Got out late Sunday on the water by 7:45am.  Too much algae to troll so tried drifting fatheads over the dropoffs for walleye or anything that would bite.

Not one bite, fished till 1:00pm got hot and left.

Tried from 5am to 9:30am near the RR bridge, upper mud deep, and in the ditch, then south side in front of Christie's on the rock bar. Big Reds and crappie minnows produced nothing. Too much algae to drift or troll. Better luck next week?

I was out on Saturday.  I've never seen such of a mess of algae on this lake this early in the year.  "Fishing" was nearly impossible.  The boat launch at Lake Farm was so thick with algae you couldn't even see the surface of the water in some of the lanes.  I fished in a number of spots but spent most of the time cleaning my line.  I was targeting walleye, but only managed one small smallmouth in the few hours I was out.  Frustrating experience overall with the algae and the pleasure boaters.

Special thank you to the fisherman that T-boned my blue Sylvan pontoon on his way out at Lake Farm an hour ago...left a nice dent in my siding.

Started fishing around 930.  Finding shallow clean water was a challenge.  Did not catch lots of fish tonight but quality was good. Hard baits produced better than plastics.

We were out early this morning, fish off Lake Farm, Hog Island then went to Mud,  one crappie was all we  had to show for 4 hours on the lake. We need water temps to get into the mid 60's for fishing to pick up.  Next week maybe the ticket.

I was out last night after work from 5:30 to 8 trolling with a buddy, needless to say i was in the right place after watching other boats catch fish around me but i could not connect.  I am curious what is the average speed for trolling for walleyes?  I had my tiller going as slow as it could at about 2.6-3.0 mph but it seemed too fast, maybe I'll use the trolling motor next time since my battery was dead last night...

Regardless they are out there and biting!  Best of luck to everyone, tight lines friends FN89

On the West end of the lake near Hog Island there is a road that goes down to the lake that you could launch from without a fee.  There's even a small parking area not far from there.  I've accessed the lake there a couple of times for ice fishing.

Head South on Lake Farm Road, left on Alma Road, Left on Waucheeta Trail, the right on McConnell Street.  I don't think they put a dock in there, but if you're launching a kayak you shouldn't have any problem.
