It had been a few years since I fished Lake Conner,so I thought I'd revisit this lake...see if I could hang a few Silvers,like we used to do back in the 80's,when I was a kid. I managed to squeeze my small boat down the unmaintained public launch located on the north shore, and began trolling slowly along the shoreline with a small spinner. I noticed some fish spooking in the lily pads as my boat passed, so I chucked a Rapala up in there and hooked a few tiny, hungry Largemouth Bass.I switched up to a Buzzbait, knowing that I could avoid the little guys and maybe entice a big ole Hawg with that bait...sure enough, A mean boy of about 3# slammed that buzzer with malice,followed by another decent sized fish of a couple pounds or so.The best fishin' seemed to be in the east end of the lake, near the breakline between 20 and 6 feet.I switched back to trolling for Silvers, hooked a few smallish rainbows, lackluster little stockers...never did hook one of those chrome bright Kokes that I remember from years ago...This never was a great fishing lake and still isn't, there are more memories than fish now. Hope those little salmon still figure out a way to spawn in there, but I suspect that the Spiny Rays have wiped them out, or close to it. It was a nice fall day, good to just re visit my old fishing hole and remember..

Came out here and it was me, my grandson, and his best friend (both six years old) we fished from the dock. I used a bobber with eggs, my grandson used powerbait off the bottom, and his friend used a bobber and powerbait. My grandson caught 4 fish all between 8"-12" his friend caught two and one of them was 17", and i caught 2 trout but got bored so i flipped a lead head into the lilly pads and hooked 5 bluegill, and one 3 pound bass. Overall it was a great day.
