I fished Tuesday 08 06 13. There was a light south wind up till 11 AM. I caught around 20 or 30 crappies on minnows. All of them were caught on the south edge of a hump close to the Comlara Park point. It has some brush on the outside drop-off. The fish were in 6 to 10 foot of water, right on the drop off. As long as the wind was blowing, the fish would bite. When the wind died down around noon, the fish quit feeding. I tried many other places that I have caught them in the summer, from the dam to deer Island, but nothing else was working. The fish were mostly small males around 8 inches long. I only kept 9 inchers, so I ended up with 9 of them. On the south side of Deer Island, where the blacktop road is, I caught a couple of medium sized bass, and one small walleye. Nothing on the hump south of Deer Island. Nothing on the flat underneath the power lines down by the dam. There were only around 10 boats on the lake. The temperature was perfect for fishing, and it was enjoyable.

Try slip-bobbers with plain aberdeen hooks under tipped with a minnow (hookeed through the eyes). If you toss them around any shoreline that's wind-blown and contains any brush whatsoever, preferably one near or on a point, you should limit out on decent crappies pretty quickly. Cast out beyond the structure & let the wind bring your slip bobber rig over or just into the structure (play with the slip depth so you don't get snagged) and you should get strikes just as it nears the structure.

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.

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.
