Water Level – 667.6 and Dropping
Water Temp – 58 to 60 degrees
Water – Very Clear
Even with the drop in surface temp, the fishing has really improved since last weekend! Walleye are really starting to feed as well as the crappie. The bass are very shallow with the males working the nest sites. Haven’t seen any big females come off the beds yet, but this sun is helping warm the surface for them to spawn. Should be a great weekend for all species of fish!
Black Bass – Good to Fair on small plastics very close to the banks and in flooded brush. Also good on a spinner bait during windy conditions.
Walleye – Good on small to medium crank baits such as Hot n’ Tots or #7 Flicker Shads. Also Good on bottom bouncing night crawlers. Walleye are fairly shallow.
Crappie – Good to Fair on live minnows. Should start to hit them in shallow water in the coves on swimming minnows as the surface temp warms up this week.
