Lake Minnewaska Ice Conditions 2/21/2016

Lake Minnewaska Ice Conditions 2/21/2016 - The  DNR access on the Glenwood side is pretty torn up,

someone dropped a fish house thru, and made the landing impassable. I also heard the same thing on the Starbuck side by the

beach that a house went thru on the landing. The beach access on Minnewaska isn't much better, the ice heaved up, causing big holes from the top of the ice heave to the bottom of

the ground. There is also large crack that goes out from the beech landing , yesterday it was full of good size holes, with lots of water runnig into it.

There is also open water in this crack that a size ten shoe can fit in. So please be very careful. Once you get out onto the lake there is still a good

19-20 inches of ice, but it's just being able to get out there. I've heard the crappies and sunfish have been doing well, my son and I went out yesterday and

only got a few smaller sunfish that was it. Wax worms are a must if you are going to fish for panfish on Minnewaska. We still have plently of minnows

in stock and our winter ice fishing clearance will start soon.

Minnewaska Fishing Report 1/6/2017

Lake Minnewaska Fishing Report 1/6/2017 -

Happy New Year, we hope the New Year is treating you well. Fishing on Minnewaska and Reno have both been good.

Minnewaska has 14-16 inches of ice on it. There are some ice heaves forming around the lake, so you do want to watch out for

them. Best access to use is the DNR landing in Glenwood or the landing by waters edge in starbuck, espcially is you are going to be

pulling a fish house out. If you are looking for a mix bag of fish, walleye's, northern's, bass or sunfish going out towards the 'Wall' by the

DNR access is going to be a great spot to set up. It will defiantly keep the kids busy. If you are looking for just walleye's, head to the bay called

'bottle bay', it is right past priest point, they have been doing well there, and also out in front of Peter's Resort.

 

Reno has about the same amount of ice as Minnewaska, trucks, duel axel fish houses going all over the lake. Out in front of the Green Iguna is a

good place to set up for panfish and walleye's at dark. Another good spot is over by 'blair's bar', if you are looking for Walleye's. The sunfish can be

found on the south side in 12-17 feet of water. Glow in the dark lures work great on Reno, go with the glow red or chartreuse.

 

Have fun fishing and remember 'No ice is Safe ice'.

Ice Report Lake Minnewaska 12/12/16

Ice Report for Lake Minnewaska 12/12/16 - Minnewaska is fully covered with ice, currently I have heard any where

from 4-7 inches out on the lake. We also received 4-6 inches of fresh snow over the week-end, that is on top of

the ice now. There are people out on 4-wheelers as well as sleds on some of the area lakes. Fishing was really slow over

the week-end, and into this morning. Reports coming in have not been great. Possibly the cold front that is over us, could

be causing the fish to have lock jaw? We are stocked up and ready to go, for ice fishing. We have our famous XXL Shiners

in, along with small and large shiners. Our minnows are ready to catch fish, so stop in, grab your bait, fill your

propane tank, get your snacks, and you will be ready for the lake.

Ice Update Lake Minnewaska 12/7/2016

Lake Minnewaska is not froze over yet. Parts of the lake have ice, some are still open. No reports as to how thick it is. The

bay on Reno on the west side is froze over, but I am unsure if the south or east side has froze yet. Alot of the smaller

lakes are ice covered, but it was just in the last day or two that they have closed up with Ice. I heard Grove Lake, Emily,

Pelican Lake, have ice on them. Again, no measurements as to how much at this point. We are stocked for the ice

season, all our bait is in, and our tackle is ready to be sold! Please be careful if you venture out this week-end.

Lake Minnewaska Fishing Report 10/25

10/25 MInnewaska fishing report.

I'm convinced if you can brave some of the weather during the fall, it truly is the best time to go fishing.

Lake Minnwaksa has been very good. Either head towards the Starbuck side or out by Priest Point. A jig tipped with

a fathead or shiner and you are set. Head to 15-10 feet of water, on Priest Point, on the Starbuck

side, you can go right out in front of the beech. We are gearing up for the upcoming ice season here,

taking down the summer items, and getting up the winter. Our ION X augers will be here in a week,

stop in and take a look at them. Have fun and good luck fishing.

Fishing Report Lake Minnewaska 8/17/2016

8/17/2016 - Fishing report on Lake Minnewaska and Lake Reno -

Lake Minnewaska is producing nice sunfish on the weed lines, as well as above the weeds. If you find weeds in 12 feet of water, drop your jig's down to about a foot

above the weeds, the sunfish will be plentiful. Great time to get the kids out with slip bobbers and catch some fish. The walleye bite has been pretty decent too. Lots of people

pulling cranks and some also doing lead core. Don't be afraid to use the good old stand by Lindy Rig with a spinner and crawler. The night bite continues to be good as well for walleye's.

 

Lake Reno has slowed down a little for the walleye action, but it has been hit pretty hard this year with a lot of fisherman. You can still pick up a few, but you need to be patient and look

for them. Try the humps out in the middle of the lake towards the west end. Spinner rigs and crawlers or try puling some cranks over them. The sunfish are in the weeds, you will be able to catch some

nice size ones there as well. 9' - 10' are very common. 

We also have Red tails and Creek Chubs in as well. Good Luck Fishing.

With the rise in temp's this week, fishing has been picking up. More people are getting out and ice conditions are good around the area. Many of the lakes seeing truck traffic now, along with

big permant houses. This week-end on Lake Minnewaska is a family ice fishing tournament, this should draw a good crowd of people to the lake. If you are looking for walleye's this week-end don't

be afraid to try a little deeper, 20-25 feet of water.Good spots to check out is the 'Hole' out by the High School bar, 'Bottle Bay', or 'The Meat Hole', if you are wondering where these spots are on

the lake, stop in and we can show you on a map. Sunfish and Crappies can be found out in front of the DNR landing, follow the bar out. You will be able to see the string of houses sitting on the bar. Shiners

and Fatheads are good choices for walleye's and crappie minnows or wax worms for your pan fish. We have 3 sizes of shiners in again this year, if you are looking to put out some tip-up's, you will want to

check out our XXL Shiners. Good Luck and have a fun week-end.

Ice Fishing Lake Minnewaska Jan 11, 2016

Ice Fishing report for Lake Minnewaska January 11, 2016 -

Fishing has been good out on Minnwaska, 4 wheelers and snowmobiles are going out all over the lakes. As well as smaller

trucks. If you are looking for walleye's, head over to Peter Resort, if you go out in front of there, you will have good luck. Don't be

aftraid to try 15-20 feet of water, seems like the walleye's have moved out a little deeper now. The lake remains, very clear so if you like

to spear, it's a good time to do that as well. Over by the DNR landing they are catching nice panfish. You will see all the houses out

in what we call 'crappie town'. Koep's is open till 8:00 and we have our 3 sizes of shiners again this year. Our XXL ones are great for

your tip up's.
