Haven't posted in a long time, but here goes; Saturday was a little slow. mostly trolling with cranks. Picked up a few small perch, small white bass, some walleye, and caught a couple of Northren. Trying to troll out there was interesting to say the least. The lake was covered with boats like a Wal-Mart Parking lot on Saturday afternoon.

Sunday was a whole different story. Heavy chop, 2.5 to 3ft rollers at times. There was only one other boat out there. If you could keep the "junk" off of the baits, the fish were bitting. Water was full of chopped up weeds. Managed some walleye, couple of Northren. All Northren released. Lots more water headed up that way after heavy rains every day this week, so far.

Seeing dead carp on the lake again this year. Don't know if it was due to the last virus or whatever that has killed them. As long as it's carp only, that's ok. I did see the DNR go past my dock after dark last night. They were moving very slow and looking around. They may have been investigating this.

Checked COCORAHS site (volunteer rainfall monitoring) and volunteer in Markesan reported 6/12 to 6/15 = 4.86 inches of rainfall measured from gauges, no report yet of 6/16.

Drift center of Lake, wind permitting, with nightcrawler/hooks or Jighead with crawler or minnow. Easy for a 3 year old. Should hook: catfish, northern, sheepshead, bass, stripers,perch. Not as much vegetation to deal with. Troll with motor if calm.

Good Luck !

My cottage neighbor on Puckaway said there has been 4" of rain since Monday the 12th of June. The lake should be really rising. Lots of trees down in Princeton. Looks like more rain on the way this weekend too.

Yes, I would say water has dropped at least 18" since memorial day. 

Levels are OK but would be good to get the boards on before the puddle drains.

Referencing gauge readings, on lakepuckaway.com site, at Princeton Dam were recorded as follows:

Boards placed on: 2014: July 19 - Dam 7.08 ft.

                                 2015:  July 08 - Dam 7.82 ft.

                                 2016:  June 25 - Dam 7.10 ft. 

2017: Readings at Dam 5/26: 9.03 ft.; 6/02: 8.50 ft.; 6/09: 7.75 ft.   Approx 1.3 ft drop = water almost 16 inches lower than around Memorial Day, at Princeton Dam. Lower those adjustable docks & good luck getting pontoons off lifts.

According to last entry of June 8, 2017, it was noted boards were hoping to be in place in next week or two, depending on water level conditions  (lakepuckaway.com) (heading What's New)

Northman,

The boards were never removed from the dam last Fall because of the high water.   So through the winter the boards were on the dam.   With the high water this spring the belief is that one of the two boards came free and so only one board in currently on the dam.  Water will drop quickly as water table in the area drops quickly.

That was one of the topics discussed at the meeting on June.

3rd.

Just got back to the flat land from a couple of days at the Puck. Did well trolling, caught a little of everything. The cotton weed is flying ,so trolling the bowl is the way to go. The water is really falling ,I would guess down a foot since memorial day weekend. Used a variety of baits and caught fish on all of them.
