Water temp = 56-57 degrees,  the lake is in great condition for fishing with the arms slightly stained.  Once again I rescheduled 3 guiding trips last week due to wind.  On Friday late afternoon we did manage to get over 1/2 inch of rain---which we badly needed.  The fishing is picking up for all species, but can be sporadic day to day.  I did see a 28 inch walleye caught and released. (she was a large female full of eggs)

We had another cold front move thru our area on Friday, but hopefully it will be the last one. I'm going to be on the water allot next week with weather permitting so I should be able to give you a very good update on what is happenning on my next report.

 

Walleye--FAIR to GOOD---Jig and minnow fished near deep water in 10-14 feet.  Trolling along the shoreline has also picked up a few fish.  Casting crank baits off of the south side of the dam in early morning and late evening has also been producing fish.

Smallmouth bass--FAIR to GOOD-- Have caught quite a few with a jig and minnow while fishing for Walleye.  Casting near brush and working the shore line can be productive.

Catfish--FAIR----Not many reports on Mr. Whiskers, but up in Romero has bagged a few.

Crappie-FAIR to GOOD--There are some being caught off of the Marina docks and a few are caught trolling flicker shad up around Watson Island and further up the lake.

Whitebass--FAIR to GOOD---Starting to catch them while trolling in both the Ute arm and the Canadian arm.

Largemouth bass - FAIR--I have heard of a few being caught in the brush and in the back of the coves.
