Lake Nockamixon
« on: Mar 14, 2010, 10:46 AM »
I live in allentown and would like to do a bunch of fishing at nockamixon this season.  I picked up a 15hp motor for my boat so I can use it here.  Not really into bass fishing, walleye's would be my first choice.  Panfishing is fine and I hear there's some good catfishing too.  Any tips on launches or areas to try.

Nockamixon has a lot of structure place in there and should inhance the fishing.  A hydrographic map will be avaliable with all the structure (porcupine cribs etc.)  this spring at poconolakemaps.com

Uplake from 3-mile run when the weeds are on, fish from the launch side and the tree which used to be there on the other side, sluggos and black buzz baits with pork.
Never get excited,there's a reason for everything,I just don't know what it is!!

Right off of Rte 563 there are 3 areas to launch your boat.  Signs are posted
right off the highway for boat launches.  A great lake for Walleyes, a lot of
large Walleyes in Nockamixon.

Finatic, I have never fished Nockamixon but may give it a try.  Any suggestions on how to catch or where to find walleyes?  Thanks

I have only fished Nockamixon a few times in my boat and trolling seemed to be the best way
to get into the Walleyes.  I use a medium to deep diving plug and look for drop offs to troll.  I
have only caught a few nice ones out of Nockamixon,  but I have seen guys in boats catch
some monsters.   8)

I'm gonna have to get the boat uncovered soon and get down there if this weather stays like this.

Fished Saturday 3/20 from 11 till dark. 1 -3 lb smallie, 1 - 3.5 lb largemouth and one miss, all on rockpile by spillway on LuckyCraft 100 Deep Diver . Water temp from 47 to 55 (at end of cove at Haycock). Water pretty dirty. Lots of boats out in AM. Saw lots of dead small crappies at edges of coves.

Headed down tommorow.  Going to try drifting some floating jigs with crawlers if there's a breeze.
