Wind

Recommended Posts

Heading down for a day trip Monday from kc.  Only been to Stockton one other time.  I see forecast for wind is about 10mph, gusting to low 20's. SSW direction.  

Was just curious with a wind forecast like that are there any particular areas of the lake I should avoid? I was planning on fishing essentially North half of the lake from State Park up to the dam.

I have a 17 foot deep v aluminum. not too worried about it but just want to take precautions not knowing the lake as I've heard they can get some big waves. Was planning on putting in at Crabtree but thinking perhaps Orleans trail or something on the west side might be better as if it gets too Windy, I could cut over to the west side and fish those areas.

Thanks for the info.  Just wasn't sure if there were any areas of the lake prone to really big rollers with ssw wind in the low 20's, that I should avoid.  I'll just stay aware!  Thanks again!

Yeah, from Hawker up to the dam. It's wide open there with no wind breaks, especially if the wind is straight from the south.

With a breeze like that it shouldn't be too bad. If gusting 30+ you should probably just stay on the little sac arm, it's a little more sheltered.

Thanks for the suggestions.  Given wind, I think I'll see if any of them Bass, walleye and crappie are present in the mutton areas.  Looking forward to learning new areas!
