There’s an old saying on wind direction which has many variations but here's the most popular which I'm sure you've heard: “Wind from the West, fish bite the best. Wind from the East, fish bite the least. Wind from the North, do not go forth. Wind from the South blows bait in their mouth.” Its less so about the direction but the cause for the direction. We’ll cover this more in a blog post soon but for Vail Lake right now the wind is coming from a north easterly direction which means fishing is poor.

Wind Speed

With the wind at 2 mph hardly a puff out there makes for a calm mirror like surface. With the wind so light less ripples in the water makes it more difficult to mask the line and lure on Vail Lake

Moon Phase

  • Updated Just Now

Moon phases have split fishing folk's opinion straight down the middle with the bigger impact on saltwater fishing but some freshwater anglers swear their catch improves when the moon is in a "New" or "Full" moon phase. These phases cause bigger tides making fish more active and susceptible to feeding meaning an opportunity for you to nab a catch. Vail Lake is currently under a "Waxing Gibbous" phase which means its more favorable fishing time.
