Hi Italo, i will be fishing valens lake conservation area as per your recomendation, what lures or techniques do you recommend we use to target bass and pike on the lake. Thank you Italo.Posted on August 17th, 2015
I would recommend you use two different presentations. One for the open, deeper water in the dam area where the average depth is 5-7′. There I would suggest you either twitch a Rapala Husky Jerk #11 or a Rapala X-Rap, or cast a Vibrax #2 spinner, or 1/4 oz. spinnerbait in the open pockets. There you have a 50/50 chance of catching either bass or pikee. The other presentation for largemouth will need to be weedless fishing the shallower area around the bridge which includes heavier weeds & stumps. There you can fish Texas-rigged 6 or 7″ plastic worms, a weedless surface frog, a weedless spoon, or a Texas-rigged soft-plastic minnow (unweighted).
