The lake is dropping at almost 1/2 a foot per day! That is making for a very slow bite for most species of fish. However, the water temp is cooling off which should trigger the fish to start feeding in their fall pattern. Been seeing some big bass come in off of deep diving crank baits as well as buzz baits! Walleye and crappie are getting better every week as the lake gets back down to around normal power pool.
