Burchard Lake Opens

By Mark Pinkerton

Nebraska Game and Parks

What a great fishing outing!

I arrived at Burchard Lake July 4th at sunrise to try my luck.

There was little wind and the water was clear and as smooth as glass. What a perfect morning to see if the Bass were biting.

There were a handful of boats on the water and a few anglers scattered around the shoreline of the lake. The water level was still down eight to nine feet.

I decided to try fishing below the memorial bench along the rocks on the southwest side of the lake. With little wind and calm waters I decided to start out fishing a Hula Popper and see if the fish were interested.

Within a few casts I hooked into a nice Largemouth and when landed he measured about17 inches.

The fish was fat and in excellent condition.

Over the next hour I caught several more nice fish, all in good condition.
