What depth should I start?

Recommended Posts

I live and fish in Ny but was hoping someone might be able to recommend waht depth I should start for rainbows and browns where most of the lake is 30fow or less. Any help is much appreciated.

Try in 4-7' and dont make much noise. This is where the rainbows should be. I have had trouble finding the browns this year but i would go into 8-12' for them. Also try sight fishing this can be a real blast. Welcome to FM, you can get alot of info here. grin.gif

90% of the Rainbows, Splake, and Brookies I have caught this winter have been under 7 feet of water. You may need to try different depths if you aren't seeing anything-sight fishing is the only way to go because you can watch what direction the fish are coming from-deeper or shallower water. Don't be afraid to try 10-12 feet of water if you aren't seeing anything shallow.

    • Good yo hear from you again!  Hope your search for property goes well and your time in stand is fruitful.
    • Nice pics jbell! That is a nice yellow garden spider you got there.
    • I had a nice size garden spider on my garage door. It stayed there about 3 weeks. Had a mate who I assume did his business and met his doom. I finally needed to open the door so I safely caught it and let it go in the woods near our house.  Her body is about an inch long. Probably about 3 inches total.       
    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
    • I assume you burned your deck down immediately after taking these photos.
    • Never been a big fan of webspinners, but those orb weavers are cool to look at and harmless. And this is the time of year that you seem to see them.   More of a fan of Wolf and Jumping spiders myself.  
    • Cool!  Did you take a picture when you smashed it? That big som-abatch could use a 22 through it! 😘
