I have taken my son on 2 rides at Coe in the last month. We had a great ride both times.

On our last ride we saw a couple of ponds going up to Wilson Camp, and on Wagon. I was just wondering if anyone knew of any certian ones that may be better than others.

Not a fisherman personally, but folks have posted about fishing in the larger lakes and ponds out there, particularly folks that have gone in and camped.

I did a little fishing at Kelly lake on a backpacking trip. We destroyed the bluegill and crappie, and kept a couple for a nice fish fry. Supposedly there is some decent bass as well, but I didn't have any luck that day.
If I were you, I'd take a rod, an assortment of bass and panfish lures and just try your luck. If you don't get any bites in a half hour, move on.

only been to coe a few times. this past august we lucked out and caught that cool spell....loaded up some old mtbs (probably w/way too much stuff) and set out for coit lake on a late afternoon. we stayed a couple nights @ coit lake. i brought some fishin gear and caught a few (couple smallmouth, crappie) @ coit lake...not the best fisherperson, but there's not a lot of competition out there........good times.

i was out there ridin one time and talked to some dudes @ coit lake that had been out for 8 days....livin off the fish and ridin all the trails......something to look forward to.

I've been fishing at Coit Lake several times, and have often pulled out small largemouth on every other cast. Shore access is somewhat limited due to Tule reeds, so bringing a float tube would be a great idea. Plastic worms on a texas rig or drop-shot works great.
Missisippi lake is supposed to be a prime spot for bass and crappie also, as are several smaller lakes in the area.

Good luck!

Anyone ever fish out at Henry Coe?
I don't know anything about fish, but I caught these two by hand while out backpacking.

Shoe is a size 14, for reference.

There's a guy named Jay that rides out of hunting hollow several times a week, older guy with white hair in a pony tail. Chat him up if you ever see him down there, he fish's usually every Monday and has pulled out some pretty big Bass.

I've caught lots of bass at Mississippi lake on rubber worms with a sliding sinker, as a few on spinner rigs. A few nice crappy out at coit, and a really nice bass out of on of the little ponds out in the wilderness area (can't remember the name right now). Generally the fishing is always good, and the smaller ponds have some nice fish. I used to read about big kokanee (landlocked salmon) out at Mississippi that were left over from when Kaiser used to stock it, but that was years ago and have never heard of anybody catching one personally.
