So I decided to take my boat out into Lake Kilarney today, it was my first time here. I haven't had any luck in Geneva or North lake lately so I thought I would give this place a shot. I started trolling a few rooster tails with no luck, then I switched to a Spoon that was Red/Brass color, and the bass started hitting on almost every cast. Unfortunately they were mostly small, but I caught two that were a bit bigger then my hand.

Still no trout, but only small bass...

Perch in Killarney, due to the nice weather, are very active and really attack worms. They are of decent size and seem to be deeper than normal. A little patience and you can get a full stringer.

Report is for Sat. I met up with my brother to hit up some federal way lakes but the weather had them turned off.
We started at Fenwick, I only caught one dink, but had a lot of dink hits. The state planted carp in there. The lake had a algea bloom goin on vis. was about 3 ft.

Next, we went to steel, We both had some more dink bites but that was it. I caught a decent size perch on a 4 in. senko also. Then wind and rain was pretty bad there.

My bro had had enough of the rain/wind, so he went home and I went to
killarney to check it out. I only caught 2 there biggest was about a pound.

I fished from 1300 to 2000. We used tackle ranging from frogs to jig'n'pig. Water temp around 71.

Perch were biting just off bottom in south end of lake. No monsters but # made up for it, think the larger ones were maybe 10-10 1/2 inches.
This lake has a gazillion perch and the big bass don't seem to be as prominent as in years past. I did catch 3 LMBs maybe 8-10 inches long.

Went to Killarney about 6 am today. Fished about 3 hours. Fishing from a 10 foot aluminum boat.
Used various plastics, green salamandars and worms and a white yama grub which was the most productive, 11 largemouth boated mostly around 10-12 inches. Beautiful morning with little to no wind.

I was inspired by dschinski's report to put up a small lake perch post too though this is a bit late.

Killarney was treated with chemicals on June 10 for aquatic vegetation apparently. The post said eating fish was fine, although I limited the perch to eating once a week just cuz.
Managed two surprise holdover trout on ultralight gear so they were fun. Only about 12 inches but healthy looking. One of them swallowed a plastic worm that had blocked off its digestive tract so it was likely doomed eventually but was healthy when I caught it.

The perch were almost right below my feet, as I was in a float tube and the water was around 9 feet deep fishing just away from surface weedline in the main southern portion of the lake. Biggest perch was just over 10 inches so not huge. I put in a photo with a couple dink perch too next to the trout for people to reference what a dink is LOL. Actually, I caught a few that were so small I even released them (I usually keep every perch I catch because of overpopulation problems on these small lakes and encourage others to do likewise).

Caught a few bluegill too but the most effective method for perch was dropping a worm right underneath my feet, reeling in half a crank and waiting. Sometimes spinning in the float tube to put some motion to the worm worked well. When that didn't work, I'd throw on a bobber and cast/retrieve w/ worm about 4-5 feet under bobber. Probably caught 25 perch in total over about 4-5 hours so not relentless action but it was fairly consistent and did hit one school that kept me busy for probably 45 minutes.

Hit up Killarney late afternnon Saturday.
Caught a pretty good mess of bluegills and some perch but threw back some small ones (bluegills only, little perch went to the compost bin).
Hard to see in the pic, but caught the trout on (real) worm so kept it. I caught a couple decent bluegill and then some medium-small ones (the dinks went back unless bleeders).

The perch were either too small (they went to the compost- maybe 4-5 inches) or else were about 6-8 inches. No big ones but caught two decent ones about 8-9 inches back-to-back thinking I found a pocket of big enough ones. But then that was it.

One event caught me offguard. I was casting up close to shore near overhanging brush getting bluegills when I had a decent LMB literally try to EAT my bobber. It slammed the thing. So I figured I must have cast right over the top of a nest or something.
Didn't have any bass gear with me but noted the spot. Did catch a couple smaller LMB with one about 12 inches and the other a dink of about 6-7 inches. C&Rd them.

It was fun though to hook into a mess of fish even if they were mostly small and they're big enough for a fish fry :-).
Wish I could hook into a mess of bigger perch though in one of these small lakes. Couldn't find them in numbers today. Theme for the season so far.
The bluegill kept the pace high though and they seem to be nearing spawn (females fat with eggs).

Have fun out there and stay safe all!

Had some time to burn so hit the lake at about noon. Overcast with a slight drizzle, water temp around 59 degrees. Launched at the public ramp and casted toward the first rise I saw right past the ramp. 11" trout gobbled the 16# Chironomid like it hadn't had a meal in days. It was fun bringing him into the boat (already decided that I was keeping two for dinner) being as I left the net at home and all my flies are barbless. He fell off the hook just as he cleared the side of the boat so all was well. Fished the small potrtion for another few hours with no luck, tried several other flies letting the wind give me a very natural drift. Moved into the larger portion of the lake and decided to park it between the islands and try some power bait off the bottom. Used green/black Nitro bait on a 14# egghook 48" off the bottom. Got nibbles and my bait stolen every time I threw it out for an hour or so. About 1630 hrs, the lake turned to glass and they started rising again so I went back to the Chironomid and worked my way to the far side of the lake. That nasty cold front blew in out of nowhere and I was drenched within a few minutes. Decided to fish my way back toward the boat ramp and if the weather didn't improve, that was it for me. By the time I got back over there, wind had died down and fish were rising. Hooked into a nice fish, at least 13-14" and fat on that original chironomid and the no net in the boat thing worked against me this time. Lost him and decided to call it a day.

Time fished: 5:00pm to 7:00pm
Weather Conditions: sunny and very windy
Water Temp: 60 degrees

I stared trolling with a spinner from Fish Creek Spinners but due to the windy condition I had to witch to a lure that did not sink as fast when I made a turn trolling. I witch to a Pistol Pete fly (#6 Black Panther) and caught 5 fish all about 8inchs long. All the fish were caught trolling in between the two islands. I only kept one fish.
