Billy from Anglers All reports: The water in the Bay is slowly starting to clear up and fishing is good. The Sand Cut area continues to be clearing up nicely and anglers are catching Trout using trolling spoons and Walleye using Crawler Harnesses. Boat landings in Ashland are all open at this time!
Scott Bretting from River Rock reports.....The May Fly (Green Bay Bugs) hatch has started, which will bring fish to the surface so don't be afraid to use top water baits. Trolling with Shallow Diving Stick Baits has been successful catching Browns and Lake Trout. There have been a lot of boats out trolling and doing really good in the Flats and the South Channel catching their limit. Anglers need to continue using caution and think safety right now. There is floating debris and other obstructions coming in from Fish Creek after the storm we received two weeks ago. With higher water there are floating materials coming in. Use Caution!!!!! The water clarity off of Kakagon Sloughs and the Sand Cut Area is not horrible. When the water clarity is down anglers use live bait and rattle baits. Some landings on the Inlands are closed after the storm damage. We are looking for clearer water and warm temps. It's that time of year for bug hatches like sand flies so come prepared with repellents.
