During the month of July, we compared day and night movements of the remaining eight and found that the individuals in one foot of water did not travel far. However, the fish that were found around the three foot depth, typically moved to shore near logs and timber at night. It is my belief that because muskies are a lie and wait predator that there would be no need for them to move much between day and night. Recently, we have noticed that there are a large amount of young of the year gizzard shad, around three to four inches in length, near the locations of the muskie. Therefore, this provides a large food supply for these fish, further explaining their lack of movement. What is the point of moving if the food is all around you?
There have been some reports of people catching muskies below the dam and in the reservoir. Does anyone know of anybody catching muskies anywhere around Eagle Creek Reservoir? If so, what size and where at?
