Lake Lamar Bruce


Tuesday, February 21, 2017 2:54 PM

Water temps are running in the mid 50's. Most of the action of late continues to be at the pond where anglers are taking advantage of a unique opportunity for rainbow trout. MDWFP stocked approximately 500 trout in the pond ranging from 9 - 15 inches. There is a 3 fish per person limit with no size restriction. Anglers must have a fishing permit and valid fishing license to participate. On the big lake, bass anglers are starting to target those transition areas where fish will start staging for the spawn that isn't too far off. Anglers are using jerkbaits, spinnerbaits, and lipless crankbaits for those fish in the transition areas and along the levee. The bream bite was good over the weekend. The fish were holding around points and piers in 8 - 10 ft of water and were caught by tight-lining meal worms. The crappie report is poor, but anglers are still targeting fish along the levee and around the drain structure. Try both jigs and minnows to see which the fish prefer. The catfish bite is considered fair with a few anglers catching some fish of the ends of the piers using redworms and stinkbait.

Anglers planning on hitting the lake need to remember there is a slot limit on bass. All bass between 16 - 22 inches must be released immediately, and only one fish over 22 inches may be kept. The daily bag limit for bass is 10. Any and all walleye caught must be released immediately. The bream limit is 100 aggregate (both bluegill and redear) total per angler. The daily limit on crappie is 30. The catfish daily limit is 10.

Here is the new updated lake depth map.
