General Conditions

Ice out was around April 13th. Water level has been full and fairly stable most of the season so far with current water temps around 68 to 70.

Walleye Report

Walleye are hitting off the edges of the deep bars with jig and minnow rigs.

Crappie Report

Crappies have been hitting very well in the shallows for the last 2 weeks and some are still being caught shallow. Bluegill are hitting well in the shallows with some very nice sized ones being caught. Use worms or pieces of crawler.

Musky Report

Musky fishing has gotten off to a good start with several good sized one being caught already. There are excellent weeds coming up and water temps are perfect so we expect a very good June. Bucktails, surface jerk baits, and some topwater action as well.

Northern/Smallmouth Bass report

Smallmouth have been hitting very well tight to shoreline structure such as brush and wood or on the shallow hard bottom bars. Northern are being caught in good numbers on the weedy shorelines and weed edges and weed beds..
