On Kegonsa Wednesday & Thursday mornings. VERY nice out, especially after fighting the wind on Mendota the previous two mornings! Water temp at 3' was 58°, at 20' it was 57°F. Marked large numbers of fish in the deep water basin, dropped the camera down a few times but because they were probably mostly carp the bottom was so stirred up it was a waste of time. As mentioned before the smallmouth are hanging on structure, but didn't see any panfish on any of the structure or cribs that I checked. Did see a couple Crappies just outside the weedlines. Hope to get a couple dives in before it turns too bad, found a couple interesting objects that I can't tell what they are with the camera. Rick

Scouting trip this morning, didn't find what I was looking for, just a tad early yet. Water temp was 58, some weed growth, water clarity a bit clouded. Had two bites, hooked both of them, one a 15" smallie other a 16" bucket mouth, both released. Weather the next few days isn't going to help much to improve the bite.

This is a useful website for temps on the Yahara chain. I think the data lags a few hours though.

Looking to find out how the weed growth is progressing on the south shore and in the state park area?

Looking to maybe try this lake out for the first time tomorrow, what landing would be best to go out of and how much does it cost? Thanks!

Lunker, the best place to start at this time of year is along the south shore in front of the country club. There's a shallow weedy area that holds crappies. Gills are usually caught along the south shore, Look for the weedline. Another spot is the rock bar on the west side. It's not hard to find, the DNR marks it with 3 white marker buoys running north to south. White bass, like crappie, tend to be cyclic on this lake. Many years when the crappie are up, the white bass are down.
