Bluegills somewhat active on the river.  But crappie fishing was better when  it was cool fall-like weather.  Yesterday got 7 bass on surface popper, largest 17".  Thanks to Linker Gill on 'sprinkling' advice.

Finally the fish we're biting Tuesday night. Landed multiple LMB between 15"-17", and one dink at 12". Most fish located in a small area, found them after moving 4 times. Fished from 4:30-7, maybe 3 other boats on the lake, ended the day being the only boat out there.

The water level is definitely low right now. It can fluctuate significantly. Earlier this summer at the DNR launch you couldn't walk from the pier to the pavement without getting your feet wet.

The dnr launch. I don't know if the water level is just low right now or what. The library launch is fine 3-4 feet deep almost the entire way, but it does get pretty shallow 1.5-2 ft deep right before you get to where the boats coming from the marina are. The river channel from the dnr launch was shallow almost the entire way down the river. I launched there with a friend at the beginning of the season and it didn't seem as bad, granted we were in a flat bottom with a 2.5 on the back. I hit a spot coming down yesterday and my depth was .5, .6 ft for about 100 yards and my motor was definitely struggling, so I shut it down and trolled till it got back to almost 2ft.
