This was one of the hottest Canada Day long weekend that I can remember. We spent it traditionally on our favorite Kawartha lake - gorgeous Stony lake.

Despite the heat the fish was biting well and over 3 days we caught more than 30 bass, 18 walleyes and more than 15 good crappies between three of us. Most of the walleyes were under or over the 35 cm lower slot limit, so we took 7 over 35 for shore lunch for our group.

I was lucky to get a nice Canada day present with this monster 27 inch walter, who was quickly released.

Thanks, guys.

I don't fish Stony often, mostly couple of times a year and cannot say that it is better or worse than the other Kawartha lakes, but to me it's the most picturesque of all the Kawartha's.

The lake is very overwhelming with structure, such as islands, shoals, weedbeds etc. but the fish is picky and the fishing for me was always a hit and miss there.

Fished Stony Lake as well on the weekend and it was great as usual. My son and I got 27" fish on back to back mornings. Only got 8 over the 2 mornings 3 keepers the rest above or below slot size. We only fished from 5am to about 8, too hot to fish the afternoon evenings. Lots of nice large and smallmouth as well, all released, nieceest bass was a 17" smally. Beautiful lake, couple nice shacks on the water there!

Nice walleyes, Mike!

Yeah, Stony is a true Kawartha gem- very beautiful lake.

Most of our walleyes were caught Saturday afternoon between 5-8 pm when the West breeze picked up and sun went into a cloudiness. The boat traffic did not seem to bother them much.

Lots of bass for us as well but no size except a few 2 pounders.

Crappies were caught as usual, right before and after sunset.

Beautiful fish guys, what kind of depth and presentation were the walleye caught?
I have been having some success on the Walleye in Stoney but mostly smaller fish.

I've had success running worm harnesses in the 15 to 18 foot depths, about 1.5 mph. Greens blues and white seem to work for me. Running over structure and weed beds is also helpful. We get a lot of small fish too, released as many under slot as over. Take lots of worms all those bluegills, rock bass and regular bass also like that presentation. Those 27" plus fish are not super common, those are he biggest we've caught in 11 years fishing the lake. I think luck has a lot to do with it!
