I probably casted a few hundred times, walked a few miles on the banks, and caught these 2 little guys 🎣
A very tough day on the water, i’m just happy I didn’t get skunked!”

Right: Long time Camanche Angler, Dave Jans shared this shot with us and reported, ” I caught 7 today on 7 different baits- plastics to reaction baits. Fish are close to the shore in the morning and move deeper as the sun warms the water. Water temp was 68 in the morning and 74 in the afternoon.”

Thank you to all that choose Lake Camanche and to those that share your pictures!
