Took my youngest boy and a friend out this afternoon. Started jigging below the dam and moved south casting brush along both east and west shorelines. Fishing was tough and the current was fast. This spillway was open and current pushed us around 2.5 mph if we just drifted. Managed 1 small walleye, 2 big white bass and a big Smallie. There was a ton of Algae floating and if you werent moving your line, it would build up on your line and jig.

Great day to be on the water. Water temps were around 63. Fishing should get better with cooler temps in the forecast but current may remain fast with all the rain coming this weekend.

Fished this morning and it was tough.  Managed 2 nice white bass, 3 small walleyes and a catfish; all still swimming.  Very few bites but good weather and a great day.

Does anyone know when the dock will be pulled at Adams County launch off 21? How about the bait shop launch below the dam?

FYI, they pulled the dock at May's Point launch (Castle Rock lake SW of the trestle bridge) this morning. Why they're pulling them this early is beyond me.

Fished from 9am to 1200pm. Fished from the dam down to the bend with no luck. I used minnows under a bobber and trolled with a chartreuse beetle spin. A lot of boats out and most were anchored in the channel. Saw a few fish boated. With that said it was a perfect day to be on the water. Saw a bunch of eagles in the trees and soaring. I used the launch by the bridge on 21. The majority of plates were from Illinois.

Do you guys know if there is a walleye or white bass fall fun at Petenwell Dam?  I like to come there to try for some fast action white bass and walleye catch.  I was there in May spring time run, but have not tried fishing fall at the dam.  Any info is appreciated.  Thank you.

Try taking pictures of people littering and of the vehicles/license plates they get into and do some real good.
