As of about 5pm yesterday evening the fence was holding. No fish rescue will be planned until the water stops going over and those fish are in danger of running out of oxygen. Normally that's mid June. That's always the way the DNR has handled it in the past. Couple years they didn't have enough time or they ran out of money for gas and didn't do a rescue. I hope that doesn't happen this year.

It's chocolate milk and flooded! 6+" of rain in about 9 hours yesterday. The spillway is rolling. You can see so many muskies swimming around down there. I'm afraid that lake has lost or is still losing a major portion of it's muskie population. It's a shame. Evergreen was just starting to get back to it's old form before 2008 when Hurricane Ike rolled through and did the same thing by washing a huge population of muskies out.

Anyone make it out yet this year? Wondering if anything is hitting yet and if the lake made it back up to normal level after getting so low last year.

On Sunday my young lady friend and I caught 27 crappie between 9 3/4 to 12 1/2 inches. She also caught one keeper saugeye. We were fishing with crappie rigs size 4 in 15-18 foot of water moving at a slow troll.

The crappie bite seems to be picking up on jigs tipped with minnows or gulp. Did well in the rain this past weekend mid day with a steady bite that seemed to hover around 16 feet of water.
