Presa Corinchis Mescota Jalisco MX.


Recommended Posts

My wife and I just bought some land by Presa Corinchis Resivour in Jalisco Mx.

    The lake is a high land reservoir near the town of Mescota.  It is a two hour drive from our home in Puerto Vallarta, is a great place to escape from the heat in the summer, and has been rumored to have DD. bass.

       So far the biggest bass I have caught there was 6 pounds, but I hope to unlock the lakes secrets now that it will be my new home water.  Sport fishing pressure is almost zero.  So far I have fished the lake four times, and haven't seen another angler.  Commercial fisherman net the lake at night, but remove the nets during the day.   It will be nice fishing a lake where I don't loose tackle to nets.

         Anyone who wants to explore a new lake, and help me learn to fish a high mountain lake is more than welcome to come give it a try.

       It will be fun.  The weather is much different than other lakes I fish here.  The warmest month is May with an average air temp of 74 degrees, and the coldest month is Jan. with an average air temp of 64 degrees.  A couple days ago I fished the lake, and the surface temp. was 58 at daylight, but warmed to 67 by the end of the day.  While the water doesn't get to cold, I'm not sure it gets warm enough for the Florida bass to get to be giants.  Also the forage is Tilapia, and again while the temp doesn't get cold enough to kill the Tilapia, it doesn't stay warm enough for them to spawn most of the year.  The lack of spawning might greatly reduce the amount of forage for the bass.  There are also bluegill but I haven't seen any.  I wish there were craws or shad to supplement the bass's diet. 

          I don't know how big the bass will get, but I do know my wife loves the mountains, and 70 degree high temp. in the middle of summer will be a great break from the heat of PV.  There are also other lakes within a couple hours drive from Mascota that have a warmer climate I can try for bigger bass. 

       The water at Corinchis is clear, I might have to buy some finesse gear.

Oh my. How will you survive those major temperature swings?? That's sounds amazing. I ran my chainsaw today for 25 minutes and was completely soaked with sweat as it was 80 degrees and 99.7% humidity here in Ga.

That's great!  I am jealous, I love fishing new lakes and I love fishing Mexico.

 

Hopefully you can post some trip reports with more pictures of the lake.  And I wouldn't be overly concerned with the clear water, I have caught plenty of bass at Amistad in Texas with 20lb flouro.  Visibility there runs from 7 to 20 feet usually.  Having said that, one of my rods would have a 10 lb flouro dropshot setup with an Aaron's Magic color Roboworm.
