    First time on Stockton since April.  Thanks to Dutch and Steve McBasser for their recent reports which gave me an idea of where to start and with what. My son in the Navy was home for a few days so I got to get him out to do some fishing.  We put in at Orleans Trail and headed to the east side of the dam.  Water temp was 76.5.  Started by throwing a Pop-R and a spinner bait.  Caught 1 on each and then I went to the Ned.  That really produced well up until the wind started to pick up so we went to spinnerbaits.  60 to 65% of the fish came on the ned.  PB&J and Green Pumpkin red were the 2 best colors.  Most of the fish came in one really big creek arm just north of Price Branch.  Fish were shallow in 2 to 4 feet of water.  We caught north of 50 fish but only 5 were keepers.  Caught one fish that sure resembled a walleye but it had to be a bass because I caught it on a spinnerbait!   I think it is some hybrid of a mean mouth because it had teeth! 😀

    Gary and I have been wanting to go to Stockton for weeks but the water has been too high. We took a chance and ran up there Wednesday and to our surprise we found it very fishable. Put in at Mutton Creek and ran up toward the mile long bridge. The fish were very active everywhere we went. We wound up with 4 or 5 keepers and a couple of dozen dinks.....we had a ball. Water temp up in some of the flatter creeks was around 90*. Main lake was 83-84*. We caught 'em on the ned rig, a wacky worm, small top waters, and the little flat rattle bait. Can't wait to get back up there.....

    We got on the water a little after 6 and left before 12.  We caught fish on spinnerbaits, worms, swim baits, and grubs. We fished on the main lake down to Hawker.  We also fished in sons.  We caught 20 bass.  5 keeper greenies and 11 keeper spots.  No big fish but no dinks either.  Here are a couple of green fish and a nice spot.

    Not a Stockton story, but a drum story.  My in-laws had a house on the Council Grove Kansas City Lake.  I fished that lake a lot from the time we got married in 1981 until my father-in-law's passing in 2006.  The fishing was really good for all kinds of species, especially after the 1993 floods.  Walleye and crappie were our main targets but there was a really good population of largemouth and spots.
    Two years ago my son and I went back to fish for nostalgic sake.  We named a cove in that lake "Jacob skunked Grampy Cove". 😀   I started out throwing a baby brush hog and my son and a friend of his were throwing a ned.  We hadn't been fishing 10 minutes and I got a solid bite.  Set the hook and the fight was on.  About a 5 pound drum.  In that day of fishing we caught around 50 drum.  All were from a pound to probably 6 pounds.  Never experienced anything like it. We tried a variety of baits but drum was about the only thing we caught.  I think we had 2 bass and a couple of bluegill. 
    I don't know if the drum just took over the lake, or if they were the only fish biting that day, but I tend to think it was the former.  It was late May when we fished.

    Kyle and I hit the water at. 6.  We went up there was lots of fog and floaters.  We had 4 fish in the first hour. 3 of them were nice.
    It got slow after that.  The bite quit at 10.  We fished until 12 then called it quits.  Had a total of 17 bass.
    We caught fish on spinnerbait buzzbaits frogs shaky and Ned but never could get a pattern.

    Weather people said substantially more rain would be arriving the next few days and that was enough to motivate me to get in a quick trip before it got here....
    Launched at Cedar Ridge South Friday morning about 10:30. Had run the wipers off and on along the way and as I left the ramp I donned my rain jacket to ward off some off the drizzle. Keeping
    dry wasn't the only reason either...the lake air was chilly for a June day and the jacket felt good. There was a stiff SW breeze creating a 10" chop but the the predicted 20+ mph wind wasn't
    happening...at least not yet! Started out fishing a fire-tiger stand-up jig with half a crawler off a point in 24-30 ft. It didn't take long before I had boated 2, 12"  channel cats then a 19" walleye.
    The predicted wind now arrived and boat control was becoming challenging. Soon the sun came out and the jacket came off but it seemed like the bite was now off too. Switched to other jigs
    and tried 2 more points and was rewarded with 2 more cats. By now I'd had enough so I decided to run downwind to Masters Cove and try trolling for crappie in the more protected back of the
    creek. Pulled 2, #7's and 1, #9 Flicker-shads ... 2- Fire-tiger and 1 Pink Cougar. All three produced and 6 keeper crappie were boated plus 1 short. 
    The crappie were suspended at 15 ft in 26- 30 ft of water. 
     
    Conditions:
    Lake Level- 884.6 ft. (about an inch higher than last week's trip, roughly 17.5 ft over normal pool) 
    WT- 75 degrees on points and 77 in the creek
    Clarity- 30"
    Wind- SW  15-20 mph.
    Cloudy with drizzle in late morning becoming warm (78 degrees) and sunny in the afternoon.
     
    Even though he wouldn't lie still...I did manage a quick pic of "Walter" walleye. ☺️
    Tight lines,
