Anything happening out there lately? Still looking for good places and methods for shore fishing Evergreen. I have yet to have any success.

Soooo...I just got home from Evergeen and to my disappointment I saw the gate down below the spillway is STILL open. I'm a bit disappointed that park personnel haven't shut it completely...

Comlara Park staff maintains the spillway. I looked down there around 8pm on Tuesday night. All the dead muskies that were floating and hanging on the fence Sunday morning were gone and the gate looked to be shut to me, so I think the maintenance crew had been down there at some point.

Anyone know if the gate has been shut completely down below the spillway? As of Tuesday evening it was still open about a foot at the bottom allowing fish to swim out downstream. Is the county responsible for maintaining it?

Nasty, Cast orange or chart 1/8 jig heads with 3" Gulp in shad or chart color along the weed edges around 10' of water. Also troll Walli Divers, Jr Thunder Sticks, or Wiggle Warts on the flats and across main lake points. Get you line out and speed just right to where your cranks are just ticking the bottom.

That will get you a limit of 'eyes. Good Luck!!

Evergreen is a disaster!! The water is chocolate milk color all the way throughout the lake. It will be a long long time before that clears up. Mother Nature definitely made sure that we remember she is in charge this year!!

Last time at Evergreen ( 2 weeks ago) I had some luck on the dock by the bait shop, just east of the playground area. There are plants/reeds on one side and rocks on the other. I dragged along the plants and grabbed a couple of nice size croppies, but got hung up a few times as well.

On the other side of the playground there was some decent action on catfish, striped bass and carp close to the shore.

I'm new to the area, and I've been out to Evergreen about 5 times with little luck. I don't have a boat, so I'm looking for tips on location/method for shore fishing on this lake. At this point, I'd be happy to catch any species. Usually, though, I like to look for Bluegill, Crappie, and Walleye/Sauger/Saugeye. It'd be great to get some for a nice dinner! Any tips?

Fished in the afternoon. The heavy rains have turned the upper half of the lake into chocolate. From there on towards the dam, it was clear and green. Caught 7 or 8 cigars, one 14 and one 16. I would imagine the heavy influx of water has turned the Saugeye bite off somewhat. Afternoons are not usually as good as mornings either. In a couple of days, the black water could be all of the way to the dam, especially if it rains more Thursday.

Crappie bite has slowed considerably in my opinion. Went there again this weekend and only cought very small ones. I may have been trying too shallow though as the spawn seems to be WAY over and most fish with any size have moved back out.

I hope to try to target the sauger this week in 10 to 15 feet of water.
