bobys I haven't seen blue mesa during koke time, but I know damn well how many boats they will fit on top of eachother across the shoreline of the dam. It is a battle out there be prepared!! Im going out to lake mac first weekend of may but i'm going to be targeting other species I don't deal with all that walleye nonsense. I don't eat fish usually so no point in me dealing with all those boats to try to catch a walleye

gary Here's a report on W.C.
http://www.walleyecentral.com/forums...d.php?t=331257

I've fished the spawn from shore and boat, with excellent success from the boat. Most of the dam is very, very difficult to fish from shore with the rip rap being made of what looks like WWII landing obstacles on the beach at Normandy. Nice weather and the trollers are bumper to bumper and hugging the shoreline. Silver and black rogues and shallow shad raps have worked best for me when I could get close to shore. ( Think Wind) Otherwise shad raps and frenzy's. To beat most of the boat traffic, try getting out after midnight.

Just join the conveyor belt of boats on the dam. Hint: there is a reason why those boats hug the shoreline. Have fun! I did it a few times in the past. It would be an understatement to say that I prefer less crowded waters. There are nice fish to be caught though.

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. "

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!
