Water Temperature: 69
Water Clarity: 0

Fished the Mohawk River lock 6 on this past Saturday Sept-9-2006.It was a very bad day of fishing at this lock. I went there with a friend who has an up coming tournament in that lock soon. Water clarity was less than six (6) inches if it was that. Water Temp went from high 60's(68-69) to low 70's (70-71). There was current up at the dam, and there was some current down by the Northway bridges. These were the only places we found measurable current. We caught just about everything except bass. We did catch a few small mouths. But nothing to brag about. We tried a lot of different lures, senko's, a large amount of small (variety of colors) crank baits, jig & pig, top water (but I did catch a nice Northern Pike on a large chug bug-that was fun-at least it broke up the day), I also caught a good size sheepshead-at least that's what I thought it was, and, of course, some nice size walleyes. The fishing was very bad. This was the worst day I ever had at lock six (6). This lock is usually pretty good to me. I have been fishing this lock for about 20 years or so. One thing I will tell you is that there is an extreme amount of damage that was caused by the floods this year. There were spots where it looked like the water had risen maybe 20-30 feet in places. I could see where it up-rooted large willow trees and just placed the trees somewhere down stream on the shore. I think there has been a lot of damage to the bass habitat on the Mohawk River system as a whole this year and, again, because of the extreme flooding. There were places on the river where the weeds were just ripped up and taken away. Certainly if anyone has something different to add please do so, because I am going back to lock 6 soon in the hopes of helping my buddy in his tournament thatís coming up pretty soon.
