The snakes are out around the water's edge. Be very careful and stay alert to your surroundings.
Now selling live worms and catfish bait during office hours
The heat is on! Catching fish in the heat of the day is not happening on a consistent basis. Park opens at 7am, be here early to have any chance of catching fish. Thursday, Friday and Saturday park stays open till dark. Come out after dinner and increase your catch. Stay in the deeper water as the water temp continues to to climb.
Wiggly worms are still working on the catfish and perch. Find the water depth and set your bait half way down under a bobber. Depth-chart near pier or on this website. Large perch are being caught around Nook #4, especially between the beaver dam and lake dam. Lots of debris under water where they hide, so be patient. (some poison ivy has been spotted on Nook #4, so be aware while crews try to remove it)
Windy afternoons are not helping the "catching" part of this activity. Reports are good fishing early before the wind chops up the water.
A friendly reminder that this lake is a 2-pole lake. That means that each person may not be fishing with more than 2 poles at one time.
Please toss your broken fishing line in the trash cans. These lines will damage mowers and harm the wildlife.
Park staff has started a feeding program to have a healthy fish population. The feeding is done from the end of the pier. Stop by during the week between 8am and 9am and watch them eat the feed.
Stop by the office and tell us how the fishing was. We will update this page when we hear from you. Send us your pictures of the catch from Lake Kyle and we will get them on the bragging board.
Lake Level and Water Conditions
The lake is about a foot below full. The areas west of Nook 2 and Nook 5 are extremely shallow, only inches deep. Stay on the east areas of the lake where the fish will find deeper waters. New picnic tables and trash cans are ordered for the south side of the lake. Please remove all trash.
Nook #2 are nicely cut and trimmed, water is shallow so work the bottom and leave the bobbers in the box.
Nook #3 is in deeper waters. Cast toward the main spillway with spinner bait for best bass action. Cast to the north with live worms for good perch and hunger bass.
Follow the "Orange Trail" markers to cross over to south side of lake. Park Maintenance Crews have completed the improvement projects of Nooks #4, #5 and #6. It is great ground condition completely around the lake. The deeper water is near the dam.
