No news yet.

Finally, a North Sterling fan! Last year, that was the lake I visited most. Caught a bunch of wipers and one time nothing but crappies! Things should heat up right around mid March to early April.

Sounds good love to fish Sterling keep the info coming on open date. Maybe meet you out there to catch some wiper.

Hey Chris

What do you use for wiper? My reason for asking this is because I notice they get really picky sometimes. Some days, they'll hit nothing but mussell. Some days, nothing but crayfish tails. And some days, my favorite, lipless cranks and rooster tails.

I fished North Sterling Res about last September 7th or so from 5 pm till 10 AM next morning. Action was non-existent with night crawlers.

After dark, I went for catfish, and finally caught one, a 10 pounder. Fished till 10:30 AM next morning and got nothing else. Like to froze overnight, sleeping in my boat.

Fish jumped and fed all around me, but didn't like my offerings.

1redEye, another setup that I have used is a jig tipped with a Exude curly tail. Sometimes I tip it with a minnow or a piece of crawdad tail. Regardless of what I tip it with, I suspend it right off the bottom and twitch it every now and again. I have almost lost a pole or two by not paying attention. Those Wipers can surprise you with their strong strikes as you probably well know. I like to anchor around 18 to 16 feet of water when I go to this method. I agree that N.Sterling is one of the premier Wiper lakes in the state. Ever try NeeNoshe or NeeGronde out past Eads? T-Fin

Hasn't n Sterling gotten down to dead pool the last few years? I know several of the lakes in the I 76 corridor have problem with draw downs in most years, is North Sterling one of them?

Thanks for the additional jigging tip. As for Neenoshe and NeeGrande.. I've only fished Neenoshe twice. From shore the 1st time was excellent. Large wipers, very large..... My largest in fact. The second time I went, we got skunked. Neenoshe was where I was catching white bass with top water when wading.
