News from Lake Huites Lodge, March
Fishing in General
It has been a strange year for Lake Huites. First, they drew a
lot of water off in December, which kind of spooked the fish. Then
we got 6 feet of snow in the mountains between Christmas and New
Years. That, in itself, wouldn’t have had a major effect, but
we then got a warm rain the first week in January which melted all
the snow and dumped cold water into Lake Huites. This really spooked
the fish, and they went suspended in 40 to 60 feet of water.
Anglers used to fishing Lake Huites had to change their tactics.
The winning combination was fishing deep with Carolina rigged large
lizards or worms. The good news is that all that is behind us. The
lake has been slowly filling. The fish have moved out of the deep
water and up into the canyons. First it was the 2 to 4’s then
the 4 to 6 pounders. Know the bigger fish have moved up into the
channels. The top water bite is still off but the bigger fish can
be had in the channels right off the banks. The fish are there. You
may have to change your thinking a little, but they can be had.
We Listen to Our Customers
of our customers have expressed an interest in fishing from fully-equipped
bass boats. Well, you got ‘em! Our plan is to add five Skeeters to our flotilla that will be available as an upgrade package to our
customers. Currently, we have two on the water. The Skeeters are
fully equipped with dual Fish Finders, Dual Trolling Motors,
Water Temp, GPS and a 150 hp Yamaha. We have added these to our flotilla
to satisfy the discriminating angler who desired more power, more
accuracy and more comfort.
These boats are meticulously maintained by Russ Johnson at the
lodge. Russ has adopted the Skeeters as his new babies and keeps
them in perfect operating condition
