Lake conditions have pretty much remained the same the past few weeks. Despite all the rain and pop up thunderstorms, the water looks great! Good color with little to no debris. Fishing has slowed down for many anglers due to the extreme heat and humidity. But, still seeing a lot of big bass and walleye being caught! The boat launce has more parking available, but the lower road is still under water at the current level. Courtesy dock remains under water as well.

Black Bass – Good off of points and steep bluffs with a jig, Texas Rigged worm and large plastics. Also good on top water plugs early. Deep diving crank baits are also working for some.
Walleye – Good to Fair on medium to large crank baits trolling in 20 to 30 ft. Running baits around 12 to 18 ft range. Also good on dragging night crawlers. Also hitting white or silver 1/2 oz spoons off the points.
Crappie – Slow on live minnows due to the heat. Catching some in the 20 ft range around trees. Fair when trolling. Suspended in deeper water.
