Fished Evergreen both Saturday and Sunday. Saugeye bite is definitely on! Worked the weed edges in 8-10 feet of water with jig head and Gulp bait and limited out on Saturday. Went back Sunday and released my limit of keeper Saugeye that day as well.

5/16/2013 I am a die hard fisherman. Arrived at the lake at 5:30AM. The wind was dead quiet. We fished for crappies first. I keep nothing under 9 inches. I had been to the lake last Fri. and had caught a limit of mostly 10 inch and up blacks. They were all males They were not in the normal lay down trees, but up in small indents in the bank, with large bladed grass in them. The water temp started at 61 degrees, and ended at 64. I also caught 4 Saugeye. One 17 and one 18 inches. Today, the water temp started out at 64 degrees, and ended at 71. The crappies were in the grass in the morning, and later on could be caught farther out. They were in 18" of water to 2' of water. These were mostly blacks. I would say, that the next couple of days, the spawn will be on in full force. The problem is, that the lake is high, and some shorelines have so much brush laying in the water that the crappies can spawn up close to the shore, and cannot be reached. We were checked by the game warden, and he said that three other boats had a limit as well. We also caught several Saugeye, but did not fish for them until mid afternoon. Good luck fishing.

Update: 6 Crappies were 11 inch fish. All crappies were males but two. Only two white crappies. All caught on minnows.

I go down to Evergreen lake about once or twice a week in usually do pretty good on crappie but I seen a picture of a guy with a 20 pound flathead and I was wondering if anybody does any catfishing down there and if so where and what kind of bait do you use

Made it to Evergreen Friday evening for an hour and caught 2 crappie. Both on pink jigs under a bobber set at about 30". One male almost 9" and one female that was just over 10" and she was still very plump with eggs. Slow going, but considering the weather pattern we were in, I'm not surprised.

Crappie fishing Saturday May 4th. Didn't get a single bite. Didn't talk to anybody else that caught fish that day either. If the rain holds out I will try again this weekend.

Im new to the area, can someone tell me of a good starting point on Evergreen lake to start fishing for crappies, or walleyes. I know most fisherman don't like to give away any locations, any help will do. Thanks Group Ed

Took a drive up there this AM. South end is very dirty due to rain. Wasn't nearly as bad by the spillway. Water down below looked to be about 20-24" up the fence, ( which looked to be in good shape. ) Could not see any musky, but I'm sure that there has to be some down there.

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.
