ITT - why I've fished every lake in west Nebraska BUT Big Mac.

Fuck all that bullshit, for a stupid cat eyed perch that is essentially the women of North American fish. I'd rather chase cats or pike.

Which there are plenty of those in mcconaughy, its just not always worth if you plan to fish the end of the lake where all the walleye fishermen reside.

Well... No McConaughy for me My homie just cancelled on me!

I did get cureent lake conditions(Not a fishing report) that i'll share in case anyone is interested:

"Quick Update: The docks have been put in at Cedar Vue lakeside, Lemoyne lakeside and both Lake Ogallala docks are in. Martin Bay and Diver's Bay should be in early next week. Diver's Bay was still frozen as of this morning. The Martin Bay low water ramp is usable, just no dock yet. The water temperature as of mid-week was 37 degrees."

This is from the Lake McConaughy FB page posted about 15 minutes ago.

Great to here we can dock at cedar vue again!! I absolutely hate docking at the damn or Lemoyne seeing as how I stay on the complete opposite end of the lake, in marina landing. Sucks your friend cancelled maybe you'll get out there a little later this year. I think im going easter weekend. Thanks for the conditions report!

I'm planning on fishing Big Mac next weekend. Trolling from a boat. How deep or shallow should I be trolling?

The eyes should be moving between deep and shallow depending on the spawn. Spend a bit of time using your electronics to find the stage of the fish at different times of the day/night... troll slow wobbling cranks a foot or two above them at the given time/depth.

http://www.ilovelakemac.com/the-lake/outdoor-report/

As of 4/9/2014

""Daytime success for boat anglers targeting walleye from the dam to North Shore has been very inconsistent to date. Angler pressure and success for walleye at night along Kingsley Dam has been light to this point as the spawning run is just in the initial stages with the cool water temperature. Boat anglers on the dam face are trolling large crankbaits and bank anglers are casting crankbaits or jigs."

Also maybe some good info for you:

"Anglers fishing the dam should be reminded that from sunset to sunrise, April 1 to 30, any boat within 30 yards of Kingsley Dam must travel in a south-to-north (counter-clockwise) direction. Also, all boats are prohibited within 200 feet of the Kingsley Dam outlet and morning glory structures. "
