I'm getting the feeling that fishing lake pine is close to futile now...... draining the lake, removing structure and cover.....
several posters on the internet have used the word drained.......it was not 100 percent drained....imo it had 1/2 the water in it than when full..........fish were unharmedI'm getting the feeling that fishing lake pine is close to futile now...... draining the lake, removing structure and cover.....
Good for the LMB.... Bad for the other fish. I've definitely caught some nice bass out of there in the past. I'd like to see first hand what it's carp offerings are like.I've spent a few minutes fishing there twice recently and talked to someone else who had spent more time there. It's not what it used to be, for whatever reason. The lake was drained down to about 1/3- 1/4 it's usual surface area for months. I'd guess that any fish that could fit in a largemouth bass' mouth got consumed during that time.
The Lochmere HOA is def coming down on non-residents. With Cary Police trespassers will be cited - do you want a criminal record?The manager there seems to make a lot of decisions I don't understand. Last year they cut down a bunch of trees for no reason at all as far as I can tell. They had one of the nature trails shut down for months and months. Instead of fixing the trail they just kept putting up fencing to try to keep people out. The fence wouldn't stay up a day before getting stomped down And they re-did the playground between the ball fields and turned a very nice space into a muddy mess, took out a slide and other features. Still, it's nice to have green space and water 5 minutes from my house.
I used to fish Lake Lochmere a lot... need to sneak in there again. Don't give the tailrace a second look, nothing to see there
