Zebra Mussels    

Adult Zebra Mussels were found 7/31/08 at Lake Afton.

The zebra mussels reproduce during the warmer summer months and veligers (larval zebra mussels) are present in the water column. Zebra mussel veligers are too small to be seen with the unaided eye and they can be found in boat livewells, minnow buckets, boat bilges, water toys and anything else that is capable of holding even a small amount of water.

Be sure to drain all equipment before leaving the lake to avoid moving veligers to other waters. THIS INCLUDES MINNOW BUCKETS, BOAT LIVEWELLS AND BILGES!!!

REMEMBER!! Zebra Mussels are also present in Clearwater Creek below the spillway!

White Perch Fair Up to 8" Use a small hook with a small piece of worm, or a small spinning lure. Remember that white perch may not be possessed or transported alive.
Channel Catfish Good 1-3 lbs, up to 20" Catfish will be feeding on winter-killed shad this time of year. Try cut shad on the windy side of the lake.
Crappie Fair to Good Up to 12 inches Winter crappie fishing can be good. A jig and minnow combo under a slip bobber is a good bet. Use the smallest bobber necessary to float the bait. Evening and mornings are best.
Bluegill Fair up to 8 inches Try a small piece of worm under a bobber. 
Largemouth Bass Fair to Poor up to 20 inches Anglers seeking winter bass should try small lures fished slowly near deep structure. Several days of warming weather can activate the bite. Cold fronts will shut them down.
