fishing is allowed at wachusett between the first of april and the last day in november. No boats are allowed so the key to fishing here for lakers is to find deep water within casting distance from shore. Large spoons (1/2 ounce) such as kastmasters, krocodiles, and little cleos are probably the best lures to use when targetting lake trout. Cast the spoon out and let it sink to the bottom. watch the line as it sinks because fish will often strike on the drop.If you see the line do anything unusual set the hook. If not when the lure makes it to the bottom start a slow retrieve. As far as colors go, i prefer anything with perch colors, as perch are a forage fish for most predatory species. Also, any lure that has spots on it is great for when the fish are spawning. Lake trout lay there eggs near the surface in open water. As the eggs sink they will often be fed on by other lake trout in the area. This is the response you are looking for by using a spoon with spots on it. The spots simulate sinking eggs.

Fished Wachusett yesterday (8/23/07). Much to my dismay, it was quite unproductive and we only caught some very small smallmouth/perch. Does anyone out there know where to fish that is particularly good? There are many gates and it's such a big body of water that I'm feeling without some insight I'll have nothing but frustration there. Any tohughts wopuld be appreciated.
