is kahle lake getting killed?
my buddy and I spent the Thursday before the bass opener up at kahle lake (june 14) - we usually fish at least a day or so before the opener to avoid crowds and since we never keep any bass this is usually a fun catch and release day. we usually fish with minnows and crawlers and do real well on panfish too - jumbo perch, slab crappie and large gills.
well, the bass were there as we caught 54 - BUT not one was over 14 inches (most were 11 inches or so) and much more disappointing - we caught 2 perch, 6 gills and 0 crappie. WTF?? this was the worst we've done for decades. has anyone else observed this decline. quite a few straw hats and buggies around - I think they killed keystone power dam years ago and it has yet to recover.
