We have leeches now and if you change the water every few days and put lettuce in the containers they last forever.

Good luck getting leaches that far into summer....Better plan on using worms and cranks.

Never have fished that area; closest we ever got to there was on the NE arm out of Taggart Bay....

Thanks T-bone, Yes I figured about that length to get to Corbeau Island. It is just an option and we know a few spots near the Laniel side.

Do you ever fish at the Laniel end of the Lake ? We will be using leeches and most likely still fishing or drifting.

I met Paul Vaiencourt who use used to own Corbeau Island camp a long time ago and we got out the maps and he pointed out the Sand Banks area not to far from Corbeau Island that has good shouls in that area. He also told me that time of year to fish in 25-30 feet of water as the pickerel go deeper.

My nephew and I were up around Corbeau Island last year during that time period exactly. Water was at least a couple feet lower than usual. From what I recall the fish we caught were still relatively shallow (<15 fow). But this year at the end of July our best depth was 26-28 fow...so who knows.

And yes, there are a catalog of great locations in that area of the lake...I think we keep about 25 on the active roster, but favor only a handful. Trouble is, from where you're lodging down to Corbeau Island has to be at least 20+ miles...probably 25+ miles. If you have to go that far to catch fish, something is wrong.

Good luck and have fun!

that's never happened at my end so that concept is foreign to me.

Me also! Little chance of my wife driving my truck, let alone pulling a boat. ;)

Where heading back to Laniel at Brenda's and Jean's Camp POINT AUX PINS . Me and brother-in-law Rob where there June 4th-8th this year with not much luck because of the worst cold front of the summer. The water temp was only 54 degrees and it was wet and cold.
Where bringing our 6 budies and I hope we will do much better on the lake this time. We do know a few spots from our last trip. I met Paul Vaiencourt who use used to own Corbeau Island camp a long time ago and we got out the maps and he pointed out the Sand Banks area not to far from Corbeau Island that has good shouls in that area. He also told me that time of year to fish in 25-30 feet of water as the pickerel go deeper.

Any info on fishing Kipawa this time of year would be much appreciated. Thanks Guys...

No expert here except owning a cottage for 20 years now.  I believe from what I've seen past week, they've slowly started to lower the level.  The trout will be spawning late sept (of course depending on water temperature), from what I know and they want the level lower so the eggs will still be covered once the level is lowered, this is what I understand.
Anybody want to chime in to add or correct me, no problem.
And of course, heavy rain can weigh in on this.

When do they begin dropping the water level typically?
