Leadcore) around the attractor blades. Lakers are being found between 30-50' (5-8 colors on Leadcore) or even deeper. Downrigger attractors are really taking off and enhancing the fishing quantity. Stop by the Winnisquam Country Store to check them out and talk to AJ on Thursday, Friday or Saturday. Check back soon on our website for an upcoming collection.

BASS FISHING

The spawn is over but the feeding frenzy is still on!  During this post spawn the Smallmouth are moving into the drop offs and structures such as rock piles & marker buoys.

The Largemouth are moving into the weeds like lilly pads and under docks, boats etc. Night-time fishing is picking up with Black Jitterbugs & Hula Poppers.

 LURES THAT ARE WORKING BEST:

  • Stick baits (Rapalas, Bombers, Challenger *gold is hot)
  • Spinner baits (white & Chartreuse)
  • Senkos (Yamamoto & Bitters Bait)
  • Tubes (GitZits w/ AJ’s NON-lead Jig Heads *green pumpkin, pumpkin-seed & watermelon are hot)

Enjoy the weather and the fishing season.

Tight Lines!
