Water temp = 78 degrees,  main lake looks pretty good  and the arms are moderately stained.. 

I had a guiding trip yesterday (Sunday) and it was just OK fishing.  We boated 3 Walleye, 2-3 Smallies and about 10 White bass.  We found a very large school of Whites,  but it was late into the trip and we could not seem to find them again after about 10 minutes of being on top of them.  I do think that if we just went looking for the Whites at the start of the trip that we would have caught limits of them.  The school that we found was 30 feet down in 40 feet of water.  All of the Walleye were taken trolling over brush in 10-14 feet of water.

Walleye-- SLOW  -- I have been catch a few , but they are not jumping into the boat.  The bite seems to end about mid morning so get out there early.

Smallmouth bass-- GOOD--Wacky rigged Senkos in 15-20 feet of water off of the points should produce some fish.  Catching quite a few while trolling over brush while going for the Walleye.

Catfish--FAIR --Fish near cat tails in 4-5 feeet of water with stinkbaits.  Some larger fish have been taken up the Ute (10 pounders)

Crappie-POOR -No report

Whitebass--GOOD to VERY GOOD--Its all about finding the schools.  Troll in and out of the many coves that are 30-40 feet deep until you locate them on the fishfinder, then swap out your gear with slabs and start vertical jigging for them.

Largemouth bass -FAIR--  A few being caught working the brush and trees.  I have actually caught a few lately while troliing over the brush.

 

FISH-ON,
