Question Echo Lake in Union County?

Hitting it up tonight after work, first time this season. Anyone got any reports on how the action is? Are the fish hitting on anything specific?

Talk to CatfishOnTheLake or check his blogs at http://www.catfishonthelake.com/. He fishes there fairly regularly, as well as the other small lakes and ponds in Union County. I'm sure he'll probably chime in.

It gets stocked again tomorrow......Wednesday. You might give Seeley's Pond a try before the water temps get too hot and the fish die. It's smaller than Echo Lake and they put in big breeders.

Thanks for the plug Rob.

There's two Echo Lakes actually, Lower and Upper. Lower Echo Lake gets the trout and yes, the water quality usually sux. I've been trout fishing there a bunch of times but the trout hate me. I have caught millions of tiny-ass bullheads there though. Upper Echo Lake is just up the park road. It has no trout, but the bass fishing is decent. A lot of them are small, but there are bigger ones in there. I've rented the paddle boats and banged close to 20 bass off the far shoreline in a couple hours.

Thanks Catfishonthelake, I've been checking your blog out. I was over at Echo last night. It looks like upper is closed right now, fence all around it. Lower...trout weren't all that active either. Also, seeing I haven't been in Union County all that long maybe you could direct me to a few decent fishing spots, I like to travel to fish on the weekends but I love throwing a line in at night after work and don't want to travel all that far.

That fence doesn't go around the whole lake. If you walk down to the water, it stops and there's plenty of shore access. If you continue past the Pavillion on your right and walk on the grass all the way to the end, there's more openings down there as well. Also, the paddle boats are in the water and they're prob renting them soon if not already. I think it costs $10 for an hour and it's well worth it to be able to fish the opposite side of the lake. Just don't use any Texas rigged worms or cranks because there's some kind of fence on the bottom that you'll snag on every cast. I'll PM you some more info on Union County spots. There's a lot.
