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.

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.
