On the Lake December 2015

Lake Level: Normal Pool

Water Clarity: 3 Feet

Water temperature: 47 Degrees

Winter is right around the corner and for many anglers, December marks the end of fishing season. The shorter days and cooler temperatures send most species into a winter slumber and most anglers indoors. Holiday parties, gift buying and visiting relatives dominate the December schedule and the long, lazy summer days on the lake are but a distant memory by now.

Call me crazy, but I have never been one to quit fishing just because it is cold outside. Several years ago, I purchased an insulated snowmobile suit for the express purpose of being able to wet a line in the coldest months of the year. Surprisingly, some of the biggest bass that I have caught from Riss Lake have been caught in the month of December. If the urge to fish hits you this month, don’t be afraid to grab a jacket, head to the lake, and give it a try!

Trout, Bass and Crappie continue to feed through the winter and can be caught on a number of different baits and techniques. Trout fishing with spoons, live bait (minnows) and tiny crankbaits in shallow coves can be very productive. I have had a lot of success catching largemouth bass on jigs, crankbaits and silver spoons. Crappie can be hit and miss, but a good bet is a crappie jig fished vertically around both of the marinas.

The key to winter fishing is to slow your retrieve down considerably. With the exception of Rainbow Trout, you will have to concentrate on keeping your bait in front of the fish for much longer. When throwing a jig, try casting and simply shaking the jig in place without any forward movement the lure. Shake…and…rest. Give the bass an opportunity to come to your lure. If you’re fishing crankbaits, try using a “suspending” bait and wait for 20-30 seconds between cranks. The pause is critical with water temperatures below 50 degrees and there is no way that you can fish a lure too slowly.

A key aspect of winter fishing is detecting the strike. Bass and Crappie will likely just inhale the bait with little or no movement of the rod tip. Light line and sensitive rods are essential to reading these soft strikes. Don’t expect much of a fight this time of year either as fish will not have the energy that they have in warmer conditions.

The best part of winter fishing? This is your chance to breathe some fresh air, catch a glimpse of a visiting Bald Eagle and simply be in the great outdoors. Always remember to wear your lifejacket when fishing this time of year and take a buddy with you whenever possible.

Sending out a special wish to all of our friends and neighbors in Riss Lake as well as the Riss Lake Fishing Club: Have a joyous holiday season and year of tight lines in 2016! We’ll look forward to seeing you on the lake!

Fall time means great fishing here at Riss Lake. In late October every year the Riss Lake Fishing Club stocks around 1000 lbs of farm raised Rainbow trout. These silver beauties provide an unique opportunity for anglers of all ages and are a favorite at the dinner table. Trout thrive in colder water temperatures and are relatively easy to catch right through the end of June.

 

For the first two weeks following the delivery by Crystal Lakes Fisheries, Rainbows tend to congregate on the south side of Riss Lake. They can be seen in large schools cruising the shallow waters of the boat ramp and making aerial leaps as they ambush small aquatic insects on the surface. This is a great spot to learn to cast a fly rod and the best bite is early morning or late afternoon.

 

As the population of trout adapt to the new environment, the fish will slowly venture away from the marina. They can be found throughout the lake, but gravitate towards shallow coves. Cemetery Cove, Tri-coves and the shallows adjacent to the "Tubes" are always productive through the winter months.

 

Admittedly, I am not much of a fly fisherman so I prefer to cast for trout. The best equipment for this type of fishing is an ultra-light spinning rod with 6-8 pound monofilament line. The stretch of mono is perfect for hard charging, often acrobatic, fight of a 3 pound Rainbow. Lure selection is not as important as lure color. Generally, any small spoon in silver, gold, chartreuse, blue or orange will catch fish. Live bait including minnows, Berkley "Powerbait" and small crankbaits are also productive.

 

Systematic fan casting to thoroughly search an are is a good strategy. Once the fish have been located, repeatedly cast that area and vary your retrieve from fast to very fast. Trout are instinct biters and will often follow a bait to the boat. Trigger strikes by abruptly changing lure speed or direction.

 

Trout are not indigenous to Riss Lake and will not reproduce in our waters. For this reason, we encourage anglers to harvest their catch and enjoy them as a healthy meal. The best eating fish are in the 1-3 pound category and are simple to prepare. Simply clean your catch, add a pad of butter to the belly cavity (you might also add apple, onion or garlic for flavor), and wrap in aluminum foil. Grill on medium heat for about 3-4 minutes per side or until the meat flakes off of the bone.

 

It's also worth mentioning that RLFC usually stocks 5-10 individual Rainbows Trout in the 4-6 pound range. While these fish are not ideal for eating, they make for a great fish story for a few lucky anglers every year!

 

I hope to see you on the water this month and happy angling!

Riss Lake Clean Up Volunteers

Posted on September 23, 2013 at 9:35 AM Comments comments (0)

Hey, Riss Lake. The following individuals volunteered to walk / boat the shoreline of Riss Lake on Saturday, August 24 to help keep it beautiful.

 

Team Chambers was led by LARRY CHAMBERS. Navigating the boat through the treacherous coves of the lake was DON MacCALLUM. First mate was TERRY GILL. RANDY TIMMERMAN was the anchor. Wait......no, we'll stick with that.

 

MARTY PERREA led Derby Date through the lake. Ably supporting him were MIKE HILDRETH, PETE LOBDELL, and PAUL SCHMITZ.

 

DOUG AND BLAKE YAGER were the only father-son team. As was expected, Blake carried that team single-handedly.

 

LEE MESICK walked the rocks along Hiway 45. He put any mountain goat to shame with his dexterity and balance on the rocks.

 

Both Team CHAMBERS and Team PERREA hauled in 25-foot corrugated tubing. It was by far a record catch for Riss Lake. We're not sure it was going to taste good, but Larry said with the right rub and his ginormous smoker, he could make something tasty out of it.

 

Over the years, the amount of trash picked up along the lake has declined. It is thanks to volunteers such as these and others over the years who have assisted.

 

From the HOA, a sincere thank you.

RLFC Lakeside Picnic

Victor,

 

On behalf of the community of Riss Lake I want to extend our sincere THANK YOU for hosting a wonderful neighborhood event recently. I have had numerous neighbors call me to say that the Riss Lake Fishing Club 5th Annual Lakeside Picnic on June 23rd was the single best event that they have ever attending in Riss Lake.

 

Thank you to Price Chopper, Hen House, Superior Brands and to Gallo Wines for providing food and beverages to make this event SPECTACULAR!

 

We especially appreciate all of the time and planning that UEvent contributed to make this such a success. Your company, as well as your sponsors, have earned the loyalty of many residents of our community and we look forward to many more years of working together!

 

Sincerely,

It’s been a relatively mild winter here in the Midwest leaving Riss Lake free of ice for all of December and January. It is rare to be able to access the lake this time of year and most anglers prefer to stick with indoor activities like area Boat and Outdoor Shows. Cold water fishing is not for everyone, but it can provide some fun opportunities if you dare to brave the elements.

 

Fishing becomes a challenge when water temperatures dip under the 40 degree mark. Fish activity and metabolism slow dramatically because fish are a cold blooded species. Wintertime behavior is restricted to conserving calories, hunkering down finding an area of the thermocline where oxygen and water temperature are optimal. Bass gravitate to deep banks, ledges and drops. They generally will not feed unless the meal is conveniently placed right under their nose!

 

Cold water temperatures have less of an effect on species like Walleye and Crappie and Trout. The Riss Lake Fishing Club has actively been stocking Walleye for four years. Many of these fish are now reaching 18-24 inches. Because Walleye are native to lakes in the Northern United States, they are accustomed to cold water conditions and tend to feed consistently throughout the winter months.

 

Walleye will take a variety of baits including: live minnows, night crawlers and leaches fished under a float as well as a variety of jigs and hard plastic lures. They prefer to forage in low light conditions, at dusk and dawn and especially on cloudy days. Several four and five pound Walleye have been caught this year while trolling crankbaits. The most productive areas tend to be coves where water depths range from 4-10 feet.

 

Crappie will congregate and “school” during cold weather and can provide an excellent bite provided you determine the correct depth of the school. Good baits for Crappie include live minnows under a slip-float, Marabou hair jigs and just about any color of tube jig. Smaller baits, super-light lines and a long sensitive rod are essential in targeting Crappie. Vertical fishing, which involves dropping the jig straight down to a pre-determined depth, especially around the marina slips, can also be a very productive technique this time of year.

 

For a lot of fishermen (and fisherwomen!) winter is the best time to organize tackle boxes, read a good fishing magazine like “Bassmaster” or “The In-fisherman” and patiently wait for that Spring bite. For a few dedicated (aka: crazy!) anglers even the winter chill can’t keep us off of the lake!

 

Be sure to check the website www.RISSLAKEFISHINGCLUB.com for a schedule of 2012 fishing club events!

 

See you on the lake!

The best part about the Riss Lake Fishing Club, in my opinion, is the friendships that have grown out of this organization. I have had the privilege of meeting and getting to know many of the residents here at Riss Lake and enjoy the social aspect of the club as much as I enjoy spending time on the water.


As a result, I have had the opportunity to learn new techniques and to fish other lakes with club members. Some of my most memorable trips are: catching giant wipers with Larry Chamber at Blue Springs Lake in the hot August sun, trying my hand at fly fishing with Dwight Orr at Taneycomo this past Fall and getting “schooled” by Brent Frazee during our regular club tournaments.


I also enjoy introducing neighbors to bass fishing, especially Charlie Gocken, Jeff Black and my buddy Greg Kays. Living at Riss Lake is really ideal for anyone who loves to fish as much as I do!


Earlier this month I was invited by a club member to fish a world-famous “Trophy” Lake outside of Dallas, Texas. This was actually my fourth trip with Neil O’Brien to Lake Fork to spend a weekend with the guys, eat a lot of great food and catch some very big largemouth Bass. Howard Schapiro came along to keep us honest and ended up catching the biggest bass of his life as well.


While Texas has suffered record drought, the fishing has not been affected at all. Over the course of two and a half days, our group landed fifteen bass over five pounds including three that were over eleven pounds and several in the eight to nine pound range. Naturally, we released all of these fish and took pictures for the bragging rights.


I can’t tell you how excited I was to finally surpass the ten pound mark for a largemouth bass. My fish weighed 11.04 lbs and the fight was exciting to say the very least. More than once I wondered if I would ever get this fish to the boat. Fish just don’t get this big by being stupid. Not to be outdone, my friend Ken hooked an 11.5 pounder fifteen minutes later in the same spot. It was cool to be the one who landed his buddy’s biggest bass ever!


The fishing club has given me the chance to share moments like these with friends and to create memories for a lifetime. I encourage you to get active in the club this year and join in the fun.


See you on the lake!

HAPPY NEW YEAR RISS LAKE!!!

 

What a fantastic year 2011 was for the Riss Lake Fishing Club! The fishing was outstanding and attendance at our scheduled events was way up. This new year brings new opportunities to enjoy the lake and to get involved with a fantastic organization.

 

When Larry Chambers and I founded the Riss Lake Fishing Club in 2005 our mission was clear: encourage the preservation and enjoyment of Riss Lake and provide families with an opportunity to meet others who enjoy the lake. It has been very rewarding to see this organization grow!

 

RLFC hosts regular club tournaments and lake related activities that are open to any resident who wishes to attend. In addition to our instructional social events at the PAC, there are several fishing tournaments scheduled throughout the year.

 

Two exciting new projects have been slated for 2012 and we are currently seeking neighborhood volunteers.

 

The first project is the planting of trees along Highway 45 at the north end of the lake. With the assistance of the Missouri Department of Conservation, the club will plant a variety of small trees (approximately 300) beginning in late March. The goal is to reduce traffic noise, beautify the shoreline, add wildlife habitat and to create a more private setting for the lake.

 

We are also teaming up with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and the University of Missouri to begin water quality sampling and monitoring to insure that our lake stays healthy.

 

Linda Gocken has volunteered to lead this project which involves a small time commitment for training. Volunteers need to contact Linda before January 31st to schedule training. Email Linda at [email protected] or call her at (402) 680-4566.

 

Learn more about the Lakes of Missouri Volunteer Program at www.lmvp.org. This is a fun and educational opportunity for anyone with scientific mind!

 

Riss Lake Fishing Club has a great website where you can find information these and other lake related activities. www.RissLakeFishingClub.com Derek Weber does a great job of posting photos, fishing tips and club updates. Check in regularly to keep up to date. Contact Derek if you wish to receive email notifications about upcoming events.

 

Wishing you and your family a Happy, Healthy and Fun New Year and looking forward to seeing you on the lake!

December is here and holidays will soon be upon us! The fishing season is winding down as the water cools and the days grow shorter. This season provides us with wonderful opportunities to gather and share and count our blessings. They also make for the perfect chance to spin a few fish tales since you’ve got a captive audience!

 

If you’re geared up with proper clothing and the temperature stays tolerable, this is still a good time to catch some crappie and rainbow trout on Riss Lake. The fish will school more tightly in the winter and require more effort to locate. Once you’ve found them, this is still a great time of year to fish.

 

My best luck through December is often in the shallow coves around the lake and along the rocks that line both the North and South dams. Shallow areas with dark bottoms and rocks tend to stay just a degree or two warmer than deep areas. Fish will congregate here where plankton and minnows are present.

 

Choose smaller baits with less action and concentrate on a slow and steady retrieve. Live baits like minnows and night crawlers also work well. Remember that all fish species are cold-blooded meaning that their metabolism slows as water temperatures fall. They will not chase baits as aggressively and are careful about expending energy to feed.

 

Wind blown points and bluff can also produce fish. Flashy baits like casting spoons bounced along the bottom can also draw strikes.

 

A big thanks to all who came out in October to watch the Trout Stock. We had about 30 club members and their families attend this unique event.

 

This year we stocked approximately 1100 pounds of farm raised trout which ended up being about 928 individual fish. Remember that trout will not reproduce in Riss Lake, so feel free to keep and cook any fish that you wish to keep.

 

We always suggest that you return lunkers so that other anglers can enjoy the thrill of landing a big one!

 

Wishing you and your family the very best holidays and a Happy New Year! See you on the lake in 2012!

By the time this issue hits your mailbox autumn will be in full swing on Riss Lake! The foliage around our lake provides a spectacular show and the fishing really heats up!

 

Cooler water temperatures and shorter days cause the acres of aquatic growth to begin to die. This leaves fish with fewer areas of cover and results in some very large fish being caught.

 

I’ve had my best luck in the late fall and early winter concentrating on the remaining weed beds in nearly any depth of water. I know I often sound like a broken record, but to locate fish on Riss Lake concentrate on weed edges.

 

These areas can now be worked effectively with nearly any bait in your tackle box. Fast-moving flat crank baits like the RatLTrap, spinnerbaits, large creature baits like the Zoom lizard, and large single-tail grubs work great. As always, try a variety of retrieves (fast, stop-and-start, slow and super slow (including shaking the bait in place)).

 

Bass are often very aggressive this time of year because they know that winter is coming and they need to pack on the calories. If you catch fish in a particular area, stay there and fish it out. Fall means that baitfish and prey cluster together and their predators do the same.

 

The fishing club has worked hard to stock a variety of fish in the lake so don’t forget that live bait (worms, minnows, crayfish) will also work well this time of year for catching Catfish, Crappie, Walleye and Trout from the banks around the marina.

 

Once again, Riss Lake Fishing Club plans to stock approximately 1200-1400 Rainbow Trout in the lake during the month of October.

 

We coordinate the stocking when the water temperature remains below 60 degrees consistently. Plan on several weeks of fantastic trout fishing this month and remember to email us your photos to be posted at www.RissLakeFishingClub.com.

 

Tight Lines till I see you on the lake!

Cooler temperatures have finally arrived and the fishing is definitely heating up on Riss Lake. August has been a great month for both fishing and for fun lake activities. Our sixth annual Kid’s/Parents Fishing Day on August 6th was a BIG HIT!

 

The weather cooperated perfectly that morning with overcast skies and mild temperatures and the fishing was spectacular! Around fifteen families turned out with their little ones who were definitely having a great time hauling in Bass, Bluegill and Catfish. There were more fish caught and released this year than before and the experience for many parents was just as rewarding.

 

For club members that help out with this event, it is our mission to show you how much fun you can have fishing and just hanging out at the marina for the afternoon! We had a GREAT time and hope that you will participate again next year.

 

Following the fishing the sun popped out just in time for our annual Kids Vs. Parents water fight! Volunteers had filled more than 800 water balloons and armed with Super Soakers, the parents did their best to defend against the deftly streams of water coming from the shore! This was a blast!

 

The August 27th Shoreline Cleanup Day was also a huge success. The cleanup was relatively easy this year with a great turnout from volunteers. We were done in less than two hours and collected around twenty bags of trash from the shore.

 

Thank you to all of the clean up volunteers especially: Nick and Jeff Black, Dwight Orr, Linda Gocken, Mike McGuire, Don MacCallum, Glen Yager, Brent Frazee, Chris Clausen, George Zigelhofer, Drew and Cole Mazeitis, Aunie Perrea and Larry Chambers.

 

Please join us on September 17th for the final Bass Tournament of the year and mark your calendar for the Year End BBQ Dinner at the PAC on October 11, 2011.

What a fantastic summer it has been at Riss Lake! It is encouraging to see more and more families enjoying time together on the water. It is also fun to see so many residents kayaking and canoeing on our beautiful lake!

 

I’ve just returned from southern Missouri where we spent a week with family at Big Cedar Lodge at Table Rock Lake. While most of you are already familiar with this area, it was my first visit and I was really impressed! If you’ve already visited Big Cedar you’ve discovered a jewel, if you haven’t then you must GO!

 

Only four hours south of Kansas City you will find some of the most unique topography anywhere in the country. Rolling hills, jagged rock and crystal clear waters are the hallmark of the Ozarks. Table Rock Lake with its miles of natural shoreline and minimal boat traffic makes a great destination for vacationers.

 

The accommodations at Big Cedar were perfect for our family reunion. Located right on the water, we brought a boat and rented a slip at the marina for a modest $20/day. Rooms at the lodge were pricey ($250+/night) but factoring in all of the included amenities they are still a value.

 

My five-year-old niece just couldn’t get enough of the Lazy River, the Kid’s Fishing tournament and free Smores by the campfire. We enjoyed several meals together on our patio and roamed the grounds of the lodge enjoying nature at its finest.

 

The fishing on Table Rock Lake is pretty fantastic too! We caught nice bass each day even on 100 degree days! The lake is known for good populations of Largemouth but also is home to some very feisty Smallmouth Bass.

 

It is also worth mentioning that Lake Taneycomo is only a few miles away from Big Cedar. This lake which stays a constant 55 degrees year round is stocked with Trout and provides excellent fishing.

 

If you’re looking for an easy destination that offers something for everyone, Table Rock Lake and Big Cedar Lodge is definitely a MUST SEE!

 

Please join us on September 17th for the final Bass Tournament of the year and mark your calendar for the Year End BBQ Dinner at the PAC on October 11, 2011.

The dog days of summer are here and the daytime fishing has slowed considerably. As water surface temperatures warm, the oxygen content diminishes, pushing fish to cooler and deeper waters. Most species will spend long hot days buried deep in the Coontail and American Pondweed which graces our shores, coming to the edges only in the morning and evening to feed.

 

This time of year is a great time to try some good ol’ fashioned night fishin’. You have probably heard the country song “…you and me go fishing in the dark, casting our poles and counting the stars…” Well, this is the perfect time to give it a try!

 

Concentrate your time on main lake points and steep rock drop-offs which are adjacent to very deep water (30+ feet). Plastic worms and jig and pig combinations are the best lure choices, although topwater action can also be good. I’ve also done well with spinnerbaits specifically designed for night fishing with a pork trailer.

 

Chose dark colors, preferably black, black and blue, black and red or motor oil. Fishing at night requires close attention to the line as most bites will be felt and not seen. Often, a slight “tick” in the line is all that it takes for a big bass to engulf a bait. Use portable black lights to illuminate your monofilament line for better strike detection.

 

Summertime largemouth bass can be a real challenge to land at night, so make sure that you have a lantern and sturdy net. A pair of needle nose pliers for hook removal is also handy.

 

I will never forget my first night bass fishing trip in August of 1986 when we boated over 125 largemouths. They ranged from 12”-20” and all were caught using texas- rigged 7” plastic worms. From that night on, night fishin’ is one of my favorite summertime activities!

 

August is a great month to join the Riss Lake Fishing Club for fun activities. Mark your calendar early for the KIDS/PARENTS FISHING DAY SATURDAY AUGUST 6th! This is a great event and a chance to watch the kids have a blast. Starts at 9 AM with a water balloon/squirt gun fight following lunch at noon.

 

Join us on August 27th as well for the 6th ANNUAL SHORELINE CLEANUP. Bring an old pair of tennis shoes and help us keep Riss Lake beautiful.

 

Until I see you on the lake…
